Acta Marine Supports Zohr Pipe Lay Ops

Acta Marine’s DP Multicats have been called up for duties on the Zohr natural gas project in Egyptian waters for the second year running.

The ultra-shallow draft vessels, Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger, will be supporting shore-end pipe lay installation activities.

We have four pipe pulling operations planned for the coming months – all taking place in extremely shallow waters,” says Acta Marine’s project manager Sinclair McWilliam. “However, these two DP Multicats can work in waters as shallow as 1.5 metres.”

Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger will also be deployed in anchor handling and logistics support duties.

In addition, equipped with a mass flow burial tool, they will also be carrying out seabed leveling.

The Zohr gas field was discovered by Eni in August 2015 and is estimated to have a total potential of up to 30 trillion cubic feet of gas in place.

The field is operated by Eni, through its joint venture with The Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), and is the largest natural gas discovery yet to be made in the Mediterranean Sea.
