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.
