MDL Marine Services has successfully completed tranpooling of a flexible product for an independent UK exploration and production company, Spirit Energy.
The project was managed by MDL Project Engineering Team and entailed relocating the client’s product stored on a third-party storage reel from Denmark to MDL base in Peterhead, using MDL’s Reel Drive System, and onto an MDL-owned 8.6m installation reel.
Once set up and positioned in MDL’s yard, the team were supplemented by expert MDL Offshore Service team to transpool over 300m of product onto a newly-refurbished MDL 8.6m storage reel.
The complete execution included detailed method statement, storyboard drawings and the full MDL equipment spread in order to safely execute the transpooling over a 4-day period. Project efficiencies were maximized through using MDL RDS 400-02 as well as an MDL deck deflector.
The transpooling operation provided the client with further cost efficiencies in storage and readiness for mobilization, should the product be required for deployment in Spirit Energy’s North Sea field.
