Jumbo Wins Leviathan Gig
Jumbo has been awarded the transportation and Installation of a 410t subsea production manifold at a depth of 1643 meters off the coast of Israel for the Leviathan development.
TechnipFMC is preparing for a project including a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea wells to a fixed platform located approximately 10 kilometers offshore Israel.
TechnipFMC awarded Jumbo’s Offshore division with the contract to perform the task of lowering the manifold onto the seabed at a 1643 meters water depth and installing various other SSIV’s and valve skids at a water depth of approximately 86 meters. In addition to this, Jumbo will also transport various equipment from US Gulf Coast to Eastern Mediterranean.
The Jumbo team will also provide reliable project management and engineering services for this scope of work, including attendance of HIRAs and review of TechnipFMC procedures and analyses.
“Jumbo will appoint one of its offshore heavy lift crane vessels (HLCVs) to complete this project in early 2019. By using one of our DP equipped heavy lift construction vessels with its combination of transport and deepwater installation capabilities, we can provide a unique solution for the transportation and installation aspects of this project.” Brian Boutkan, head of sales & business development Americas, Jumbo Offshore.
The Leviathan Field is located in the I/14 Leviathan North and I/14 Leviathan South leases, approximately 125 kilometers west of Haifa, Israel, and 35 kilometers west of the Tamar field in the eastern Mediterranean Levantine Basin.
