Total awarded 2H Offshore, an Acteon company, a contract concerning the TLP top tensioned riser (TTR) systems for the Moho Nord field development off Congo.
2H Offshore will be responsible for the riser delivery management, which includes design finalization, procurement management and inspection services for 17 production and water injection top tensioned risers and one high pressure drilling riser. The 2H Offshore Houston office will be responsible for this phase of the project. Previously, the company’s London office performed the initial detailed design in the second phase of the project on behalf of Doris Engineering.
The Moho Nord award follows the Big Foot TLP riser delivery contract that 2H kicked off for Chevron in 2011.
“2H’s riser integrator approach has worked very well on Big Foot and is being recognized as a good model for top tensioned riser systems where there are a multitude of interfaces driving riser design and procurement activities,” said Ricky Thethi, vice president of 2H Offshore Inc.
Located approximately 75km from Pointe-Noire and 25km west of N'Kossa in water depths ranging from 450m to 1200m, the Moho Nord project will target additional reserves in the southern part of the license and new reserves in the northern part. This is the third and final phase of the project for Total.
First oil on the Moho Nord development is expected by 3Q 2016.
