Heerema Fabrication Group has won the procurement and construction contract of the Peregrino II jacket by South Atlantic Holding BV on behalf of the Statoil Peregrino II project.

The Peregrino jacket will be approximately 135m tall, have a footprint of 66m x 53m and will weigh 9300-tonne (excluding the 12 piles).

Construction is due to start in November 2017 at the Heerema yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, in order to be ready for sailaway 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-tonne. 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, consisting of 15 oil producers and six water injectors, to be drilled from WHP-C. The water depth is approximately 120m. 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, when the concession period will end, are 250 MMbbl.

The Peregrino field, discovered in 1994, is a heavy oil field, situated in the south and southwest section of the Campos Basin, approximately 85km of the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Statoil is the operator of the Peregrino field, which is presently developed with two wellhead platforms and a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO). A system of pipelines, risers and cables connects this FPSO and the two wellhead platforms. The Peregrino Phase II Field Development will add a third wellhead platform, as this area is not accessible by the existing two platforms. It contains an eight-legged jacket and a wellhead platform with a drilling unit (WHP-C) tied-back to the existing FPSO.
