Subsea infrastructure services provider N-Sea has been awarded a Hilli Episeyo FLNG contract offshore Cameroon by the Dutch offshore lifting and transportation company, Jumbo Offshore.
The first phase of the project was completed in mid-July as part of the Hilli Episeyo FLNG subsea soft yoke installation, N-Sea said on Tuesday.
The company’s work scope comprises diving and ROV support, performing all subsea installation of the soft yoke system.
The activity N-Sea will perform on the floating liquified natural gas (FLNG) mooring and loading facility includes seabed measuring, mattress placement, anchor base and pile positioning support and pile sleeve sediment removal. Final connection between the yoke and FLNG will be undertaken by N-Sea later in 2017.
Hilli Episeyo was converted from a 1975 built Moss LNG carrier with a storage capacity of 125,000 cubic meters, by Keppel Shipyard for LNG shipper Golar.
The Hilli Episeyo is designed for a liquefaction capacity of about 2.4 million tons of LNG per annum and will be put in operation offshore Kribi, Cameroon for Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures and Perenco Cameroon.
