BLACK CAT ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION, QATAR Key Facts Company: Black Cat Engineering & Construction Website: Industry: Oil & Gas Country: Qatar Products Used: • CADWorx ® Plant Professional • CAESAR II ® • PV Elite ® BLACK CAT SUCCEEDS ON QATAR PROJECT THROUGH ACCURACY AND AUTOMATION With headquarters in Doha, Qatar, Black Cat Engineering & Construction (Black Cat) has been providing engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning for three decades on complex projects in multiple industries and disciplines. Its experience and capabilities extend from oil and gas to industrial facilities and infrastructures, with it multidisciplinary teams providing clients with expertise during the feasibility phases through to the professional execution of the projects. Qatar Fertilizer Company (QAFCO) chose Black Cat to design and install a flash tank and knock-out drum for ammonia recovery and flare systems for two plants, the Ammonia 1 and 2 units, providing a three-month schedule to complete the project. Located in Mesaieed, Qatar, the project required the design of 24-inch flare headers, 18-inch and 12-inch blow down headers, a new pipe rack and a safety relief valve (SRV) outlet connection from all the equipment in the two units. Piping length totaled approximately one kilometer with diameters ranging from one inch to 24 inches in schedules 20, 30, 40 and 80. Black Cat's assignment encompassed design, erection, installation, testing, pre-commissioning, commissioning and performance testing, plus overall project management and training. PRODUCING ACCURATE DELIVERABLES WITH CADWORX Because 50% of the piping work was to be done with the plant shut down, full accuracy was a critical priority to ensure precise fit at installation so that the length of the shut down could be kept to a minimum. The project required accurate engineering deliverables including as-built models and drawings of equipment, pipe racks and piping for the facility's two ammonia units to ensure both sound design and accurate deliverables for the small bore piping. Black Cat was able to leverage the visualization that CADWorx provides to ensure the accuracy of the model and design. CASE STUDY
