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).

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.
