Jumbo installs moorings, pipeline for offshore Bangladesh LNG complex
Jumbo has completed installation of the mooring system for the Moheshkhali floating liquefied natural gas import terminal in the Bay of Bengal.
SCHIEDAM, the Netherlands – Jumbo has completed installation of the mooring system for the Moheshkhali floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal off Moheshkhali Island in the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh.
This is the country’s first LNG import terminal: it includes afloating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a subsea buoy system, and a subsea pipeline which connects the terminal to an onshore pipeline system.
Jumbo was contracted to transport and connect the mooring system for the FSRU. This involved installing eight suction piles/anchors, a pipeline end terminal and associated pad, as well as scouring protection.
Mobilization started last December with the installation execution under way in early January from the vessel Jumbo Javelin.
Tom Rijnders, Project Manager said conditions were difficult at times challenging due to strong currents and poor visibility.
