Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has started the construction of the Peregrino II jacket with the steel cutting ceremony at its Vlissingen yard in The Netherlands.

The company secured the construction contract for the Peregrino II jacket by South Atlantic Holding, on behalf of Statoil in May 2017.

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).

According to HFG’s previous update, the jacket needs to be ready for sail away in October 2019.

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.

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.

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