VIDEO: World’s largest crane vessel installs Equinor’s Peregrino C platform

Norwegian oil and gas company Equinor has installed the Peregrino C platform on the Peregrino field located offshore Brazil ahead of production startup planned for later this year. 


Equinor, the operator of the Peregrino field, on Friday launched a video with highlights from the installation of the platform’s two largest modules – the main support frame and the living quarters.

The Peregrino topsides sailed away from Texas to Brazil on board Heerema’s H-541 cargo barge last November. The living quarters for the Peregrino C platform also set sail in November from Stord, Norway, onboard the BigRoll Beaufort vessel. The Peregrino jacket sailed away before that, in October 2019. It was built by Heerema Fabrication Group in the Netherlands.

According to Equinor’s update on Friday, the Peregrino C platform is now in place in Brazil after installation by Heerema’s Sleipnir, the largest crane vessel in the world.

Equinor added that the GranEnergia Olympia flotel has now connected to the platform and in total 880 individuals will work offshore to prepare the platform for operations later this year.

Once on stream, Peregrino C will provide 350 offshore and onshore jobs in Brazil, Equinor noted.

The Equinor-operated Peregrino oil field is located in licenses BM-C-7 and BM-C-47, approximately 85km offshore Brazil, in the Campos basin, in water depths of 100m. The field consists of two fixed wellhead platforms and floating production storage and offloading unit.

The Peregrino C platform is part of the Peregrino Phase II Project, which includes the addition of a third fixed wellhead platform to the field. The second phase is expected to be developed at a cost of $3.5 billion.

The platform will contribute to prolonging the lifetime for the Peregrino field and will create value for 20 years. It will add 273 million in recoverable reserves.
