VIDEO: Catcher FPSO on sea trials before sailaway

BW Offshore-owned floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel BW Catcher, built for Premier Oil-operated Catcher development in the UK sector of the North Sea, is undergoing marine trials in Singapore ahead of its departure to final offshore location. 

Earlier this week, Premier Oil launched a video of the FPSO starting its marine trials off Singapore. The unit is scheduled to leave the shipyard and head to the UK this month.

The FPSO was built by Keppel’s shipyard where a naming ceremony was held in April. The vessel is 241 meters long, 50 meters wide and 27 meters deep and it will be able to process up to 60,000 barrels of oil a day.

The Catcher development, made up of several fields discovered between 2010 and 2013, is located 170 kilometers south-east of Aberdeen. The development entails 22 subsea wells, 14 producers and 8 water injectors, on the Catcher, Varadero and Burgman fields which will be tied back to the leased BW Catcher FPSO. Upon completion, the vessel will be on a seven-year fixed term and 18 years of options contract with Premier Oil.

At the end of July Premier Oil was working to complete the last of twelve wells scheduled for completion pre-first oil and the project remains on track for start-up in 2017.
