IEV gearing up for Malikai TLP installation

Malaysian oil and gas services firm IEV has started mobilization for the offshore transportation and installation of Shell’s Malikai Tension Leg Platform (“TLP”).

The offshore transportation and installation of the anchoring piles and the TLP will be undertaken using the Sapura 3000 and Aegir construction vessels, as well a number of transportation barges and tugs.

The company will take part in the transportation and installation of the integrated TLP, both hull and ropside, including the pre-installation of the TLP tendon foundation piles, make-up of tendons and pre-installation of tender assist mooring system in a water depth of approximately 500 meters.

The offshore transportation and installation scope of the project is expected to complete before the end of July 2016.

The Ggroup will be executing the project in cooperation with the Dutch company Heerema Marine Contractors , a specialist in installing complex offshore infrastructures.

As for the Malikai TLP, ALE Heavy Lift company recently loaded out the 27,500 tonnes facility, at Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) West in Johor Darul Takzim, Malaysia.

The company said that in March 2016, ALE skidded the TLP 75m onto the ‘White Marlin’ vessel using eight strand jacks, with 900t capacity each. Each strand jack was fitted with 39 strand wires, giving a total pulling capacity of 5,928t. As well as the skidding operation for the load-out, ALE operated their barge level monitoring system.

According to ALE, the White Marlin has since taken the TLP to an area off the coast of Singapore, where the float-off operation was completed, the TLP towed back and moored against the quay for final testing and commissioning. Once completed, the TLP will be towed to its operating offshore site, 100km from Sabah, Malaysia.
