2H said on Tuesday that the company was responsible for the concept, detailed design, transportation and installation of a platform on the D28 oilfield Phase 1 project for OceanMight on behalf of Petronas Carigali.

The design has a lightweight substructure that is supported by the conductors and a lightweight topside that was installed after drilling and completion. Both components were installed using a jack-up drilling rig, which offered substantial time and cost savings.

According to the company, this is the first platform of its kind to be installed using a jack-up drilling rig for Petronas in Malaysia.

2H added that the project execution and completion were achieved within seven months of the project award.

Shreenaath Natarajan, 2H Offshore director and project manager, said: “This project demonstrates once again that 2H Offshore’s unique, holistic concept-to-installation approach to minimum facility platforms offers significant value to operators.

“Collaborating with a local offshore facilities construction yard and using a jack-up drilling rig for installation provided significant cost savings in a challenging climate.”

This project marks the fourth successful conductor-supported platform installation using a jack-up rig in Malaysian waters by 2H Offshore’s Kuala Lumpur office. Work on five further wellhead platforms is currently in progress.

To remind, OceanMight was awarded a contract by Petronas Carigali in April 2018 for an engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of wellhead platforms for D18 Phases 1 and 2.
