Croatia: Viktor Lenac to Convert SHCV Sampson into Crane and Pipelay Vessel

Viktor Lenac Shipyard has been recently awarded a contract for the conversion of the vessel SHCV “SAMPSON” (managed by Cyprus’s „VShips“ and Great Britain’s „Zafiro Marine“) by “CARVAL INVESTORS”, a leading global alternative investment manager.

The existing vessel is an offshore gas and oil field installation vessel, built in 2010. She is 180 m long and 32 m wide, carrying a crane of 1.600 ton capacity. “SAMPSON” will be converted into a crane and pipelay vessel, one more conversion on Viktor Lenac’s respectable reference list of complex projects in conversion and offshore among which Helix Producer I, Seminole, Kommandor 3000 and others, establishing its position as one of the few specialized shipyards for ship conversions and gas platform construction in the entire region of the Mediterranean.

Six new Diesel generators (2200 kW each) will be installed in two independent engine rooms. New ship systems will be installed with more than 40 tons of piping. Two new thrusters will be installed i.w.o. existing fresh water tanks. HiPAP for dynamic positioning will be relocated in newly built structural trunks. New A&R winch room will be built and outfitted i.w.o. existing hold no.1.

Complete pipe laying equipment (tensioners, track supports, conveyors, pipe loader etc.) will be installed with hydraulic systems on main deck. A new pipe lay tunnel (300 t) and A-frame structure (276 t) will be built and installed. A new stinger structure (390 t) for laying offshore pipelines will be built.

The existing ship systems will be modified to accommodate new equipment, propulsion and power generation.

Two engine rooms, two switchboard rooms and two thruster rooms will be outfitted and HVAC system will be installed in new ship spaces.

More than 150 km of cables will be installed in total.

The superstructure will undergo considerable modification including gym, sauna, swimming pool etc.

Technical Writing for E&P Staff: A Structured Approach

This unique workshop provides guidelines for the efficient reporting of petroleum engineering, geological and geophysical studies. No technical project carried out within the Petroleum Industry is complete if it is not presented or reported competently.

It will help you to produce concise and readable management briefings, well/study proposals, field development plans, operating manuals, equity documentation and study reports.

Most ‘communication skills’ courses are presented by individuals from outside the oil industry. This one is different. It gives practical instruction rather than theory, and is based on the presenter’s extensive experience of reporting integrated field development studies in an International Oil Company and Consultancy environment, as well as Board papers and legal documentation.
