Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

FPSO, Offshore Ghana

 
 

Application Date:

January 20th 2017

 
 

Application Situation:

Lube Oil Tanks onboard an FPSO located offshore.

 
 

Problem:

A crack was found on a Stainles Steel LO tank on one of the gas turbine generator sets. The crack ran approximately 5-10cm around a 1" nozzle.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1511 (Super HT-Metal)

Belzona 1391T 

 

Substrate:

Stainless Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How system Leaflet TCC-1 and following a client approved Method Statement. A doubler plate was fabricated and sealed in place with Belzona 1511 before Belzona 1391T was injected to cold bond and seal the doubler plate to the tank. This sealed the leak and added extra strenght to the tank.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

As the facility is hydrocarbon live, hot work was not an option. The Belzona application not only sealed the leak but added extra strength to the tank.
