Fire Suppression System Testing at IOR Energy

Our skilled Rope Access Technicians were called in to the IOR Energy’s facility at Port of Brisbane in order to test the Fire Suppression System which forms a critical safety system atop a giant crude oil reservoir. The system requires testing every three years, and our techs utilised a fall protection system to access and test each element of the system.

About IOR Lytton Terminal

The Crude Oil Receiving Facility at Lytton in the Port of Brisbane is operated by IOR on behalf of its Lytton Joint Venture owners. The Lytton Joint Venture consists of IOR Terminals Pty Ltd, Beach Energy Limited and Mosaic Oil & Gas NL.

The terminal provides access to market for the onshore oil producers of the Surat and Cooper Basins. Crude oil arrives by tanker truck at the Lytton Terminal where it is unloaded and automatically sampled and metered before transfer to a 50ML floating roof tank where it is stored pending later sale and transfer to a local refinery. The 50ML tank is also used to store crude oil discharged directly from vessels at the oil berth in the Brisbane River under a shared operating agreement with a local refinery.

The delivery of the course was perfect for me and incorporated techniques that encouraged us to participate. The success of the course lies in part with the trainer/presenter. Raymond was exceptional in the way he delivered the material as well as the way he addressed us. His passion for health and safety was evident throughout the course and helped me develop an appreciation for the standards. His knowledge was second to none, and well worth the course fees I paid. I can honestly say that I gained more out of the course than what I paid for. I would happily recommend anyone for his course.
