Deepwater mooring rope manufacturer Lankhorst Offshore announced Wednesday it has been awarded a contract by TechnipFMC to supply the mooring lines for the Energean Power floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) for the Karish and Tanin gas fields, located in the eastern Mediterranean, approximately 90 kilometers offshore Israel.

Energean Israel, as operator of the Karish and Tanin gas fields, will use the FPSO to process the reservoir fluids and export sales gas from these fields to the shore of Israel via a 90-kilometer pipeline.

The Energean Power FPSO will be spread moored using 14 mooring lines arranged in 2x4 and 2x3 clusters at 1,750 meters water depth. Lankhorst is supplying 28 rope lengths, arranged in two segments per line, totaling 43,400 meters of Cabral 512 deepwater mooring rope with a minimum breaking strength of 12,400 kilonewtons. Each mooring line will comprise a chain top segment, polyester rope middle segment and chain bottom segment, connected to a suction pile anchor.

Manufactured from high efficiency sub-rope cores laid parallel within an outer braided jacket, each sub-rope is monitored during rope manufacture to ensure all sub-ropes have equal tension and length, Lankhorst said. The Cabral 512 ropes will be manufactured at Lankhorst Offshore’s factory, dedicated to the production of offshore mooring systems, in Paredes, Portugal.
