Innovation at Work
High costs and intensive service of firetube maintenance has been a growing problem for both vertical and horizontal treaters. Due to the corrosive environment of the firetube’s location on a vessel (water contact), the risk of failure is significant and the threat of a catastrophic accident (fire) is very high. Even the slightest imperfection in metal integrity from corrosion, such as a small pin-hole, can destroy an entire production facility as the result of fire…and several have been destroyed. This firetube problem posed both a significant environmental risk and severe safety issue – many times occurring after it was too late to prevent the incident.
With the extensive oil and gas production background of the 12:eleven team, multiple solutions to mitigate the risk of these firetube failures were evaluated and considered. In order to innovate, many traditional and conventional mental models and production processes were eliminated during the problem-solving exercise. The ultimate solution was to eliminate a conventional treater and introduce indirect heating with a complementary piece of equipment. This allowed for indirect oil heating through a low-pressure method in a non-corrosive environment; therefore, mitigating risk of firetube failures. This new, innovative process not only reduced the environmental risk and the obvious safety issue, but additional safety improvements were realized as it relates to maintenance. The positive impact of the solution also justified a special spacing variance order from the state commission authority. This variance allows for the placement of the production vessel much closer to the storage tanks; thus, significantly reducing the production pad size and resulting in large customer savings.
