EM&I lands work on ageing Stag

Asset integrity services provider EM&I has secured a new contract with Quadrant Energy for work on the ageing Stag platform, offshore Western Australia. 

The scope of work is to second an integrity engineer to manage the inspection requirements on Stag, from the Quadrant office, for an initial six-month period, EM&I said on Thursday.

In addition, EM&I will be supplying an offshore site based plant inspector on a rotational basis for at least six months.

Oil and gas company Jadestone Energy, formerly known as Mitra Energy, acquired the Stag oil field from Quadrant last November and engaged it as the previous operator to assist as Jadestone works to finalize its safety case.

Stephen Blair, General Manager Asia Pacific, commented “I see this as a significant opportunity for us to support Quadrant Energy to fulfill the remainder of their obligations for Stag in the short term and as a helpful lead into Jadestone, with a view to extending and expanding on the core services.

“When embedded, we will look to use this contract as an opportunity to offer some of our innovative methods of inspection such as WrapSight and PSI in particular.”

The Stag field is located in the Carnarvon basin 60km offshore Western Australia in a water depth of approximately 47 meters. The field has been developed with a conventional oil production platform, which has been in production since 1998.

The platform is connected to the Dampier Spirit floating storage and offtake (FSO) vessel. The Stag is currently producing an average of more than 3,400 barrels per day.
