Ikdam Project – Latest News

Mooring Systems Ltd were approached by Petrofac Engineering Ltd to provide equipment and expertise to modify the existing umbilical arrangement offshore Tunisia. Mooring Systems role was to:

  • Assist with project planning.
  • Write rigging and lifting plans for lowering umbilical , transferring onto a DSV.
  • Participate in site visits on the FPSO, support vessels.
  • Procure , supply all necessary equipment ( including our spooling unit) to carry out the tasks in a safe and controlled manner.
  • Supply rigging supervision , rigging teams.

The work involved lowering the damaged umbilical from the FPSO through the guide frames, and transferring them onto the DSV. These were then pulled onboard by the Mooring Systems spooler.

The damaged section was substituted for a temporary umbilical, in order to maintain maximum production. Once the damaged umbilical was repaired onshore it was returned to the field, installed, tested and de-rigged.

This project was conducted in a safe and controlled manner, on time and within budget.
