BBC Olympus delivers Liza Phase 2 subsea structures
A total of five subsea structures of about 130 metric tons unit weight each have recently been delivered to the Liza Phase 2 project by BBC Chartering’s BBC Olympus. The company was entrusted with the operation by a US unit of the Italian logistics services provider Baggio S.p.A. Trasporti Combinati.
The ExxonMobil-led $6 billion Liza Phase 2 development offshore Guyana is expected to start up in mid-2022. The development includes a total of six drill centres are planned as well as approximately 30 wells, including 15 production, nine water injection and six gas injection wells.
BBC Chartering informed that BBC Olympus delivered the subsea structures to South America a few weeks ago. Upon arrival at the offshore construction site, the structures were transferred to Saipem’s installation vessel, Saipem Constellation in a double-banking operation, making use of the cranes on the installation vessel.
Saipem secured the contract to perform detailed engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the risers, flowlines, and associated structures and jumpers from ExxonMobil in 2018. Saipem will also transport and install umbilicals, manifolds, and associated foundations for the production, and water and gas injection systems.
