BATAM ISLAND, Indonesia – Premier Oil Natuna Sea has awarded PT SMOE Indonesia and PT Rajawali Swiber Cakrawala a $175-million construction contract for the Naga/Pelikan project offshore Indonesia.
This calls for engineering and construction of two wellhead platforms, two infield subsea pipelines, and modifications to an existing facility.
Each platform topside and jacket will weigh 480 and 900 metric tons (529 and 992 tons), respectively. The subsea pipelines will be 19 km/14 in. diameter (12 mi/35.6 cm) and 32 km/12 in. (20 mi/30.5 cm). Both will be tied to the existing central processing platform.
PT SMOE Indonesia’s scope, valued at around $63 million, involves engineering design, procurement, construction, offshore hook-up and commissioning of the two new platforms, and modifications to the existing facility. Construction should start next month.
PT Rajawali Swiber Cakrawala will engineer and lay the two subsea lines and will transport and install both platforms in 82 m (269 ft) water depth. Offshore operations are expected to be completed by September 2013.
