Master Plan Development
WorleyParsons key strength lies in our capability to assemble multidisciplinary teams lead by experienced master planners capable of integrating all aspects of these projects.
Our master planning capabilities are further reinforced by our experience in detailed design engineering for a broad range of industrial and urban projects.
Core master planning skills include:
- Site analysis – opportunities and constraints mapping
- Identification of industry requirements - utilities, transport, construction operation
- Arrangement and integration of compatible land uses
- Preparation of FEED and other studies to provide input to the master plan
- Optimization of infrastructure layouts
- Comprehensive documentation and mapping of project inputs and outcomes.
Supply Chain Solutions
Select provides high level strategic planning and concept development for the entire supply chain from the resource to the market.
The supply chain can simply consist of a “pit to port” scenario, or can consist of a more lengthy sequence of infrastructure components (such those required in an LNG project covering the gas gathering, liquefaction, shipping and eventual re-gasification).
WorleyParsons offers a single point of contact for coordinating the strategic planning phase with the aim to devise a supply chain which delivers the optimal business outcome in the shortest possible time, yet is flexible enough to accommodate changes in the business environment.
Dynamic Simulation is the process of developing a mathematical model of an existing or proposed real world system in order to test, verify and optimize its behaviour. These models give customers the ability to examine the handling of materials and information, explore alternative strategies and optimize performance. The result is major savings in resources, downtime and overall operational cost.
Specific uses of dynamic simulation include:
- Storage requirements in process, resource and marine industries
- Transport fleet sizes and schedule considerations for road, rail and sea
- Inter-modal facility capacity studies
- Process interaction studies
- Risk and reliability assessments
- De-bottlenecking studies
Water Cycle Management
WorleyParsons’ team of water professionals can identify and deliver the optimum solution to the supply of water for process and daily operations over the lifetime of a project, combined with a long term strategy for managing liquid waste streams. Our Select team works collaboratively with customers in the critical early stages of a project providing planning, project identification, options analysis, business case development, conceptual designs, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies.
WorleyParsons proprietary decision support software development tool, WaterRIDE, has been developed and refined by practising water resource engineer programs over many years. WaterRIDE provides animation, data retrieval and analysis to assist:
- Pipeline and network route planning
- Flood model processing
- Water supply model processing
- Emergency response planning
- Sewer model processing
Our watercycle services cover all types of watercycle projects including services to support:
- Stand alone industrial and commercial customers
- Municipal style water and wastewater projects
- As part of an integrated infrastructure service for owners and developers, including comprehensive infrastructure solutions for:
- Industrial parks and similar large developments
- Resource and energy developments, in challenging locations around the world from remote mining projects in desert areas to resource developments inside the artic circle.
Our water professionals are also a key part of our EcoNomics initiative providing full analysis of environmental, social and financial sustainability.
Site Selection and Approvals Management
Select provides an integrated site selection and approvals management service to provide customers with an efficient path through the regulatory maze.
Through the formal Environmental Impact Assessment process, WorleyParsons provides comprehensive environmental and social input into project design at the critical early conceptual phase that addresses:
- Water consumption and impact on aquatic ecology
- Air emissions and their potential effect on human health and the environment
- Project footprint and assessment of impacts to flora and fauna
- Social and economic impact assessment
- Reclamation planning and implementation
These services are integrated with our project delivery capability to optimize both environmental and project outcomes, helping to assure timely project delivery and streamlined project approval.
Our multidisciplinary team of experts with extensive experience in site selection can provide customers with supporting information and advice to ensure all significant issues are evaluated prior to settling on a site including:
- Environmental impact
- Dredging strategy
- Geotechnical issues
- Layouts and future expansion
- Metocean considerations
The requirements for regulatory approvals for major developments are often complex and may pre-determine the rate of progress of a development. Identification and timing of approvals is critical to ensure the project meets all statutory requirements and covers all aspects necessary for project completion.
WorleyParsons’ Select team are experienced in the liaison with statutory authorities. Services in this area include:
- Advice on administrative protocols for regulatory approvals
- Site selection based upon environmental and safety siting constraints
- Preparation of approvals documentation such as drilling permit applications, pipeline licenses, works approvals, environmental impact statements, and environmental management plans and reports
- Government liaison
- Community consultation and stakeholder liaison
For large projects in remote locations, at a time of unprecedented resource constraints, it is the optimal management of construction logistics that can ultimately determine the success of the planned development.
Development Realisation Planning Services:
Select offers construction management expertise to customers considering the available options for a proposed development. It is the cycling back of this real-time construction information that differentiates the Select offering within the front-end consulting market. Construction management input early in the concept development stage can allow customers to address topics such as early works and temporary infrastructure; overall workforce logistics strategy and the use of high value project delivery techniques
High Value Project Delivery (HVPD)
WorleyParsons HVPD offering optimizes project delivery by focusing on construction logistics. HVPD is suited to customers seeking an effective execution solution that maintains quality standards and mitigates risks associated with large projects; remote locations; harsh environments; site safety and security; environmental permitting; resourcing within overheated markets and aggressive schedules.
The WorleyParsons HVPD approach aims to:
- Reduce onsite construction work-scope and man-hours and hence reduce the duration required for onsite construction (minimizing the exposure to site weather delays and improving the certainty of achieving schedule)
- Significantly reduce the onsite plot plan footprint through efficient modularization
- Minimize the onsite commissioning scope and minimize disruption to existing operations in brown-field environments
- Broaden the pool of contractors who can execute the smaller sized onsite construction scope
- Improve quality by shifting a significant quantity of construction scope to fabrication/assembly shops with more readily achieved quality control.
