Thornton Engineering manufactured a Flare Scrubber for an Australian oil and gas producer. Used on an offshore oil platform, our scope of work included:

  • Vessel design and detailing, including third-party verification
  • Statutory design registration
  • Global procurement of raw materials
  • Development of several weld procedures, including exotics
  • Manufacture of vessel
  • Testing of vessel – hydrostatic, proof load testing
  • Surface treatment and decontamination
  • Transportation to site
  • Steel was sourced internationally from a mill in France due to the strict chemical restrictions.

All fabrication for the project was performed in-house, giving Thornton Engineering greater project control with less reliance on sub-contractors and less risk on scheduled activities. This included rolling, all welding activities, hydrotesting, proof load testing, surface preparation and decontamination testing in our 40m in-line paint shop.
