Liberty Tank Farm, BP Alaska Endicott, Beaufort Sea, Alaska

EEIS Consulting Engineers, Inc. (EEIS) was the prime consultant providing architectural/life safety design; civil, structural, mechanical process, mechanical HVAC, and electrical engineering; and instrumentation and piping design. The Liberty Tank Farm consisted of six 1,000-barrel vertical tanks and three steel modules to support drilling during BP’s development of the Liberty Project. The tanks contained a variety of drilling fluids. The modules housed piping, pumps, valves, HVAC, electrical systems, and controls, as well as associated stairs, landings, and catwalks.

Oooguruk Tank Farm, Oooguruk Island, Beaufort Sea, North Slope, Alaska

EEIS was the prime consultant providing architectural/life safety design; civil, structural, mechanical process, mechanical HVAC, and electrical engineering; and instrumentation and piping design. The Oooguruk Tank Farm had twenty-seven 600-barrel vertical tanks containing a variety of liquids to support drilling. Seven pipeway modules adjacent to the tanks contained the piping, valves, pumps, and controls for moving liquids from the tanks to the mix pits in the Rig Support Building and other facilities on the island. The truckable steel modules provided their own containment for activities within the modules. The modules and tanks were connected by a system of stairs and catwalks that met Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and International Building Code (IBC) standards. Bear cages with heavy steel bars were located at each facility access point to protect personnel from polar bears. EEIS also provided bidding support, procurement submittal review, and construction support.

Point Thomson Tank Farm, Point Thomson, North Slope, Alaska

EEIS was the prime consultant providing architectural/life safety design; civil, structural, mechanical process, mechanical HVAC, and electrical engineering; and instrumentation and piping design. The tank farm included eight 200,000-gallon diesel storage tanks, 38 feet in diameter, 24 feet tall, plus all associated piping, electrical, and instrumentation. EEIS also provided material requisitions and construction support. The project started in May, and by September the tanks were designed, bid, fabricated in Washington State, and barged to the remote pad at Point Thomson on the shoreline of the Beaufort Sea.

Bulk Fuel Facility, Wainwright, North Slope, Alaska

EEIS was the prime consultant providing architectural/life safety design; civil, structural, mechanical process, mechanical HVAC, and electrical engineering; and instrumentation and piping design. The project provided support to Chukchi Sea oil exploration by ConocoPhillips Alaska. The 450,000-gallon Bulk Fuel Facility near the village of Wainwright stored Jet A-1 fuel for use by helicopter operations. The facility consisted of 12 custom 37,500-gallon UL 142 tanks that were mounted on skids and truckable; a control module; a wastewater treatment module; a truck fueling platform; and associated manifolds, piping, valves, walkways, containment cells, access roads, security fencing, lighting, and signage. The Control Module was divided into three sections: one section housed the facility office and electrical distribution equipment, one section provided heated storage, and one section contained the pumps and filters. The wastewater treatment module housed the oil-water separator and reclaimed fuel filter. The Bulk Fuel Facility tied into a pipeline shared with the existing Wainwright tank farm. The fuel-dispensing system was designed to fill a truck for hauling to a remote helipad. Complete operating instructions were developed to ensure chain of custody of the Jet A-1 fuel. EEIS also provided procurement, fabrication support, and an operation procedures manual.

Pogo Mine Tank Farm Modifications, Delta Junction, Alaska

EEIS was the prime consultant providing architectural/life safety design; civil, structural, mechanical process, and electrical engineering; and instrumentation and piping design for a new tank farm to replace an old existing tank farm. The existing tank farm contained diesel, gasoline, and Jet-A1 fuel storage tanks. Design of the new tank farm included regrading and widening access roads, replacing tank farm containment liner systems with new double-wall tanks, designing a new high-flow dispensing shelter, rearranging and providing improvements for truck fill stations and the other dispensing shelters, installing permanent steel piping, and replacing all steel stairs, landings, and catwalks. The existing gasoline tank and dispenser were in good condition and were relocated, and a new Jet-A1 tank and pumping module were designed to support helicopter operations. EEIS prepared bid documents for the project, which included performance specifications for purchase and installation of a new fill-and-dispensing access control system with automated inventory and accounting capabilities; obtained vendor quotes; and assisted with system selection. EEIS provided construction support for the project.

Barite Silo Storage Tanks, North Slope, Alaska

EEIS designed the foundations for twenty 35-foot-high silos that weighed 25,000 pounds empty and 80,000 pounds full. Because of the low seismicity of the North Slope, wind controlled the design. The tanks were tied together to distribute the wind loads and were supported on rig mats.
