1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. Background
TML is operating offshore oil field facilities situated in the PM3 and PM-305 CAA blocks located in
the Gulf of Thailand.
In compliance with TML's inspection strategy for TML offshore facilities in PM3 field, Baseline
Inspection has to be carried out on platform structures and topside static equipment.
The overall objectives of the baseline inspection are to:
 Produce an asset register phase 1 in Excel format, ready to upload in the CIMS, for
managing corrective inspection events in the computerised inspection management system
(CIMS);
 Produce an asset register phase 2 in Excel format, ready to upload in the CIMS, for
managing preventive inspections in the CIMS;
 Measure piping and equipment thicknesses for corrosion monitoring purpose before first oil /
gas;
 Document fabrication anomalies for inspection studies (RBI) and later inspection;
 Get fabrication data (i.e. NDT drawings, weld summary records) of the structures for
inspection studies (RBI);
 Get equipment datasheets, and inspection / calibration certificates;
 Take photographs of the equipments & nameplates, piping supports, and structural members
(especially subsea structures with limited access when installed);
 Raise any integrity issues that can be fixed on site to the project team and ensure these are
included in the construction punchlist;
 Develop Inspection workpack including material take-off for Pressure Vessels & Heat
Exchangers;
 Identify requirements for future piping inspection such as scaffolding, insulation removal and
other special needs.
This document details how to organize, carry out and report a platform baseline inspection.

2. SCOPE
TML baseline inspection covers all piping, pipelines, topsides process equipments and structures
(sub-structures, topsides, bridges and flares).
However, TML want to concentrate baseline inspection on piping and process equipments that
belong to corrosion circuits which failure could generate health, safety, production or environmental
issues. Prior to site inspection, a corrosion circuits study shall be carried out.

2.1. Corrosion Circuit Study


All piping and topsides process equipments shall be assigned to a corrosion circuit, which is a
classification by material type and containment properties. The corrosion circuit study shall be
carried out by a Process Engineer and Inspection / Corrosion Engineer when the latest Approved for
Construction (AFC) drawings are available. This activity takes about 5 days for small platforms (i.e.
BKA, BKC), and about 2 to 3 weeks for larger platforms (i.e. BRA, SAA). During the corrosion circuit
review, the process engineer shall also check for any inappropriate pressure ratings of piping and
process equipments.
When all piping and process equipments assigned with a corrosion circuit, the table below shall be
utilised to prioritise the baseline inspection.

a report and uploaded into CIMS.
For the above tasks, appointed third-party Structural Engineer / Inspectors shall assist TML OPS
Inspection Engineer.

3.7. Pipelines
Pipelines will be subject to Gauging Pig (Base Plate Pig) survey and Side Scan Sonar (SSS) survey
following installation. The gauging pig utilises plate of size equivalent to the minimum allowable

installation that may constrain normal pipeline operations.
Side scan sonar is performed to identify locations with span lengths exceeding allowable limits.
These spans will be rectified prior to hydrotesting the pipeline.
Both gauge pigging and SSS survey will be managed by TML Projects department. The reports of
these surveys will be submitted to the TML Operations department as part of the final documentation
submission.

5. EXECUTION PLAN
5.1. Topsides Baseline Inspection
Figure 1 shows the typical topsides construction stages at the yard and the suitable time to execute
the baseline inspection activities. The project stages change depending on the delivery of materials
to site, topsides design, barge and lifting crane availability, work scheduled offshore etc. Typically all
structural work will be carried out first. When the structures are in place, the static equipment and
piping are installed, and then hydrotested. When the static equipments are in place, the electrical
and instrumentation works commence. Finally, the topside will be lifted or rolled out into a barge,
drilling derrick or similar vessel and sailed off for installation. Some work may be completed offshore.
The number of trips to the yard for baseline inspection depends on the quantity of equipment, piping
and corrosion monitoring devices requiring inspection. If these equipments can be inspected in one
trip to the yard, the trip shall be planned between mechanical completions date and electrical &
instrumentation completions date.
The objective is to ensure that there is enough time at the yard to inspect all equipment, piping, and
corrosion monitoring device in the critical corrosion circuit. Refer to prioritisation table in section 2.1
for the critical corrosion circuit.
Towards the end fabrication process there will many activities taking place including hydrotesting and
the manning level will be high. This will slow down the baseline inspection activity, especially UTWT
survey, where some sections will be restricted due to hydrotests or activities. To lessen the workload
during congestion period, one or more visits to the yard shall be planned to partially complete the
baseline inspection workscope.
For detailed execution plan see Appendix 10.

5.2. Structure Baseline Inspection


The structural survey shall be carried out when the major welding, NDT and painting tasks are
completed, however there are enough scaffolds around the structures to perform adequate visual
inspection. This will normally be 1 week prior to load out dates, but shall be confirmed with the TML
site client representative.
