SPT Offshore is set to undertake foundation works for the Ophir Oil Field development located offshore Malaysia.
SPT has received a letter of intent for the project, which involves the detailed design of the suction pile foundation, design supervision of the jacket and full transportation and installation of the Ophir wellhead platform, from EPCIC contractor Muhibbah Engineering.
The scheme is based on SPT’s solution consisting of a tri-legged jacket with an integrated suction pile foundation.
SPT MD Mark Riemers said: “This award proves that suction pile foundations for wellhead platforms are a very cost-efficient solution and provides the option for re-use at other fields. Despite the downturn in the offshore oil and gas sector, SPT Offshore was able to secure this project.
“The jacket with integrated suction pile foundation will be installed in one piece offshore, making a safe and swift offshore execution possible.”
