DONG Oil Pipe A/S intends to establish a new LPG loading facility in Port of Skærbæk.
The LPG is a by-product from the process of stabilising incoming "live crude oil" from the Danish North Sea offshore oil fields.
Ramboll has performed a location study in order to determine the optimum location and layout of the loading jetty.
The location study included a brief analysis of design vessels, manoeuvring and navigational conditions, wind and wave conditions and a description of the possible berthing structures.
Finally, the analysis lead to a cost estimate and a simple SWOT-analysis describing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats related to the different location possibilities.
The existing users, geotechnical conditions, social impact, environmental and archaeological constraints etc. have been analysed and taken into account.
Draft layouts of the different locations were presented.
Finally a cost estimate for the different locations has been prepared.
The Port Location Study will be incorporated by DONG Oil Pile into the FEED report for the entire Crude Oil process installations. Together with an EIA and the cost estimate, the study is included in the FEED report.
