A short video to show the export cable pull in at the Burbo Bank Offshore Windfarm extension. There were some considerable engineering challenges to enable the team to get the cable installed safely. The cable was floated ashore on pillow floats to a small jack up barge then pulled through the tidal and connected to a winch for the final 760 metre pull through a HDD that had been installed 12 months ago. A great achievement for all involved!
With the Ichthys LNG Project Gas Export Pipeline, Semac 1, Castorone and Saipem FDS completed 882 km of 42” gas export offshore pipeline to transfer gas to the LNG process plant in Darwin, Australia. At peak production, the pipelay rate exceeded 4.4 km/day.
In June 2016, VBMS completed the installion of a 26.5 km export cable for the Nordergründe offshore wind farm. We have captured the pull-in of the cable - through the BSS-II - to the onshore substation in a two minute time-lapse.
PEFLEX is a cable protection system, manufactured by Pipeline Engineering, used to protect freespan array and export cables on offshore wind farms. Using PEFLEX allows diver-less and ROV-less installation. The PEFLEX design combines a series of interlocking polyurethane vertebrae half sections interspersed with elastomeric sleeves. PEFLEX is positioned at the subsea entry of cables on J-Tube or J-Tubeless connections. Once attached, PEFLEX limits the bending of cables by locking when the minimum bend radius is reached".
In December 2016, VBMS completed the installation of two 16 kilometre-long 150kV HVAC cables for the Rampion offshore wind farm situated off the coast of Worthing, UK. To overcome some environmental challenges in this very shallow water, VBMS had to extend the pre-installed landfall HDD’s with duct extensions of approx. 480 metres each. VBMS utilised Boskalis’ backhoe dredger Manu Pekka to dredge the trenches before installing the duct extensions. In addition, Boskalis dredged three flotation pits per cable routing to allow CLV Stemat Spirit to reach the location of the end of the ducts. Following the cable pull-in CLV Stemat Spirit jumped from pit to pit during high tides while laying the cable until it reached deeper water where it could safely remain afloat and resume the remaining cabl...
In August 2016, VBMS executed the first export cable shore landing for the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm utilising its newly invented method for lowering the cable onto the seabed without the use of divers, wet riggers or support vessels. By using a remotely controlled progressive buoyancy release system, VBMS is able to increase safety and efficiency by eliminating time-consuming interfaces. For more information contact vbms.com
On behalf of our client Ferguson Modular Ltd we manage and operate a 100m accommodation/work barge which has high-specification accommodation for up to 220 persons and a free deck area of 1,100 m2. The barge is suitable for a range of uses in the offshore oil and gas and renewables industries where the barge's deck and accommodation facilities can be utilised. The barge has been used for laying an export cable at an offshore wind farm and providing support for diving and grouting operations as well as accommodation and catering at the "Costa Concordia" recovery project in Italy.
Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO), is a pioneering oil and gas producer whose operations date back to the 1950s, and are centred in the offshore areas of Abu Dhabi. Oil and gas production comes from two major fields Umm Shaif and Zakum. The crude is collected from these fields using giant steel structures called supercomplexes, and then transferred to Das Island, a nearby industrial base, for processing, storing and world export. The first oil discovery in Abu Dhabi was made in 1958 in Umm Shaif and the first oil shipment exported from Abu Dhabi to the world market came out on July 4th, 1962 from the same field. Over the years, the Company adopted the latest in drilling techniques and technologies, starting with vertical, then deviated and ultimately horizontal drilling. The...

What is CLOV? It is how the 4th development of the Block 17 was named, it is a deep offshore development run by Total near the Angolan sea. CLOV stands for the 4 oil fields’names (Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta) which are 381km² lenght (around 3 times the size of Paris). The project was launched in 2010 (passing contractors with the subcontractors in charge of the manufacturing and the establishment). Underwater equipment for the production and storage platform were manufactured a few month after and it was in June 2014 that CLOV has begun its production. A production which will, at least, last 20 years. CLOV is designed to export all the gas to a liquefaction plant onshore in Angola. This “Zero Fla
"Offshore geotechnical engineering" is a sub-field of geotechnical engineering. It is concerned with foundation design, construction, maintenance and decommissioning for human-made structures in the sea. Oil platforms, artificial islands and submarine pipelines are examples of such structures. The seabed has to be able to withstand the weight of these structures and the applied loads. Geohazards must also be taken into account. The need for offshore developments stems from a gradual depletion of hydrocarbon reserves onshore or near the coastlines, as new fields are being developed at greater distances offshore and in deeper water, with a corresponding adaptation of the offshore site investigations. Today, there are more than 7,000 offshore platforms operating at a water depth up to and ex...
