Exheat Industrial to Supply FWD Flameproof Air Warmers and HFT Air Sensing Thermostats To Hebron Field Project

Exheat Industrial are to supply their FWD flameproof hazardous area air warmers and HFT hazardous area air sensing thermostats to the Hebron Field offshore project in Canada. T&D are authorised distributors and stockist or the full EXHEAT industrial range including hazardous area fan heaters & air warmers, flameproof & industrial immersion heaters, hazardous area line heaters, water heaters & thermostat products

Exheat Industrial's FWD flameproof air warmers are designed for use in small work or storage areas which are located in Zone 1 and 2 or Zone 21 and 22 ATEX Hazardous Areas where the flammable atmosphere is a IIA, IIB or IIC Gas Group. They are suitable for ambient temperatures from -60°C to +60°C in small work or storage areas in environments such as offshore installations, crane cabs, fuel servicing areas and aircraft hanger service bays.

FWD hazardous area air warmers are constructed with a fabricated steel or stainless steel enclosure which is rated IP66/67 and are available to suit temperature classifications T2, T3 & T4.

The HFT Air Sensing Thermostat is designed for the temperature control of work or storage areas within Zone 1 & 2 or Zone 21 & 22 hazardous areas, in conjunction with a Hazardous Area air heater such as the FWD air heaters. HFT hazardous area thermostats are wall mounted and have a stainless steel enclosure which is rated weatherproof at IP67 and are available with a control range of 0ºC to 40ºC or 0ºC to 60ºC.

The Hebron field (Hebron, Ben Nevis and West Ben Nevis fields) is located 350 km offshore the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The GBS (gravity-based structure) will have the capacity to store up to 1.2 MMbbl of oil (180,000-230,000 cubic metres). At peak, Hebron will pump 150,000 b/d, while the topsides will need a liquids handling capacity of up to 315,000 b/d due to the high volumes of produced water. It will also have to inject between 100 and 175 MMcf/d of gas. The topsides will weigh 20,000-28,000 tons.

The platform will be designed to handle 200,000 to 350,000 b/d of produced water and up to 300 mmcf/d of gas as well as inject as much as 470,000 b/d of sea water. The platform will need to support up to 55 well slots. It is scheduled for start-up in Q4 2017.
