Jumbo Wins Leviathan Work
Dutch offshore services provider Jumbo said it has been awarded a contract for the transportation and installation of a 410-ton subsea production manifold for the Leviathan development off the coast of Israel.
Technip, which is preparing for a project including a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea wells to a fixed platform located approximately 10 kilometers offshore Israel, awarded Jumbo's Offshore division with the contract to perform the task of lowering the manifold onto the seabed at a 1,643-meter water depth and installing various other SSIV’s and valve skids at a water depth of approximately 86 meters.
In addition, Jumbo said it will also transport various equipment from the U.S. Gulf Coast to the Eastern Mediterranean.
The Jumbo team will also provide project management and engineering services for this scope of work, including attendance of HIRAs and review of Technip procedures and analyses.
“Jumbo will appoint one of her offshore HLCV’s to complete this project in early 2019. By using one of our DP equipped heavy lift construction vessels with its combination of transport and deepwater installation capabilities, we can provide a unique solution for the transportation and installation aspects of this project,” said Brian Boutkan, Head of Sales & Business Development Americas, Jumbo Offshore.
The Leviathan Field is located in the I/14 Leviathan North and I/14 Leviathan South leases, approximately 125 kilometers west of Haifa, Israel, and 35 kilometers west of the Tamar field in the eastern Mediterranean Levantine Basin. Water depth ranges from 1,600 to 1,750 meters.
