Carrier has been selected by one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies to design and manufacture custom-made cooling units.
The units are designed to address the complexities of process cooling on an oil rig
Carrier Marine & Offshore Systems’ experts designed custom cooling solutions to address the specific challenges of the Egina deep offshore oil and gas field in Nigeria, located 130 kilometers offshore, at a water depth of 1,750 meters.
The company implemented a precise process cooling application on the floating production, storage and offloading unit connected to the submarine station.
The Carrier AquaForce 30XW chillers used for the project were reinforced for the offshore environment with additional protection, stainless steel components, high-reliability cable gland and additional painting layers.
Dedicated laboratory tests have been run to demonstrate performance and compliance with all major offshore certifications.
“Our experts are able to fully customize these process cooling units for oil and gas applications, demonstrating their ability to deliver optimal solutions for demanding conditions,” said Diederik van Steenis, managing director, Carrier Marine & Offshore Systems.
“Carrier’s track record of reliability has solidified its position as a valued supplier for oil and gas providers.”
