SBSS Completes Power Cable Inter Connection between Shell Platforms in Malaysia

 

Shell Cili Padi power cable installation marks another important milestone to SBSS’s contribution to the Oil & Gas. The project requires the precision laying and interconnection of 31.76km of power cable between platforms F23R-A and CDPR-A (Cili-Padi) situated in Sarawak Malaysia. This power line is vital to oil production and is critical for the power supply and remote monitoring of the Cili Padi platform.

Thorough audits were carried out by the client and the high standards of SBSS’s vessel, crew and project team prevailed with the demands of uncompromised levels of HSE checks and stringent vessel trials prior to entering the work site. Before project commencement, detailed engineering analysis, cable stress calculations and installation methodology had to be performed to ensure the highest level of conformance and quality of this complex operation.

SBSS unparalleled experience in cable lay was delivered with the highly capable DPII Cable Ship -CS Fu Hai fitted with a purposed built cable lay spread and a specialized 200hp Work Class ROV. The 11kV cable had to be laid precisely along a given path and concrete mattresses have to be installed to stabilize and protect the cable at specific points along the route. SBSS “Sealion II” ROV was deployed extensively for J Tube inspection and delicate intervention works close to the base structure of each platform. Post Lay Inspection and Burial (PLIB) performed by the ROV was also specified by Shell after the completion of lay to enable better protection of the cable within the 500m zone of F23R-A platform.

SBSS worked closely with reputed contractors in Malaysia to ensure adequate resources and local support available at the worksite. The cable installation and work scope was completed with impressive precision and conformance to the designed route. Shell Cili Padi project marks another successful conclusion to SBSS delivering a high quality solution of subsea power line installation to the Oil & Gas.
