Heerema to Build Peregrino II Jacket

Heerema Fabrication Group has received a procurement and construction contract for the Peregrino II jacket by South Atlantic Holding, on behalf of Statoil.

The Peregrino jacket will be approximately 135 meters tall, with a footprint of 66 x 53 meters and will weigh 9,300 tonnes (excluding the 12 piles).

Construction is due to start in November 2017 at the Heerema yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, in order to be ready for sail away in October 2019, the company informed.

Primary function of the jacket is the foundation for the topside including the drilling and process facilities, utilities, power generation, living quarters and a helideck with a design operational weight of 25,000 tonnes.

The jacket is also designed for storage of fresh drill water with caissons for submerged pumps connected to such storage tanks.

Phase II will enhance production from the Peregrino field by increasing the number of production wells with a total of 21 – 15 oil producers and 6 water injectors – to be drilled from WHP-C.

The start of the production of Phase II is expected by the end of 2020 and the estimated recoverable resources from this development until the end of 2040, when the concession period will end, are 250 million barrels.

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group, said: “We are delighted that we have been able to secure this contract. We are pleased that Statoil still has confidence in the expertise and skills of our company despite the announced reorganization.

The Peregrino field is situated in the South and South West section of the Campos Basin, approximately 85 kilometers of the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Statoil is the operator of the field, which is presently developed with two wellhead platforms and a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO).
