Leighton Offshore Installs SPM Offshore Tanzania

Leighton Offshore has completed the Single Point Mooring System (SPM) installation for the Tanzanian Ports Authority (TPA) and the first tanker of imported white product (diesel) has been offloaded.

The project is located South East of the Port of Dar Es Salaam and comprised the Design, Engineering, Procurement, Fabrication, Installation and Pre-Commissioning of a replacement offshore SPM and pipeline system for the import of crude oil and white products with capacity for larger tankers up 150,000 DWT.

Leighton Offshore CEO Boyd Merrett said, “We are proud to have worked with the Tanzanian Ports Authority to complete this project which included a number of technical firsts, including a complete pigging of the system through the SPM and pipelines, and some challenging work in trenching through the intertidal zone. This is an important facility for Tanzania and neighboring countries, and we are very pleased to have been part of this project development and are continuing to focus on East Africa as a market, where there are significant potential offshore oil and gas projects in early stages of development.”
