Jumbo signed a Contract with Subsea 7 for the provision of the floating production, storage and offloading vessel mooring piles and ground chains installation for Dana Petroleum's Western Isles Development Project (WIDP).
Installation of the mooring piles and chains will be done by Jumbo’s Fairplayer, a dynamically positioned heavy lift vessel with 2 x 900-ton revolving deepwater cranes.
The offshore installation works are anticipated to commence in July/August 2014.
With the current Ithaca Stella mooring project already in preparation, the Fairplayer will execute Western Isles this summer in a continuous offshore North Sea campaign.
Western Isles Development Project (WIDP)
The Dana-operated Western Isles field is in the UK northern North Sea, Block 210/24a, about 90 km north-east of Shetland.
The water depth at site is about 160m. The WIDP will be developed using subsea wells tied back to a centrally located FPSO. Oil will be exported by shuttle tanker and gas will be exported through a dedicated pipeline to the existing Tern platform.
Dana’s WIDP partner is Cieco. First oil production is expected in Q3, 2015.
