Project Scope:
EU regulations controlling substances which Deplete the Ozone Layer (HFCF gases) are changing. From January 2015 the sale and transportation of the refrigerant currently in use (R22 or Freon) at the FPS Refrigerated Liquid Petroleum Gas, RLPG plant will be prohibited. This means a partial loss of ability to top up the existing system and makes continued long term operation of the existing RLPG plant impossible
The impact of shutting down the RLPG plant is significant. Approximately 400 mboed of offshore North Sea production is supported by the operation of the FPS RLPG plant. Having to curtail this amount of production would have obvious financial and reputational impacts on .

The KLPG Chilldown Project is essentially a project to replace the existing RLPG plant with a similar RLPG plant designed to utilise an EU approved refrigerant (R410A). The new plant is currently estimated to come online in Q1 2017 and is designed to operate until 2032.
The project will install a new refrigeration plant which will operate utilising R410A as the refrigerant gas, replacing the existing Freon (R22) system. The gas properties of Freon and R410A differ sufficiently to require the installed equipment be specified to different design conditions.

The plant will consist of:
* Six PAU's each housing the main process equipment.
* Condenser package.
* Two of skid mounted LP Compressors.
* Two of skid mounted HP Compressors.
* Pre-assembled switch room with adjacent LER.
* Associated pipework, culverts and ties ins.
* Modifications to existing utilities.

The KLPG Chilldown Project is a high intensity schedule driven project, it requires to be fast tracked to completion. The start-up date is Q1 2017, therefore candidates must be in a position to be released immediately from their current role.
