Deep Panuke offshore Canada close to start-up
SBM says commissioning is under way on the new mobile offshore production unit serving EnCana’s Deep Panuke project offshore Nova Scotia.
Production is expected to start before end-June.
Elsewhere, SBM’sFPSOCidade de Paraty departed the BrasFELS shipyard in Brazil in mid-April following mechanical completion. The vessel is now secured to anchor lines at the Petrobras-operated field offshore.
Once the subsea risers and umbilicals have been connected, testing with hydrocarbons can start as the final stage prior to systems acceptance. At that point, the vessel will be officially on hire.
