Civil engineering in Oil, Gas and Petro-Chemicals
Civil engineering or CSA (Civil Structural Architecture) plays a central role in projects in the chemical and petrochemical plant construction and the oil and gas industry. It covers several disciplines, including structural design, statics, as well as foundation design in solid and steel construction.
Civil engineering requires a certain amount of on site presence to check the plausibility of the design. In addition, the preparation of measurements and cooperation with the pipeline planning department is necessary. This involves compliance with standards, the client's specifications and the fulfilment of building law requirements. In order to obtain the building permit the installation plans, including statics checked by the structural engineer, are submitted to the building authority. The Civil division works with the tools R-Stab, Frilo, Microstation, Tekla or FEM.
