SNC-Lavalin wins long-term work at Hibernia, Hebron platforms

SNC-Lavalin has won a long-term contract for the inspection services aboard the Hibernia and Hebron offshore platforms in Canada.

The contract, awarded by Hibernia Management & Development Company Ltd. (HMDC) and ExxonMobil Canada Properties, is for six years.

SNC-Lavalin has provided inspection services for the Hibernia platform since 1997.

According to the company, the contract will make it responsible for the provision of inspections related to the integrity and reliability of the Hibernia platform and the upcoming Hebron platform.

The scope includes topside modules and mounted structures, primary and secondary structural elements, outfitting steel, drilling derricks and components of the concrete Gravity Base Structure, pressure equipment and lifting equipment.

“For the last 19 years, we have played an active role in providing HMDC with asset integrity services on its Hibernia platform,” said Ian L. Edwards, President, Infrastructure. “This contract reflects the strength of our relationship with our client and highlights our ability to provide innovative technology and tools.”

The platforms

Hibernia is an oil field in the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately 315 kilometers east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, in 80 meters of water.

The completed platform was towed to the Hibernia oil field and positioned on the ocean floor in June of 1997, and began producing oil on November 17, 1997. The platform is 224 meters high, and it has three separate components, topsides, gravity base structure and offshore loading system (OLS).

As for the Hebron oil field, it is located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin 350 kilometers southeast of St. John’s. The field was first discovered in 1980, and is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources. The water depth at the Hebron field is 93 meters.
The Hebron is is being developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). The GBS consists of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand sea ice, icebergs and meteorological and oceanographic conditions. First oil is expected later in 2017.
