Date of Project: July 2017
Location of project: Patterson Creek Facility, 75 KM SE of Grande Prairie, Alberta
Size: 6,000 ft2
Length of project: 5 days
Crew size: 3 technicians, 1 Foreman
Type of Structure: Secondary containment for (4) 750 bbl tanks, 60 pilings
Product Used: Raven 512 pure polyurea, desert sand coloured
Description of Application: Stray Cat supplied and built a zero ground disturbance steel containment system and applied a geotextile/polyurea liner. The substrate was uneven compacted dirt; Stray Cat laid out sand and raked to smoothen the ground, then laid out non-woven geotextile and coated with polyurea. All walls of the containment system were covered with geotextile and coated and clamped on top of the walls with a top cap. All pilings were blasted to a white finish or Nace #1/SSPC-SP5, then coated 1 foot from ground floor.
QA/QC Test Performed: Stray Cat monitored ambient conditions for humidity, dew point, temperatures, wind speeds, etc. before and during work each day. Daily QA/QC reports were completed and submitted to the client that included the products’ batch numbers and manufacture date, all environmental conditions, blast profile, etc. Stray Cat performed various thickness tests throughout the project to verify proper and uniform thickness.
Opinion of Project Owner – Product, Applicator Performance and Projected Future Use: Stray Cat had in the past done work for another major oil and gas company where the current Meritage superintendent had been employed. Because of the experience and quality of work on previous polyurea liners, Stray Cat was awarded the work with Meritage. The company has recently signed a Master Service Agreement with Stray Cat to install all their future liners.
