Aquaterra Energy designs, fabricates and installs first CSP platform offshore Trinidad and Tobago
ABERDEEN — Aquaterra Energy, has completed the delivery of a Sea Swift conductor supported platform (CSP) for DeNovo Energy in the Gulf of Paria, offshore Trinidad and Tobago. This is the first platform of its kind to be installed in the country, and was completed in just 10 months.
Located in Iguana field, the Sea Swift was installed from a jackup rig in 27-m water depth, accommodating up to four wells and includes local power generation, manifolds and a control system. To meet the tight delivery timetable, the design phase of the project overlapped with the fabrication of the Sea Swift. It was built by Chet Morrison Contractors who also designed and installed the Iguana pipeline to shore.
Drilling of the first of a three-well development campaign has commenced, using the Well Services Rig 110.
Aquaterra’s Sea Swift platform has been installed across a number of shallow water locations, including three in West Africa, one in Egypt and one in the Far East. Its deepest deployment to date is at 65-m water depth using two subsea structures, offshore Peninsular Malaysia. It is also the largest known CSP in terms of topside weight at more than 400 tonnes fully laden.
