Front End Engineering and Design
Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) engineering develop a basic engineering package to a package suitable for use as the basis for detailed design. FEED includes the preparation of a +/- 15 – 25% cost estimate. The deliverables of FEED are such that a decision to proceed with capital investment can be made.
FEED development includes:
  • Development of Piping and Instrument Diagrams and control philosophy
  • Preparation of project equipment specifications
  • Preparation of process and mechanical datasheets for equipment
  • Preparation of major instrument & electrical datasheets such as multiphase flow-meters, Choke valves, emergency shutdown valves and switchboards
  • Development of Plant Layout, including equipment location, pipe routings, walkways, escapeways, buildings and room layouts
  • Offshore structural design of the topsides and substructure, if applicable
  • Design reviews including HAZID, ENVID, HAZOP, RAM, Constructability and others as necessary
  • Procurement activities for major equipment items and Long Lead Items to enable order placement.
