Jumbo nabs Western Isles Development Project job

On Tuesday 12th of March Jumbo signed a Contract with Subsea 7 for the provision of the FPSO Mooring Piles and Ground Chains Installation for the Dana Western Isles Development Project (WIDP).

Installation of the mooring piles and chains will be done by Jumbo’s Fairplayer, a Dynamically Positioned Heavy Lift Vessel with 2 x 900 MTon revolving deep-water cranes.

The offshore installation works are anticipated to commence in July/August 2014.

With the current Ithaca Stella mooring project already in preparation, the Fairplayer will execute Western Isles this summer in a continuous offshore North Sea campaign. Subsequent schedule synergy saves valuable project cost, time and resources.

Jumbo’s Manager of Commerce Offshore, Roddy Lafontaine says; “This award allows for a robust North Sea installation campaign with the opportunities to materialize synergy. Western Isles will give us more experience in operating the harsher environment of the northern North Sea.”

I would like to sincerely thank Subsea 7 for the confidence placed in Jumbo and we are very much looking forward to working together to a successful project completion.

Western Isles Development Project (WIDP)

The Dana operated Western Isles field is located in Northern North Sea, UK Block 210/24a, situated 90 km to the North East of Shetland. The water depth at site is approximately 160m. The WIDP will be developed using subsea wells tied back to a centrally located FPSO. Oil will be exported by shuttle tanker and gas will be exported through a dedicated pipeline to the existing Tern platform.

Dana’s WIDP partner is Cieco. First oil production is expected in Q3, 2015.
