    Management plan for steam production and use at IOC
  • PERIOD
    2006-2007

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BBA analyzed the current situation and alternatives available to IOC for producing and using steam. BBA then proposed a plan for managing energy production and operations based as much on site equipment efficiency and performance as on the cost and life cycle analysis. The BBA team proposed several scenarios: 

  • Decentralized heating and reduction of the heating demand
  • Steam production with an 8 MW electrical boiler
  • Fuel oil steam production and system optimization
  • Electric/oil heating system optimization
  • Conversion to high efficiency systems such as geothermal energy, etc.
