Ocean Installer Catches Al Jurf SURF
- Business & Finance
Ocean Installer has been awarded a SURF project at the Al Jurf oil field in the Mediterranean.
The Al Jurf oil field is located about 150 km northwest off the coast of Tripoli, Libya, at a water depth of approximately 80-90 meters. The field is operated by Mabruk Oil Operations, a joint venture (JV) between Total E&P and the National Oil Cooperation (NOC) of Libya.
The work scope encompasses the replacement of a 10” flexible flowline between a fixed drilling and production platform and a floating, production, storage & offloading unit, the Farwha FPSO.
“We are very happy with this award and the opportunity to continue to develop our solid working relationship with Total E&P, or as in this case a Total E&P Joint Venture, further. The award also contributes to strengthen our foothold in the Mediterranean, proving our strategy of continued geographical expansion successful,” says Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.
The project will be managed from Ocean Installer’s Stavanger and Aberdeen offices in cooperation with Mabruk Oil Operations and onshore engineering will commence with immediate effect. Mobilisation and offshore operations are scheduled for Q3-Q4 2017.
