EnerMech supports turret ops on BP’s Glen Lyon FPSO

Mechanical engineering specialist EnerMech is in the process of delivering a contract worth over £5 million ($6.6M) supporting the turret delivery team on BP’s Glen Lyon floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The vessel left Aibel’s yard in Haugesund, Norway in June, towed by Solstad Offshore’s vessel.

Solstad provided two AHTS vessels, Normand Prosper and Normand Ranger, and CSV Normand Progress from its own fleet, and a fourth vessel was chartered in.

According to EnerMech, the FPSO has now arrived for the hook-up operations West of Shetland.

EnerMech said it provided winch engineering, associated operations, and materials for the FPSO’s main turret system riser winch handling system during construction of the Glen Lyon.

The company added that it will provide ongoing field support during hook-up operations through to 2017.

Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech has previously supported BP in 2014 for the preparation and operation of the FPSO Schiehallion’s riser winch system during the field suspension and vessel removal phase.

EnerMech technical support manager, Neil McNaughton, said: “We embedded an Engineering Technical team within BP’s project team and assigned a 20-man team of supervisors and technicians who were specially trained for infield operations, maintenance and support of turret services.”

The Glen Lyon is a key element of the multi-billion pound Quad204 North Sea project, which includes redeveloping the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, extending production out to 2035 and possibly beyond.

The FPSO measures 270 meters long by 52 meters wide. It will be able to process and export up to 130,000 barrels of oil a day and store up to 800,000 barrels.

BP owns 36.3%, with other interests are as follows: Shell 54.03%, OMV 9.67%.
