Specific Design


SNF has capabilities and competences to adapt design and construction of polymer facilities to match with:

  • International standards (API, ASME)
  • Client’s specific requirements
  • Field constrains (climatic and soil conditions, available footprint)


Our presence worldwide and our global network enable to achieve complex turn-key projects not only focusing on polymer injection but also including water treatment and oil separation offering our customer fully integrated solutions for their field developments.
SNF’s know-how and experience enables to execute full EPC contract:
– EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation)
– DBOOM (Design, Build, Own, Operate & Maintain).

Our engineering teams can provide optimised and competitive solutions based on standardised equipment in order to reduce costs and execution time.

In order to ease facilities set-up, SNF supports its clients worldwide for installation and construction. Our experts and local technicians will carry-out preinspection to identify tie-in-points. They will perform plot area surveys and identify road access.

Offshore environment differs from onshore: environmental and space constraints must be considered. SNF engineering can take these requirements into consideration to provide client with optimised injection units.

Example of constrains to be considered:
• Minimized footprint and weight optimization
• Reinforced structure
• Corrosion protection
• Full hazardous classification (ATEX)

Specific location in terms of seasonal climatic conditions results in a need to design for cold weather, snow build-up, high winds, high rainfall and leads to additional design considerations such as, insulated buildings, additional heating/HVAC, heat trace requirements, specific roof design, ice rakes for roofs, overhead protection for doorways, low temperature rating for externally located equipment & instrumentation…

Local regulatory requirements for individual locations within Canada and for Alaska impact the design & layout and can result in additional design documentation and review requirements from third parties. These would include:
• Structural welding conformed to Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) requirements,
• Pressure piping systems reviewed by and registered with the relevant local regulatory authority (ABSA, TSASK, etc.)
• CSA certified panel shop and Electrical and Instrumentation systems conformed to CSA & CEC requirements.
• Instrumentation and cabling rated for cold weather conditions (arctic rated where required)
• Design documentation reviewed and sealed/stamped by a registered Professional Engineer
