TEP is proud to announce that it has successfully delivered the Boat Landing Systems (BLS), Tongue Grout Seal, Sway and Surge fenders to the prominent NASR 2 Project, which is located approximately 120 kilometres northwest of Abu Dhabi in the Arabian Gulf. The facilities utilising these solutions consist of a multi-platform super complex that includes central processing facilities, accommodation, utilities, flares, bridges and power distribution.
The NASR Phase II Full Field Development Project, aimed at increasing the field's oil production capacity to 65,000 barrels per day (bpd) from the existing capacity of 22,000bpd, is underway and is expected to conclude in the first half of 2019. The NASR field development forms part of ADMA-OPCO's overall plan to fast track the development of its new fields including Satah Al Razboot (SARB) and Umm Lulu, and increase the company's production capacity by an additional 270,000bpd. This project is owned by ADMA-OPCO, a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc - 60%), BP (14.67%), Total (13.33%) and Japan Oil Development Company (Jodco, a subsidiary of Inpex Corporation - 12%) is the operator of the field. The Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation contract for NASR Package 2, valued at $1.938 billion, was awarded to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). The consultant, KBR was selected by HHI for this project and provides the engineering design and support services for the entire scope.
The delivery to HHI includes the floatover fender systems for three platforms. Five platforms utilised our tongue grout seals and boat landing systems which comprises of shear bearings, compression fenders and rubstrips.
The floatover fenders are used to limit the motion of a topside transport barge when it is within the confines of a jacket slot as well as reduce the transport barge's impact loads on the jacket legs, especially when it moves forward or sideways during the mating operation.
The boat landing systems are used to absorb the kinetic energy of a berthing vessel, thus preventing damage to the vessel or the platform jacket during the production phase. The shear bearings used in these boat landing systems are the largest ever produced, with displacement capacity of 1600mm using specially formulated elastomeric compound.
The tongue grout seals are specially designed for driven pile and it is secured directly onto it instead of the usual mounting onto the leg can. Tongue grout seal seals the jacket ID to allow grout to be filled between it during jacket installation process.
These solutions were custom designed with TEP’s experience and knowledge of the offshore oil and gas industry, and working closely together with our customer HHI.
TEP is responsible for the global supply of high performance offshore fenders, ranging from oil and gas platforms, to vessels such as FPSO/FLNG, as well as smaller barges and ships.
