Other scope handled by Abalto engineers was design reviews and approval, the selecting C&A systems components and packages together with integration were all challenges managed during detailed design.  Procurement management through enforcing the ITP and conducting staged witness and package acceptance testing at vendors works such as Haimo China, Bentley Nevada Hungary, Wilmax Singapore, EnviroKenetics USA, Cimac UAE.  Reviews managed included LOPA based SIL workshop in line with IEC 61508, HAZOP, HAZID and HSE design and operation Case studies.

Abalto site responsibility included managing C&A scope through ensuring that the construction methodologies are in accordance with Shell DEP, OPMG, PDO standards and project Quality Plan.  Ensuring Flawless Start-up processes are incorporated in construction activities and report on shortfalls to develop with the rest of the team mitigation strategies. Main challenges are to pursue safety, quality, technical integrity, without affecting the contractor schedule.  We worked on encouraging the team and contractor to obtain full buy-in of the HSE policies and thereby achieve the set HSE targets.  The focus is currently on assisting contractor in areas of weakness such as area completion focus, multidiscipline coordination and provision of work fronts.
