Jack/St. Malo hull leaves shipyard

Offshore staff

BREDA, The Netherlands – The semisubmersible hull for Chevron’s Jack/St. Malo deepwater Gulf of Mexico project has sailed out of the Samsung Heavy Industries yard in Geoje, South Korea, bound for the Kiewit yard in south Texas.

At 56,000 metric tons (61,730 tons), the hull is the world’s largest to date, said marine contractor Dockwise. The successful float-on operation was the first for the company’s new Dockwise Vanguard heavy transport vessel. The hull is scheduled to arrive at the Kiewit yard mid-April.

The Jack and St. Malo floating production unit will be installed in 7,000 ft (2,100 m) water depths. The $7.5 billion development will comprise three subsea centers tied back to the FPU with a capacity of 170,000bo/d and 42.5MMcf/d of natural gas. Startup is planned for 2014.
