Hurricane Energy, the UK based oil and gas company, has completed the installation of the subsea umbilical, risers and flowlines (SURF) for the Early Production System development of the Lancaster Field (Lancaster EPS).
The installation marks the end of the offshore installation programme, the company noted.
The final activity at the field will be a programme of protective rock dumping, expected to take place in October.
The system is now complete and ready for the arrival of the Aoka Mizu FPSO. The works on the vessel in Dubai are in their final stages, with sea trials expected to start by the end of the month and sail away to follow shortly thereafter.
Dr Robert Trice, chief executive of Hurricane, said: “I’m pleased to report successful completion of subsea installation, the final element of the installation campaign scheduled for the 2018 summer weather window. The required infrastructure is now in place for the Aoka Mizu FPSO to hook-up and commence commissioning upon arrival. I look forward to first oil in 1H 2019.”
