Costain performed a complex system review for the client, who wanted to investigate the relief systems for 18 differently configured floating vessels.

The main activities performed were: 

  • Relief scenarios for vessel systems reviewed
  • Establishing the range of physical properties of the fluids being relieved
  • Summary table for each asset generated highlighting proposed actions
  • Undersized pipe supply vessels highlighted
  • Alternative actions proposed where appropriate
  • Performing calculations for relief scenario
  • Checking relief capacity against required rate
  • Calculation of maximum relief rate


This complex task was completed in good time and with a positive result.
