W2.2_ Ahmed Al Azizi_ Investigation on Water Injection Pumps Engine’s Reliability


  1. Problem Definition

 Water Injection pumps is used to inject the treated produced water. There are four injection pumps with engine driven. Operation team observes that preventive and corrective maintenance cost increases. This investigation aimed to analyze the major maintenance cost including spare parts and manpower. Actual cost and frequency of normal preventive maintenance (1200 hrs) due during 2014 including spare parts and manpower. Calculate failure rate occurred during 2013 for water injection pumps engines. Proposed alternative solution for the management to consider in near future.

W9.0_Ahmed Al Azizi_ Attitudes towards Risk of Oil Deferment during Tie-in of Two Phase Separators Project with Existing Facility


  1. Problem Definition

During Tie-in stage in two phase separators project the operation and construction team will stand to accomplish this activity with minimum Oil deferment to ensure that overall production target is met. Attitude is a state of mind, mental view or disposition with regard to a fact. Individual or group can make a choice of attitude to lean towards a particular desired response, behavior or outcome. Risk attitude is a chosen state of mind with regard to those uncertainties that could have a positive or negative effect on objectives, driven by perception. Attitude has an impact on executing the tie-in procedure from individuals or operation and construction teams.

W6.0_ Ahmed Al Azizi_ Concept Selection of Produced Water Pipeline project from A Station to B Station by using Matrix Analysis


  1. Problem Recognition

Currently the produced water from skim tank at A station is pumped to evaporation ponds using water disposal pump. Off late the water cut of wells have increased that resulted in more water being pumped to evaporation ponds and eventually flooding of ponds. There is an urgent need to address this problem on a long term basis.

Produced water treatment facilities and Water injection (WI) facilities are available at B station. The company is planning to transport produced water from A to B station through 8.5 Km pipeline.
