EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands -- Lifting specialist FG International Holland, working with local partner CR Asia, has replaced a riser hose connected to PTTEP’s Arthit/Bongkot facilities offshore Thailand.

FG says a triple redundancy solution was devised to ensure that the exercise was completed with minimal interruption to production.

The company first installed a special lifting construction under the external turret of the FSO Pathamabaha. With the new hose then pre-installed close to its final location, disconnection and reconnection was enacted within 20 minutes.
