Renaissance United Limited (RUL) had extensive experience in the turnkey construction of onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities. In Nigeria, RUL has completed both Phase I and Phase II of the Calabar Oil Products Terminal and the Bonny Export Terminal. In Southern Thailand, RUL through a joint venture installed a 210 km gas pipeline. Through subsidiaries, RUL also has the rights to oil and natural gas exploitation and production in China, and supplies natural gas to the cities of Anlu, Dawu and Xiaochang in Hubei Province, PRC.
Through its wholly-owned subsidiary Excellent Empire Limited, RUL supplies natural gas under 30-year exclusive contracts to the cities of Anlu, Dawu and Xiaochang in Hubei Province, PRC.
Gas customers in these cities include commercial and government offices such as IRAS, Anlu Hotel, Bank of China, and industrial companies such as Ke Wei Aluminium Company, and residential housing estates.
With the completion of CNG receiving stations, CNG will be supplied to buses, taxis and other cities in the region.
Through its subsidiaries, RUL has the rights for exploitation and production of oil and natural gas in the Ciyaobao and Dongdaoliangzi areas of the Ningxia Autonomous Region, PRC.
The Bonny Export Terminal (US$251 m) in Port Harcourt of Nigeria involves the construction of an oil products export terminal, including pipelines, sea island, tanks, pumping systems, and auxiliary facilities.The EPC contract was won in a tender against international competitors. RUL proposed an innovative design and arranged a financing for the construction of the project. The RUL alternative provided the client saving in capital costs and earlier revenue from speedier construction.
RUL arranged funding by means of a revolving credit facility based on an oil product offtake agreement. The credit facility was syndicated through major European banks.
This major project included detailed engineering, purchasing of major components and on site construction and installation.
RUL was contracted to design and construct an onshore deballasting facility in conjunction with a 50,000 DWT tanker product loading terminal on Pulau Pesek, Singapore. The treatment facility receives tanker ballast water, removes slop oil for processing and discharges a high grade of effluent, meeting the stringent requirements set by the Ministry of Environment.
The project was completed, on schedule, 10 months after contract award.
RUL, in a joint venture, completed the contract for the design, supply and installation of a 36″ diameter high pressure gas pipeline in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The 57 km long pipeline runs from the Badak gas field to the Train F LNG plant at Bontang and is constructed within the same right-of-way (ROW) as existing 36″, 42″, 16″ and 6″ pipelines.
The major challenge of this project, was to install the new line without disturbing the adjacent “live” gas pipelines. Innovative pipeline construction techniques were required to ensure that rigid specifications, high standards of workmanship and speed of construction were achieved.
The project was completed in 23 months, one month ahead of schedule
RUL completed the contract to provide a 34 km gas pipeline system consisting of 20″ dia and 12″ dia pipeline, including two metering and regulating sales stations for Petronas Gas Sdn Bhd, as part of Malaysia’s Peninsular Gas Utilisation Project. The 20″ dia pipeline is to supply gas to the Melaka Lube Oil Refinery whilst the 12″ dia pipeline is for the 220 MW Gas Turbine at the Tanjung Kling Power Station.
Despite additions to the work scope, the project was successfully completed ahead of schedule
Following competitive tender, RUL was contracted to hook-up and commission an 8 leg, 16 well gas platform in the Indian Ocean.With the jacket, piles and conductors installed, a 4000T module support frame, eight topsides modules, a heli-deck and a flare boom were then installed and readied for hook-up.
RUL’s 540 man workforce was accommodated on a converted semi-submersible drilling rig. Despite weather delays and significant additions to work scope, the hook-up and commissioning was successfully completed on schedule
The Sabah Energy Corporation, created to provide facilities onshore and offshore to gather, process and transport gas for the Sabah Gas Utilisation project, contracted RUL to construct the onshore Gas Terminal for the project..
Mechanical completion was achieved within the 20 month contract period.
RUL was contracted to design and construct a US$160 million offshore crude oil loading terminal. The award, based on an RUL alternative technical proposal, was the largest subsea pipeline installed by the bottom pull method.
Despite difficult site conditions, the project was completed in 9 months, two months ahead of schedule
RUL was contracted to construct the gas receiving terminal and manifold center at the Ranca Ranca Industrial Estate on Labuan to receive and distribute gas from the offshore Samarang and Erb West Fields.
The construction was completed, on schedule, in 3 months.
RUL was contracted to design, fabricate and install a 4-pile wellhead platform, the centerpiece of the Nosrat Field Development.
Work on this challenging project was completed within the tight contract period of 9 months.
As part of the Nosrat Field Development, RUL was contracted to hook-up a 12″ submarine pipeline and 15 kV power cable to an existing production platform. RUL was responsible for laying the pipeline and cable from the Nosrat Platform, which it also engineered and constructed.
Switch gear was installed on the PP platform for the cable tie-in. Following hydrostatic and electrical testing, the hook-up was successfully completed, on schedule.
As part of the massive Sabah Gas Utilization Project, RUL was contracted to lay six kilometers of 18″ gas transmission pipeline to connect the onshore gas receiving terminal, also constructed by RUL, to the Ranca Ranca industrial estate on the other side of Labuan Island. The route for the buried pipeline passes through many types of terrain: hilly jungle, mangrove swamps and domestic and industrial developments. This presented a combination of installation problems that were successfully overcome. On completion, the pipeline was hydro-tested, flushed and then dried with methanol.
Brown & Root contracted RUL to prepare the shore approach for two 14″ submarine gas pipeline from the Samarang and Erb West fields, part of the massive Sabah Gas Utilization Project.
The trench was then backfilled and the sheet piles removed. Final tie-in to the beach valves was carried out after hydro-testing of the submarine lines was completed.
As part of the Sabah Energy Corporation’s massive Gas Utilization Project, RUL was contracted to lay 11 kilometers of 18″ gas transmission pipeline, four kilometers crossing a bay including tidal flats of sand, soft mud and extensive rock and coral outcrops.
Due to poor ground conditions, engineered material was imported to backfill the trench, bringing the job to a successful close on schedule, 7 months after commencement.
RUL was awarded the contract for the design, supply and installation of a Single Mooring (SPM) Buoy and two 34″ pipelines offshore Kaoshiung, Taiwan, for unloading diesel and naptha.
Despite several occasions where the offshore work was halted due the typhoons, the project was successfully completed ahead of schedule.
