Dutch offshore company Jumbo has been awarded the transportation and installation of a 410-tonne subsea production manifold at a depth of 1,643 metres off the coast of Israel for the Leviathan development.

UK-based Technip is preparing for a project including a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea wells to a fixed platform located approximately 10 kilometres offshore Israel.

Technip awarded Jumbo’s Offshore division with the contract to perform the task of lowering the manifold onto the seabed at a 1,643-metre water depth and installing various other SSIV’s and valve skids at a water depth of approximately 86 metres.

In addition to this, Jumbo will also transport various equipment from the US Gulf Coast to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Jumbo will appoint one of its DP-equipped offshore heavy lift construction vessels (HLCVs) to complete this project in early 2019.
