BHP Billiton Petroleum has selected Fugro to provide services for its Pyrenees Phase III installation project offshore in Western Australia.

The Pyrenees development is located in water depths of 200m, 45km north-west of Exmouth and consists of Stickle, Crosby, Tanglehead, Moondyne, Wild Bull and Ravensworth fields.

The Stickle 9 well is tied back to the existing Tanglehead manifold.

As part of the work, Fugro will suspend existing infrastructure and install and pre-commission the new flexibles and flying leads.

The company will provide remotely operated vehicles (ROV) intervention and well commissioning support in addition to supplying and fabricating crossings.

The work also includes stabilisation and installation aids, along with mobilising and transporting equipment to the field.

Fugro plans to begin all offshore activities in May 2016 using the company’s multi-role construction DP2 vessel, the Southern Ocean, which is fitted with the required installation spreads.

Fugro will also provide all project management, engineering and associated support functions for the project.

The complete Pyrenees project involves 13 subsea wells, a subsea gathering system and afloating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility.

Pyrenees is located in production license area WA-42-L. The joint venture partners are BHP Billiton with 71.43% interest and Apache with 28.57% interest.
