Dockwise delivers flowlines and umbilicals to Technip

Projects and Operations - August 1, 2008

heavy lift specialist Dockwise says logistical flexibility were the keywords in the recent delivery of flexible flowline and umbilical reels to Technipís/Subsea 7's offshore construction vessel CSO Venturer.

Six 300 ton flexible flowline reels from Kalundborg in Denmark, and two somewhat lighter umbilical reels from Sattahip in Thailand had to be lifted 'ship to ship' onto CSO Venturer in the port of Singapore.

The flowlines and umbilicals were needed for the hook-up operation of a FPSO in the Woolybutt south oilfield.
 
Originally, Jumboís heavy lift vessel Daniella was due to transfer the reels to CSO Venturer in Singapore but as CSO Venturerís installation activities on her current project offshore Dampier were delayed, this proved to be impossible.

Fortunately Jumbo was able to offer the client an alternative. Daniella was held on standby in Singapore and sailed to Dampier on call of Technip some weeks later, when CSO Venturer was able to receive the equipment.

The reels were carefully positioned on deck of the offshore construction vessel in May 2008 and valuable time for the project was regained.
