Kalaekule Improvement Project

The KC Platform Improvement Project was to extend the operational life of two wellhead platforms (KCDP-A and KCDP-B), a production platform (KCPP-A) and a flare structure (KCVJ-A) in 20 m water depth for another 20 years, changing their operation mode from normally manned to not normally manned and improving the facilities to meet DPR safety and environmental requirements.

In the first phase of the project IMPaC inspected the facility and the existing documentation and prepared a concept for the project. IMPaC provided basic and detailed design for the necessary improvements in the second phase of the project. IMPaC designed a new jacket and developed the concept for removal of damaged jacket, topside removal and re-installation, and riser re-installation.
