As a project progresses from the feasibility phase towards the project execution phase, more detailed project engineering, including process engineering, front-end engineering design (FEED) and detailed engineering is normally required in order to support the potential development of a proposed project.
At Parkway, we are able to provide clients with engineering support from the early process engineering phase, through to more advanced stages, including brownfield projects where the opportunity being evaluated may be less novel and represent more of a process improvement.

PROCESS & PROJECT ENGINEERING
At Parkway, our team of engineers is able to lead the development of key project engineering related activities, including the typical deliverables outlined below.
Process Engineering & FEED
Process design package comprising of process flow diagrams (PFD), mass and energy balance (M&EB), piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID), equipment datasheets/specifications, instrument datasheets, control philosophy, plot plans and layouts, hazardous area classification, hazard and operability analysis (HAZOP) and layer of protection analysis (LOPA).
Mechanical datasheets, engineering fabrication drawings, instrument specifications, programmable logic controller (PLC) / distributed control system (DCS), electrical specifications, piping isometrics, material take offs (MTO), civil and structural drawings, vendor engagement, enquiries, proposal evaluations as well as procurement related engagement.
The project development phase involves detailed planning through the development of a project execution plan (PEP) outlining how the proposed project is likely to proceed, upon a final investment decision (FID) being made. The specific tasks are outlined in a work breakdown structure (WBS), which is presented in a hierarchical structure, enabling the project to be managed in the methodical manner.
For greenfield projects, the PEP is typically focused on outlining a plan for implementing a robust and cost-effective solution for the client. The scope may start as early as the process development phase all the way through to detailed engineering including the finer details of mechanical design and project management.
Existing operations, particularly those that are several years old, often provide opportunities to re-evaluate a project in order to determine whether certain process enhancements, including the adoption of improved process equipment/technologies, may improve operational performance.
