Hurricane selects marine warranty services provider for Lancaster

FPSO Aoka Mizu

LOC Aberdeen, a part of the marine and engineering consultancy LOC Group, has been appointed by Hurricane Energy to provide marine warranty surveyor services for the Lancaster EPS development.

The Lancaster offshore field in the UK was first drilled by Hurricane in 2009.

In 2017, the company received development and production consent for the early production system, which is expected to produce 17,000 barrels of oil per day for a period of up to six years.

The EPS development will comprise of two wells tied back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO via a new disconnectable turret mooring system.

Hurricane has appointed Bluewater Energy Services to upgrade and operate the Aoka Mizu FPSO and fabricate a new buoy and mooring system. TechnipFMC has been contracted to install the subsea equipment, turret buoy, and mooring system.

LOC said that its scope of work for Hurricane would include third-party approval for the transportation and installation of the subsea equipment, turret buoy, and mooring system.

The LOC deal follows extensive services provided to Bluewater Energy Services covering the full life-cycle of the Aoka Mizu, from hook-up of the Ettrick Field in 2009 through to disconnect in 2016 and the current upgrade scope being carried out at Drydocks World in Dubai.

Adrian Torry, LOC Aberdeen’s managing director, said: “LOC is delighted to be working with Hurricane Energy on the Lancaster EPS Development which represents a significant development for the UK oil and gas industry. This award is recognition of LOC’s recent and extensive experience in floating production systems and subsea developments in the North Sea and West of Shetland regions.”
