Australia SapuraKencana Provides Support Vessel for Montara Development Project

SapuraKencana Petroleum Berhad (“SapuraKencana”) announced that it has on 30 July 2012 received a contract award from PTTEP Australasia Pty Ltd (“PTTEP”) for the provision of the subsea support vessel “Normand Clough” to support the hook-up and commissioning activities of the Montara Development Project.

The contract is for the provision of the vessel and the vessel personnel, the operation, navigation and management of the vessel, and the operations or work to be performed using the “Normand Clough” and any other responsibilities and obligations imposed under the contract in respect of the Montara Development Project.

The Montara field is located approximately 700km west of Darwin in the Timor Sea, off the coast of Northern Australia.

Montara development comprises an unmanned four-legged well-head platform (WHP), four horizontal production wells, a single gas re-injection well, a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel and associated mooring system, flowlines, risers and control umbilical connecting the WHP to the FPSO.

The value of the contract amount with options exercised is approximately AUD$14.8 million (equivalent to RM50.0 million). The total duration of the Contract is approximately three months, commencing early October 2012 following the Normand Clough campaign in Sakhalin.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
