KICKING off in May, Furgro’s Southern Ocean vessel will work on the Pyrenees phase 3 installation project, as part of a recently awarded contract by BHP Billiton Petroleum.

The Pyrenees development is located offshore Western Australia and comprises six separate fields: Stickle, Crosby, Tanglehead, Moondyne, Wild Bull and Ravensworth.

This project includes tie back of Stickle 9 well to the existing Tanglehead manifold.

Fugro’s scope of work includes suspension of existing infrastructure, and installation and pre-commissioning of the new flexibles and flying leads.

ROV intervention and well commissioning support will be provided.

In addition the contract includes the supply and fabrication of crossings, stabilisation and installation aids, along with mobilisation and transportation of equipment to the field, Fugro said.

Commencing in May 2016, all offshore activities will take place from Fugro’s multi-role construction vessel, the Southern Ocean.

The fuel efficient, DP2 vessel is fitted with the required installation spreads to complete the subsea workscope, according to the company.

Project management, engineering and associated support functions will be provided by the independent service provider.
