MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore) has awarded Norway-based Havfram a contract for the pre-installation of the subsea mooring system for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) within this year.

Parent company MODEC will supply this facility to Woodside Energy for deployment in Senegal as part of the Sangomar Field Development Phase One project. This phase will target approximately 230 million barrels of crude oil.

Under the contract, Havfram will utilise its in-house expertise to project manage, engineer, store, and transport and install nine suction piles and corresponding mooring lines 100 kilometres from shore in approximately 780 metres water depth.

James Fisher Subtech has successfully completed a subsea inspection, repair, and maintenance (IRM) contract for Aberdeen-based North Sea oil and gas producer NEO Energy.

The works were carried out on NEO Energy’s FPSO vessel Global Producer III located in the Balloch field in the Central North Sea. JF Subtech utilised its air diving and ROV assets to undertake the operation on the FPSO’s hull.

JF Subtech helped ensure the FPSO’s thruster system’s continued operational capability and high performance to preserve safety and stability around the vessel’s turret mooring system during ongoing production activities within the harsh environmental conditions of the North Sea.

The scope of work included the removal of an existing thruster by lowering it through the FPSO’s hull, followed by subsea transfer and recovery to the deck of a dive support vessel (DSV), with the reverse process being implemented to install the replacement unit.

The works program also included the inspection and replacement of the starboard forward linear loop anode and reference electrode, part of the vessel’s impressed current cathodic protection system.
