Hurricane Set for Lancaster EPS Subsea Installation Ops

Hurricane Energy informed that Bluewater Energy Services and DNV GL have completed the review of a boulder relocation campaign conducted for the Lancaster Early Production System (EPS) development, located on the UKCS Blocks 205/21a, 205/22a and 205/26b.

In order to reduce 2018 installation and execution risk, Hurricane instructed TechnipFMC to accelerate the planned Q2 2018 boulder relocation programme into 2017. Site surveys had identified boulders in the vicinity of the proposed locations for Lancaster EPS subsea infrastructure, which required relocating.

To undertake the work programme, TechnipFMC contracted the ‘Far Superior’ vessel and completed the planned work scope in November 2017.

The companies have now concluded that the boulder relocation campaign has resulted in an acceptable seabed condition for the installation of the mooring system. They also confirmed that a further dedicated boulder relocation programme is not required prior to start up of subsea installation operations in Q2-Q3 2018.

Dr Robert Trice, chief executive, said: “I am pleased that the boulder relocation works completed in 2017 are sufficient to allow us to continue with our 2018 operations without the requirement for another dedicated boulder relocation programme. This positive news further de-risks our installation programme and brings us closer to our planned first oil date.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bluewater for their timely review and our continued constructive working relationship.”
