Balltec Connectors Deliver Malikai Job

Balltec has recently completed the disconnection of its MoorLOK subsea mooring connectors on behalf of EMAS Offshore on the Shell Malikai oil field off Sabah, Malaysia.

The connectors, rated to 615 mT MBL, were originally supplied in 2015 to Technip MMHE Joint Venture and used for temporary mooring of the Tender Assisted Drilling (TAD) vessel which has now completed drilling operations.

Balltec’s MoorLOK connector was originally selected due to its ease of dis-connection after prolonged subsea installation and this was highlighted during the successful offshore campaign that was completed in March of this year, the company noted.

Once the connectors had been returned to shore in Labuan, Malaysia, they were inspected and prepared for long term storage by Balltec’s technicians.
