FSO Ailsa’s hull touches water for the first time

Danish oil firm Maersk Oil has shared a photo on its social media channels showing its Culzean field-destined Ailsa floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessel in the water for the first time.
The company said on Monday that the FSO had undocked on schedule, which is another step towards the Ailsa leaving Singapore and beginning its journey to the North Sea in 2018.

Maersk added that, since the FSO is now afloat, the focus has moved to finishing off the turret and topside sections aiming for mechanical completion at year-end.

The vessel, when fully completed, will be 243 meters long which is, according to Maersk, longer than three Airbus A380s, the world’s largest passenger plane. The vessel’s highest point, at 52 meters, will be taller than Nelson’s Column in London and the vessel will be able to store the equivalent of over 430,000 barrels of oil.
“It’s a significant milestone for the project,” says Claus Vissing-Jorgensen, Deputy Project Director and Facilities Manager. “It marks a major step towards readying the FSO to leave Singapore next year and travel to the North Sea. I’d like to congratulate the team on this success. It’s especially great to see a mega-project such as ours consistently hitting milestones on target. It definitely couldn’t be done without a strong and talented team, and that is what we have.”
Lars Banke, site and interface manager, said: “Construction of the FSO has been spread across six different yards in Singapore and Indonesia so it’s been a real challenge to make sure everything stays in sync and on track.”
Steve Michie, FSO and subsea manager, added: “The team will next be working on installing the turret which is a pivotal piece of the mooring system and also the FSO topsides, key to processing the condensate when on board. At the same time, we’re preparing for our two month tow from Singapore to the UK North Sea waters and the subsequent offshore commissioning campaign.”

Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine cut first steel for the Ailsa FSO vessel on July 22, 2016. After it begins work on the Culzean field, the FSO will remain in service until at least 2033.
As far as the field goes, Culzean is a high-pressure/ high-temperature field in the UK North Sea developed using three bridge-linked platforms: a wellhead platform where drilling and production takes place; a central processing platform where the produced gas and condensate are processed and exported; and utilities and living quarters, providing accommodation, living space, and services for the crew.

The installation of central processing facilities (CPF) and the utilities and living quarters (ULQ) jackets was completed on July 20, while the wellhead platform (WHP) jacket was installed last year. All three jackets were built by Heerema and installed using the Heerema Marine operated crane vessel; the Thialf.
Gas will be exported to the CATS pipeline, coming onshore at Teeside, with condensate exported via a short pipeline to the FSO vessel for offloading onto a tanker.

COSCO Dalian Shipyard delivers new deep subsea support vessel to Maersk Supply Service.

Chinese COSCO Dalian Shipyard has delivered a new deep subsea support vessel to the Danish shipowner, Maersk Supply Service.
The new vessel, named Maersk Installer, is 11 meters high, 27 meters wide and 137 meters long. The delivery documents were signed by the builder and the vessel owner on Monday, October 16.
maersk1.jpg (110.39 KiB) 654 keer bekeken
This is the first out of four Stingray subsea support vessels to be delivered by the Chinese builder to the Danish shipowner.

The delivery dates for the vessels were postponed in mid-2017 due to the current market situation with new dates ranging from summer 2017 to spring 2018.

The Stingray class SSVs was designed together with Marin Teknikk as a flexible platform to carry out a wide range of deep and shallow water operations in challenging offshore environments. These DP 3 vessels feature a 400 t active heave compensated crane and 2 work class ROV’s capable of operating in up to 3,000 m water depth.

The 1,925 m2 free deck is designed with hundreds of non-welding, sea fastening features and cofferdams are built in above all tanks to ensure flexibility for client operations. The accommodation features 120 modern single cabins to meet increased comfort level requirements.

Back in July, Maersk Supply secured a contract with Subtec S.A de C.V. of Mexico, a subsidiary of Blue Marine Group, for one of its Stingray vessels. The Stingray vessel will be operating in the Bay of Campeche performing general support duties, including IRM and maintenance of Pemex’s platforms as well as enhancement and well stimulation. The contract will start in autumn 2018 with a firm duration until June 2020.

OOS Energy reveals game-changing Multi Activity Unit

OOS Energy, an affiliated company of Holding OOS International Group B.V., has revealed its game-changing vessel.
The Multi-Activity Unit (MAU) is a newly designed self-propelled, dynamically positioned jack-up capable of performing a wide range of services.
os1.jpg (79.48 KiB) 441 keer bekeken
The unit is equipped with a high-efficiency Plug & Abandonment (P&A) package able to perform well intervention/workover, drilling operations and performing activities simultaneous on multiple wells.

The unit is further equipped with a large accommodation and 2 x 1200MT cranes, which supports in removing the majority of platforms in the Southern North Sea or other areas in the world with water depths up to 80 meters.
os2.jpg (107.19 KiB) 441 keer bekeken
In addition, with this unit OOS Energy is able to transport and offload removed structures without the support of other vessels or heavy lift equipment. Its design and lifting capability provides an immense efficiency that can also be used in the offshore wind energy sector for installation of monopiles, jackets and turbines.
During the design OOS Energy, in cooperation with the vessel designer, ensured that for all operations the capability of the unit is maximized while keeping the size within limits.

“The strength of our concept is SIMOPS (simultaneous operations); combining P&A with heavy lift operations up to 2,400T without the need of a marine spread or mobilizing multiple vessels is in our view a cost reducing exercise. The MAU will be available to all parties involved within the P&A/decommissioning and wind installation market. Discussions are well underway with potential clients recognizing the efficiency of this unit,” says Mr. Léon Overdulve, CEO of OOS International.
os3.jpg (79.83 KiB) 441 keer bekeken
OOS Energy is actively working on finalizing the equipment packages and in final discussions with shipyards for the construction of two units with an expected availability in Q4-2020 and Q1-2021.

The first unit is to be named Luctor et Emergo.

Wagenborg Offshore delivers second walk-to-work vessel in Southern North Sea

Wagenborg Offshore has been awarded a 6-year contract by Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) and SHELL UK Exploration & Production (Shell UK) for the provision of a second walk-to-work vessel. NAM and Shell UK work together in combined business unit on the gas production on the Southern North Sea. The vessel will support its offshore operations.
This long-term contract was signed November 13th by the directors of the companies. The so-called ‘Walk-to-Work Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel’ (W2W ERRV) will operate as a standby and support vessel for inspection and maintenance of the unmanned platforms in both Dutch and British waters.

Wagenborg chooses PX121 Ulstein design
For the provision of the W2W ERRV vessel to NAM and Shell UK, Wagenborg and Ulstein have signed an agreement for the delivery of a standard ‘PX121 Platform Supply Vessel’ (PSV). Built according the Ulstein Accommodation Standard, the PX121 has gained excellent feedback from the offshore industry due to a favourable combination of fuel-efficiency and load capacity. The PX121 is particularly suited for a conversion to other types of services, such as walk-to-work or Emergency Response and Rescue, without comprising her outstanding Dynamic Positioning performance.

Economic boost for the North of Netherlands
On the Dutch shipyard Royal Niestern Sander in Delfzijl, approximately 80 employees will be working on the conversion of the PX121 from a PSV into a W2W ERRV vessel. The PX121 will be equipped a.o. with an additional accommodation module, motion compensated gangway and motion compensated crane to comply the requirements of NAM-Shell. The vessel will be converted in 16 weeks by Royal Niestern Sander and is expected to be delivered to Wagenborg Offshore March 2018. The vessel will start operations in Q1 2018.

Producing natural gas offshore
By producing natural gas offshore NAM and Shell UK face major challenges to execute offshore operations as safe and efficient as possible and increase the effectiveness of offshore maintenance activities to reduce costs. Modern offshore production platforms are smaller and normally unmanned without 'helicopter deck', resulting in a need for Walk-to-Work vessels. With Walk-to-Work vessels offshore activities can be supported more safe, efficient, effective and productive, as already proven by the successful Walk-to-Work vessel Kroonborg. The additional W2W ERRV vessel will be positioned in a similar way as Kroonborg and, in addition, will also comply with the ERRV (Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel) Class B guidelines.

General specifications: Length over all: 83.40 m. Breadth over all: 18.00 m Max. draught: 6.00 m
GT/NT: 3.600/1.268 t. Deck area: 840 m2. Speed: 15,8 kn
