Kraken on Track for First Oil in Q2 as FPSO Arrives to Field

Kraken floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel has arrived at its field location in the UK North Sea on Monday, February 13.

The hook up of the submerged turret production (STP) buoy mooring system to the FPSO was completed on February 15, and a full rotation test performed so that the vessel is now on station and securely moored, EnQuest informed.

Commissioning work on the topsides are also underway.

Reconstruction of the turret area pipework and connection of the risers and umbilicals to the swivel stack is being undertaken followed by commissioning of the subsea infrastructure.

According to EnQuest, the operator of the field, the delivery of first oil in Q2 2017 is on track.

Kraken, located in the East Shetland basin approximately 125 km east of the Shetland Islands, has an anticipated production life of up to 25 years.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
