Hurricane Energy has completed subsea installation for the Lancaster field Early Production System (Lancaster EPS) in the West of Shetland area and is ready for the arrival of the Aoka Mizu FPSO. 

Hurricane made the Final Investment Decision on the development of the Lancaster EPS in September 2017 with plans for a phased development.

Back in August, the turret mooring system, including the newly-constructed buoy for the Aoka Mizu FPSO, was installed on the field.

Hurricane said on Thursday that the installation of subsea umbilical, risers and flowlines (SURF) for the Lancaster EPS has now been successfully completed, marking the end of the offshore installation program.

The final activity at the field will be a program of protective rock dumping, expected to take place in October, the company added.

The system is now complete and ready for the arrival of the Aoka Mizu FPSO. The works on the vessel in Dubai are in their final stages, with sea trials expected to start by the end of the month and sailaway to follow shortly thereafter.

Dr Robert Trice, Chief Executive of Hurricane, commented: “I’m pleased to report successful completion of subsea installation, the final element of the installation campaign scheduled for the 2018 summer weather window. The required infrastructure is now in place for the Aoka Mizu FPSO to hook-up and start commissioning upon arrival. I look forward to first oil in 1H 2019.”
