Terminal Expansion Feasibility Study

Sacré-Davey conducted a multi-discipline feasibility study on the expansion of the client’s terminal, for the purpose of modifying existing systems to both load and unload new products. Product is received by rail and loaded onto ocean-going bulk liquid vessels. One of the challenges with this particular project is the limited space available for additional storage capacity, resulting in innovative design using a combination of existing and new storage tanks. As part of the study, Sacré-Davey is providing an AACE Class III Capital Cost Estimate and construction plan to minimize the amount of shutdown time required while modifying the client’s facilities.

Liquid natural gas production

Liquid Natural Gas Production/Dispensing Facilitiy

Sacré-Davey Engineering and Berg Chilling Systems Inc. (Berg) investigated the feasibility and costs of building and operating a small scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant to produce, store, and dispense LNG to a fleet of 50 trucks employing Westport High Pressure Direct Injection (HPDI) natural gas engines. Sacré-Davey prepared process flow diagrams and equipment layout and preliminary site plans. Sacré-Davey also prepared a Class III cost estimate to compare the cost for the purchase and installation of the packaged facility versus the cost for a facility consisting of individual integrated equipment.

Underground Storage Solvent Tank

Sacré-Davey was asked to verify the design of a tank truck unloading facility with an underground pentane storage tank and confirm that it would meet all applicable fire and safety codes. Sacré-Davey based its evaluation on a summary of the BC Fire Code, provided P&ID’s, datasheets and production information, vendor communication, and specifications as well as general knowledge of similar installations for fuelling applications. Sacré-Davey developed a modified design concept and then completed detailed design, equipment specification, permitting, and purchasing as well as construction and commissioning assistance.

Remote Location Emergency Power and Fuel Supply

Sacré-Davey was contracted to provide mechanical, civil, and electrical design services, as well as construction management services, to several remote British Columbia locations. The work involved the conversion of diesel-fuelled emergency generators to propane and natural gas systems.  Strict new federal codes and standards on the design of liquid petroleum facilities made these propane and natural gas systems a clean and reliable alternative. Maintenance guides and overall project reports were provided to the client to facilitate the year-to-year maintenance of the facility.

LNG station

Permanent LNG Station

Sacré-Davey acted as the owner’s engineer for the project from its inception, and performed the preliminary feasibility study, preparation of vendor bid packages for major equipment, overall site layout and design, preparation and submission of safety documentation to local authorities, and mechanical, structural, and electrical integration engineering for all site equipment.

Compression station unit

Compressor Station Unit

Sacré-Davey has been contracted to switch a Taylor Compressor Station 1 (CS-1) Unit 15 from sweet residue gas service to sour service, replacing the existing 50 years old reciprocating compressors. Project objectives include reducing CS-1 operating costs by replacing the current compressors with the more efficient, reliable and cost-effective turbine compressor Unit 15. With this project, Sacré-Davey will improve the reliability and efficiency of the compressor station while avoiding the high capital and installation costs of a new compressor.

Facility of depropanizer tower

Depropanizer Tower Replacement

Sacré-Davey provided full-scope engineering services and project management for the preparation of drawings, bid package for purchase, as well as all necessary purchasing and construction documents for an existing depropanizer tower which had reached the end of its service life. Our client wanted to replace the existing tower and meet new capacity and feed conditions. Sacré-Davey simulated the tower with the new feed composition and increased rate.  The simulation showed that the existing tower diameter was adequate but high-capacity trays were required to match the new feed composition and rate.
