SINGAPOREAqualis Offshore has completed the floatover installation of the REGAS topsides offshore Bahrain.

GS E&C contracted the company to provide engineering and supervision services related to the loadout, transport, and floatover of the topsides for theBahrain LNG import terminal project.

The 7,000-metric ton (7,716-ton) topsides was mated to the pre-installed 1,800-metric ton (1,984-ton) steel jacket in 17 m (56 ft) water depth, 4 km (2.5 mi) offshore Bahrain, under a program managed by APMC.

Aqualis also engineered and supervised installation of the jacket this May, along with the prior load-out of the jacket at South Korea and the voyage transport to Bahrain.

The topsides, which was fabricated in Thailand, had been loaded onto theGiant 5 barge for subsequent transfer onto the semisubmersible vessel Zhenhua 15 for ‘piggyback’ transport to Bahrain.

Installation of the topsides was completed following the barge offload operation in Bahrain.
