GSP Offshore’s GSP Jupiter jack-up rig has begun its work for the Greek oil firm Energean, under the EPCI contract signed earlier this year aimed at the development of the Epsilon oil field offshore Greece.
In a statement on Tuesday, Energean said that the GSP Jupiter had been moved to drilling position using AHTS GSP Queen.
Energean is developing the Epsilon field in order to increase production from the Prinos concession area.
The development comprises an unmanned wellhead platform and three inter-connecting pipelines to the existing Prinos Delta platform.
GSP Offshore’s scope of work includes the drilling of 3 wells at Lamda Platform location in the Aegean Sea, using GSP Jupiter jack-up rig, as well as the construction and delivery of the Lamda platform and inter-connecting pipelines.
Topsides and jacket will be fabricated at GSP shipyard facilities Constanza between 2018 – 2019. Platform piles and base frame are scheduled be installed in 2018. Jacket is expected to be installed on top of piles in 2019, while deck’s installation on jacket and final commissioning is planned for 2019
The Lamda platform will be located approximately 4 kilometers west of the existing Prinos Delta complex.
Lamda is designed to function as a normally unmanned installation, remotely operable under all weather conditions.
