Aquaterra Energy installs Sea Swift platform offshore Egypt
The platform is installed in 23 m water depthAquaterra Energy, a leading global offshore engineering solutions provider, has designed, fabricated and installed a new Sea Swift platform for PICO Petroleum Integrated Services, the lead contractor for Amal Petroleum Companys (AMAPETCO) Amal field in the Gulf of Suez, offshore Egypt
The Sea Swift is a Conductor Supported Platform (CSP) and is installed in 23 m water depth. It included a 385 tonne topside featuring a helideck and emergency accommodation with provision for six wells. The new topsides facility for the Amal-C platform involved designing process, piping, electrical, instrumentation, control system and technical safety scopes of work, the project also included the design of the new subsea production pipelines to the Amal-A platform. The project, which took 18 months from design to installation, involved building a bridge link to the neighbouring Amal-B platform and reconfiguring the topside pipework to create a new and improved production profile.
George Morrison, managing director of Aquaterra Energy said, The Sea Swift platform is an ideal solution for shallow water field developments as it can be delivered from concept to completion quickly. This project will bring AMAPETCO significant cost and efficiency savings. We are extremely proud to be working closely with PICO Petroleum Integrated Services to deliver this flagship project from design to delivery.
