ACTEON subsidiary Conductor Installation Services (CIS) has completed a US$1 million conductor-driving operation on Petrofac’s Cendor and Berantai Field Developments offshore Terengganu, Malaysia.

Delivered on behalf of Weatherford, the services were part of Petrofac’s planned development for production of Block PM304 on the Cendor field.

Working from the GSF Galveston Key and Trident IX jack-up rigs, CIS used a 90kJ hydraulic hammer to drive fifteen 36-inch conductors into the seabed to form part of the foundations of the Cendor B and C platforms, which are key components of this development.

The company installed nine conductors in just six days on the Cendor Phase II Development while working in water depths of up to 62 metres.

CIS supplied full project management, including personnel and onshore technical support for the entire project, from the fabrication of drive shoes through to the installation of the conductors.

The company was also responsible for carrying out drivability studies, fabricating customised drive shoes, welding the drive shoes to the customer’s pipe and supplying handling and cold cutting equipment.

CIS completed the project with support from its base in Singapore and global headquarters in Great Yarmouth, in the UK.

While the company has been carrying out conductor installation services in Malaysia since 2006, CIS group managing director Andy Penman said this was the first time they had done so for Petrofac.
