Aqualis Offshore said it has completed the jacket installation engineering of a 1800T steel jacket structure offshore Bahrain as part of the Bahrain LNG import terminal.

Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, delivered the project in cooperation with APMC, who were in charge of the transportation and installation contract on behalf of its EPC contractor client, GS E&C.

Aqualis Offshore’s scope of work provided full engineering services related to the loadout, transportation and float off operation, towing, positioning, lowering to the seabed and buoyancy tank removal, including all marine procedures.

The offshore installation was executed in May 2018, Aqualis Offshore said without disclosing the contract value.

Buoyancy tanks were specifically engineered to allow the jacket structure to be floated-off the transport vessel, towed to the site and lowered to the seabed through ballasting, negating the need for the mobilization of any large installation crane vessel.

The Wish Wayheavy lift vessel was utilized to transport the jacket from Samkang M&T in Goseong Yard, South Korea to its destination at its final location offshore Bahrain at 20 meters water depth.

Aqualis Offshore managed the jacket installation project out of its Singapore office, the company said, adding that the associated topside floatover installation will be executed in August 2018.
