NGL Storage Facility

NGL storage facility

Audubon Engineering Solutions’ scope of work included process design and engineering  for the facility’s topsides, Total Installed Cost (TIC) estimating, P&IDs, and PHA and LOPA reviews. Additional services included performing a Front-end Engineering Design (FEED) study to determine the scope of work and EPC schedule, and risk register for the entire project. Completion on the 7.5 MMbbl NGL storage project was accelerated and completed within 12 months.
