30 Apr Building a Better Bond: MegaMod is the Next Big Solution for Customers in the Oil and Gas Industry
What do you do when boomtown and processing location are hundreds of miles away? If you’re Fibrebond, you devise a solution that involves floating a building with a name reminiscent of the Transformers down the Red River.
It’s another example of how the business is looking to accommodate its customers’ needs.
With liquified natural gas exports booming along the Gulf Coast and the recent discovery of natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids in the Permian Basin, customers have been looking for the best way to power their processes.
MegaMod from Fibrebond gives them an option for single-piece building delivery, improving on previous iterations.
“The key difference between MultiMod and MegaMod is that it’s obviously a lot bigger,” said Chet Carpenter, Fibrebond’s Business Development Manager. “The other is the delivery method. These, obviously, once they’re put together, can’t go down the road. (With) a MultiMod, each module is small enough to get on a truck, go to a site, get pieced together there and then integrated.
“The MegaMod goes down the river, which is the only viable method of transportation once it gets this big, and ends up somewhere along the coast.”
Why go big? In Carpenter’s eyes, there are three reasons.
“There’s really a ton of benefit there with a building that shows up fully assembled as opposed to one that shows up with multiple pieces needing to be assembled on site, so I would say efficiency, quality and even safety are three major factors, there,” he said.
Not only does it keep on-site labor costs low, but it reduces the possibility for leaks and other issues that may pop up with multi-segment delivery.
There’s little doubt that MegaMod is a big solution for customers along the Gulf Coast.
