GALLERY: Aibel to prepare Teekay’s Petrojarl I FPSO for redeployment

Norwegian oil services company Aibel has been chosen to prepare Teekay’s Petrojarl I FPSO for redeployment offshore Brazil. 

Aibel said via social media on Monday that, during the next month, the company’s Haugesund yard will prepare the FPSO for its upcoming duties at the Atlanta field offshore Brazil later this autumn.

According to the company, the Petrojarl I arrived at the Haugesund yard on Sunday, August 27.

To remind, upgrade work on the Petrojarl I FPSO was completed by Damen Shipyard in mid-August. The shipyard has worked on preparing the vessel for Brazil since early 2015. The FPSO had worked in the North Sea for 28 years, when Teekay, rather than scrapping it, decided to give it a new lease of life, after finding work for it in Brazil, at QGEP’s Atlanta field.

The self-propelled FPSO spent 14 months in Dock no. 8 in Rotterdam, undergoing refurbishment of its marine systems, underwater hull, seawater system, crane booms, heating coils in the cargo tanks, and specialized steelworks in the upper and lower turret areas, which needed to be completely revised and adapted to suit the 1,500 meters deep mooring location.

Simultaneously, newly designed, prefabricated equipment skids containing heating, cooling, separation, compression, boilers, centrifuges as well as a new E-house with electrical equipment were placed on board. Interconnecting piping and cabling were subsequently installed to complete the topsides and connect it to the remaining facilities.

As far as Aibel’s involvement in the FPSO’s preparation is concerned, the company announced on August 21 that it was awarded a contract to prepare Teekay’s Petrojarl I FPSO for redeployment. The scope of the work includes commissioning and reactivation.
