  • Maintenance & Operating Procedures
  • Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) / Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Analysis
  • Electrical Area Classifications (EAC)
  • Process Safety Information (PSI) updates
Specialty Structural Engineering

Novetus have extensive experience providing structural engineering support across the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical sectors for clients all over the world.
Typical services include:

  • Onshore equipment/pipe supports and foundation engineering
  • Offshore fixed platform, topsides, repairs, rig additions
  • Coastal structures (berthing/mooring dolphins, docks)
  • Structural Integrity Management
  • Finite element analysis (FEA) (linear, nonlinear, dynamic, static)
  • Fatigue, extreme loading (fire, blast, dropped object, fracture)
Brownfield Engineering

Novetus has a team of engineers who are experts in process optimization studies, debottlenecking studies, instrumentation and control philosophies, process simulations, and all the associated infrastructure modifications that accompany these types of projects. Novetus focuses on safety, which also involves minimizing the number of onsite construction man-hours.  Novetus employees are proud of their accomplishments in executing brownfield projects with minimal downtime to the operating facility.
