Officially named in February, the Terra Nova FPSO is the first of its kind, designed specifically for the harsh environmental conditions offshore Newfoundland. Onceberthed at the Bull Arm site, it will undergo seven months of hook-up andcommissioning work prior to its journey offshore to begin producing oil from theTerra Nova oil field. By the timethe vessel arrives all the topsides modules and the upper turret will be in Bull Arm, and we’ll begin the next phase of the development – topsides hook up andcommissioning. We are looking forward to the day when the Terra Nova FPSO, once installed offshore, will start production of the second major oil field off Newfoundland and Labrador, further establishing the oil and gas industry here”. It is designed with a productioncapacity of up to , barrels of oil per day, and a storage capacity of , barrels. Over the summer and autumn, the FPSO vessel will undergo hook up and commissioning, in preparation for the planned voyage to the Terra Nova field toward the end of the year. The accommodation module was included in the vessel fabrication scope. The Terra Nova owners are: The Alliance consists of: Discovered in , Terra Nova is thesecond largest oil field off Canada’s East Coast, with estimated recoverablereserves of 3 70 million barrels of oil.

Sonsub Division contract to perform positioning and heading control for the hook-up operations of a new floating production, storage and offloading FPSO unit in a depth of m in the Aquila field, Adriatic Sea, Italy. Initiated in August , the agreement included carrying out FPSO positioning and heading control analyses; analyzing optimized anchor handling scenarios for the FPSO mooring hook-up; and producing marine and survey procedures.

InterMoor also procured the FPSO aft and forward towing equipment and provided tow masters and surveyors for the offshore operation. Aquila Field was developed in March ; 50 kilometers northeast of Brindisi, Italy, in international waters within the continental shelf. In , the old FPSO hull was inspected and proven to be unfit for further use. A shuttle tanker then moored up to the FPSO and the contents were discharged accordingly.

The area lies miles kilometers offshore Australia in to feet to meters of water. In , Ichthys was discovered by three exploration wells, and then appraised by five wells three years later. On March 27, , the partners reported that the field is commercially viable, and then submitted the field development plan for government approval. Field Development The development plan for Located on Block WA P, Ichthys is one of Australia’s biggest undeveloped gas projects estimated to contain recoverable reserves of Field Development The development plan for Ichthys includes several subsea wells tied-back to a central floating offshore processing facility for gas, and an FPSO for condensate.

Clough was contracted by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to provide hook-up services on the Ichthys LNG Project Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility. The scope of work includes the preparation and execution of offshore hook-up .

UK operators are therefore revisiting their more marginal or problematic discoveries for potential development as a means of pro-longing UK production levels. The majority of these discoveries, some dating back to the s, have remained on the shelf due to a combination of technical risk, variable oil prices, and fiscal uncertainty.

Shell Expro’s Penguin Cluster in the Northern North Sea was a textbook case – a cluster of five fields collectively containing the third largest undeveloped accumulation of hydrocarbons on the UK continental shelf, behind the Clair and Bressay fields. Previous development of the Penguins had been precluded due to the large areal footprint of the cluster strung out over some 20 km and high subsurface risks reservoir connectivity and quality.

When at last a development opportunity was matured in the late s, the project had to be suspended due to the plunging oil price. Last year, however, the timing was finally right to move the scheme forward, 26 years after the initial discovery. This is roughly the same size as Shell Expro’s Brent field to the south, still one of the UK’s largest in terms of remaining reserves. If all goes according to plan, up to nine subsea wells could be drilled from five drill centers across the fields, exporting their wellstream through a km pipeline to the Brent C platform, shadowed by a similar length control umbilical.

On arrival at the platform, the fluids will be commingled with those from Brent and separated. Oil will then be sent through the Cormorant pipeline system to the Sullom Voe terminal on Shetland.

Gulf of Mexico FPSO enhanced by Intermoor’s chain tensioning and cutting

In the Gulf of Mexico, the technical and economical limitations inherent to other type of concepts, the lack of pipeline infrastructure in such deep areas, and the wide acceptance of the FPSO concept by Shelf Authorities will accelerate this process. One of the most critical issues in the design of FPSOs for ultra deep waters will be the selection of the most cost-efficient station keeping system for the specified operational requirements. Standard solutions based on internal turret and thruster assisted mooring systems are already being offered by the industry.

Operator Update A recent study conducted by OGX on the three producing wells at its Tubarao Azul field revealed that there is no way to economically increase the life of the field using current technology and that the existing wells could cease to produce by Unexpected behavior in the producing wells caused OGX to undertake the study which included reprocessing and reinterpretation of the existing geological and geophysical data. As a result, a new reservoir model was developed that revealed intense compartmentalization and discontinuity of the reservoirs.

OGX plans to submit a motion to Brazil’s ANP to suspend development of the remaining Tubarao fields with the exception of Tubarao Martelo which will proceed with development as planned. First production for Tubarao Martelo remains on track for 4Q The well is now flowing at an effective production rate after progressing through the initial clean-up phase.
