Juniper contract

InterMoor has completed the Juniper contract offshore Trinidad and Tobago with the installation of Diamond Offshore Drilling’s Ocean Victory semisubmersible drilling rig to the preset mooring spread.

Carried out in a water depth of 100m, the project marks the completion of the company’s mooring and foundation installation campaign for BP Trinidad and Tobago’s (bpTT) gas project.

According to InterMoor, the hookup required 14 InterMoor personnel offshore, including rig coordinators and superintendents, riggers and engineers aboard the UOS Pathfinder anchor-handling vessel and took less than four days to complete.

InterMoor global president Tom Fulton said: "Our engineering, fabrication and operations teams all worked well together and each played important roles in the successful completion of this project.

"InterMoor is dedicating more and more resources to maintain an active presence and excellent service to our clients in this part of the world."

Prior to the hookup project, InterMoor completed a contract with bpTT, which included the initial design of a mooring system.

The project also included fabrication of driven piles in addition to the installation of a preset mooring spread.

At its facility located in Morgan City, US, InterMoor designed and fabricated eight piles and provided offshore project management services for the mooring campaign.

As part of this, the driven piles were installed using H-links and 300m of ground chain per leg from the Boa Deep C construction vessel.
