CIS takes part in Cendor development (Malaysia)

Conductor Installation Services, an Acteon Company, has announced that it successfully completed a contract for Weatherford Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. to provide conductor-driving services and associated equipment on behalf of Petrofac (Malaysia-PM304) Limited and Petrofac Energy Developments Sdn. Bhd., collectively referred to as Petrofac.

These services were delivered as part of Petrofac’s plans to develop Block PM304 for production on the Cendor Field Development and to further expand the Berantai Field Development, which are located offshore Terengganu, Malaysia.

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. More specifically, CIS was 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.

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 contract, valued in excess of $1 million, was completed by CIS with support from its base in Singapore and global headquarters in Great Yarmouth, England. Working in water depths to 62 metres, CIS installed all nine conductors in just six days on the Cendor Phase II Development.

Although CIS has provided Petrofac Malaysia with custom drive shoes in the past, this project marked an important first for CIS. “The contract award from Weatherford Malaysia represented the first time that we had been contracted to provide conductor-driving services to Petrofac in Malaysia, so it was especially significant,” said Andy Penman, Group Managing Director of CIS. “We appreciate the opportunity to have contributed to the Cendor and Berantai developments,” he added. CIS has been carrying out conductor installation services in Malaysia since 2006.

In 2005, CIS performed its first-ever hydraulic conductor installation operation. Since then, the company has carried out more than 800 conductor installation operations worldwide, in Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Trinidad, China, the Middle East, West Africa, and the Gulf of Mexico, among others.

CIS, a member of Acteon’s Conductors, Risers and Flowlines group, provides conductor and pile installation services associated with construction projects carried out in the global oil and gas industry. These services are carried out both onshore and offshore to, for example, create foundations for new wells, platforms, bridges and jetties. The range of services provided by CIS supports the Acteon Group’s commitment to defining subsea services across a range of interconnected disciplines.
