Swiber Delivers Installation Project Off South America
Swiber Holdings has completed a multi-million dollar platform and subsea pipeline installation project in South America.
The project, awarded in September 2013, by an oil and gas company in South America, was for the jacket and topside installation of a wellhead platform and its 24” and 4” pipelines of 70 kilometres each.
According to the company, the platform is considered to be the world’s southernmost platform project.
The scope of work included transportation and installation of the platform as well as two subsea pipelines spanning 70 kilometres each.
The offshore platform structures and line pipes for the project were transported from Spain and France by cargo barges on a dry tow vessel and by bulk carriers.
Swiber’s deputy CEO and president Darren Yeo, said: “The completion of the offshore platform and pipeline project has again proven Swiber’s strong capability in delivering our projects to specifications, safely and in a timely and cost-efficient manner in various regions of the world, and amid demanding weather conditions.
“We demonstrated our ability to bring together vessels and subcontractors from different parts of the world to this remote offshore location which required meticulous planning, flawless logistics, comprehensive safety management, and a top class project management team to ensure its success.”
