CRAT Completes Catalyst Change-out at BP's Tangguh LNG Plant

In June 2019, CR Asia Thailand (CRAT) in cooperation with a local partner, PT. Kotaminyak Internusa (KMI) supported Indonesian client, BP Berau Ltd, during the annual shutdown of its LNG plant in Tangguh.

The scope of this job consisted of unloading and loading of three drier units as well as a new Mercury Removal Unit (MRU).

Faced with such a short duration to perform the whole change-out, CRAT prepared 3 sets of teams and equipment to execute the work as efficiently as possible. CR Asia's own innovative technologies were introduced to help increase efficiency even further. Such technologies included the automated four-drum tipper, CHEP bins and One-Way Packaging (OWP) bags. These innovations were designed to improve the efficiency and safety of catalyst unloading.

Overall, the job was completed safely and on time. The client was very grateful for CRAT's hard work, inventive approach and attention to safety.
