SMEC team kicks off Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for multi liquid fuel pipeline, Ghana

SMEC’s Oil & Gas design team, based in Pakistan has been engaged to deliver Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of a 270-kilometre long, 26-inch diameter multi-liquid fuel pipeline running from Accra, Ghana’s capital, to Kumasi, a large city in the Ashanti region.

SMEC’s Oil & Gas design team, based in Pakistan has been engaged to deliver Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of a 270-kilometre long, 26-inch diameter multi-liquid fuel pipeline running from Accra, Ghana’s capital, to Kumasi, a large city in the Ashanti region.

As a part of the project scope, the design team recently conducted a three-day virtual training session with the client - Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST). The session was coordinated by SMEC in Ghana and attended by the client team including senior managers and depot plant operatives.

The training session covered project design protocols, engineering standards, detailed explanation of deliverables, methodology, interface with other disciplines, hydraulic analysis, and software utilization.

Outputs and feedback from the workshop will be used to inform the engineering solution. A key consideration will be the FEED’s interface with the project Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning.

SMEC has already commenced work on developing the process design for the FEED package.This will include pipes, civil infrastructure, tanks, mechanical and electrical controls, and safety studies.



Following the training session, Shared Abrar Sharif, General Manager Engineering Operations - SMEC Oil & Gas said,

“The session enabled our team to interact and review the 3D-model in real time, as if being on site.Our efforts enabled BOST staff to build a stronger understanding of the varying operational aspects of different solutions whilst helping to forge a safer project culture for their staff.”
