Aqualis completes Bahrain LNG topsides floatover
Aqualis Offshore has completed the floatover installation of the regasification topside offshore Bahrain as part of the Bahrain LNG import terminal.
Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed energy consultancy group Aqualis was contracted by GS E&C to provide engineering and supervision services related to the loadout, transport and floatover of the topside, the company said in its statement.
The 7,000 tons topside was mated with the 1,800 tons steel jacket in 17 meters water depth, 4 kilometers offshore Bahrain.
Aqualis Offshore engineered and managed the jacket installation in May 2018.
The topside was fabricated in Thailand and loaded out onto the Giant 5 barge prior to loading the barge onto Zhenhua 15 semi-submersible vessel for piggyback transport to Bahrain.
The topside installation was completed following the barge offload in Bahrain.
