Carmagen's difference

Client focused. Client responsive.

That's our point of view and our point of difference. Our consultants average over 30 years of experience, many of those years spent primarily in the central engineering groups of major oil & gas owner companies. This provides an unmatched 'owner orientation' frame of reference. And with Carmagen there's minimal red tape, enabling us to mobilize quickly and respond to any situation virtually anywhere around the globe. Promise of Excellence.

Carmagen's difference

Offering more services. Delivering better solutions.

When you exceed a client's needs and their expectations something happens: they challenge you to do more, and as a result, you grow to meet those challenges. We've responded with a greater range of engineering consulting and project management services provided by an outstanding team of experienced oil & gas and related energy industry professionals. That's our formula… and the 'not-so-secret' to our success. Engineering Services.

 

Recent Work Highlights

Performed fitness-for-service assessment (including FEA) of a high pressure amine scrubber column that had experienced HIC cracking.  Concluded that the damaged areas did not meet API 579 / ASME FFS-1 Part 7 Level 1 acceptance rules, and reocmmended that further analysis and a risk assessment be made to determine appropriate actions.

Made stress calculations of steam reformer heater outlet pigtails that had incurred creep rupture damage in multiple cases after less than three years of operation.  Concluded that pigtail stresses likely exceeded the material creep rupture limit for 100,000 hours.  This was due to exposure to temperatures higher than anticipated, rapid temperature changes during heater shutdown and startup, mechanical loads higher than anticipated, and/or thinner than required pigtail wall thickness.

Rerate calculations made for a 40+ year above ground atmospheric storage tank due to large increase in required design temperature.  Found that the tank would not meet API-650 design requirements due to current wind and/or earthquake design load considerations, and that anchoring may be necessary.

Team Services

More Services. More Solutions.

Exceed client needs and expectations and two things happen: they challenge you to do more, and you grow to meet those challenges. In the last twenty years we’ve been more than up to the task. Which explains our success and how we’ve been able to expand our expertise and services to also include the Power Generation, Electrical Power, and Pharmaceutical Industries.

Cost effective. Up-to-speed readiness. Two more ways you benefit. No wasted time and no wasted financial resources. The significant breadth and depth of our consultants see to that. It means high value-added outcomes regardless of the solution, situation or need.

And because we view every client as a partner, we look for ways to empower them in establishing or improving their own internal base of expertise and self-sufficiency, with us always at the ready to support them with the full resources of Carmagen.
