SINGAPORE – InterMoor, an Acteon company, has completed two offshore projects for China Offshore Oil Engineering Corp. (COOEC) in the Pearl River Mouth basin Panyu and Enping 24-2 fields of the South China Sea.
To extend the life of theHai Yang Shi You III FPSO, the first project involved full mooring system replacement in the Panyu field. InterMoor provided onshore and offshore project management; installation engineering, procedures and procurement; and key offshore personnel for the installation of nine suction pile anchors and preset moorings for the FPSO internal turret buoy system.
The permanent mooring system was installed in a water depth of 105 m (344 ft), and the FPSO remained connected and in service throughout the operation. Procedures were developed to allow the mooring components to be deployed less than 1.5 m (5 ft) from existing moorings, and to enable the PIV to work close to the FPSO and offtake tankers safely, with uninterrupted production throughout. InterMoor completed this offshore installation work in May.
The second project was the installation of a full single-point mooring system in the Enping 24-2 oil field, and this work was completed in August. InterMoor again provided onshore and offshore project management; installation engineering, procedures and procurement; and key offshore personnel for the project. InterMoor conducted the installation at the Enping field in water depths of 86 m (282 ft) to 96 m (315 ft).
Several Acteon sister companies were involved in both projects.Seatronics provided suction pump skids for the Panyu piles, and MENCK and LM Handling supplied the piling spread and associated handling tools. Engineering support for flexible installation was delivered by 2H Offshore, and Aquatic Asia Pacific was responsible for a modular drive system and tensioner solution to support the flowline and power cable installation.
