Cortez Subsea Limited Contract Award in support of the Pipeline System for Tembikai Non-Associated Gas Development
1st April 2019 – Cortez Subsea Limited have been
awarded a contract by Alam Maritim Sdn. Bhd. to support their recently awarded Pipeline System for Tembikai Non-Associated
Gas (TNAG) Development by Vestigo Petroleum Sdn. Bhd.
Subsea, under its consortium agreement with Alam Maritim will jointly execute
the project scope of work covering the engineering, procurement and operational
activities from their offices in Kuala Lumpur. The work starts immediately and
is targeted for completion in Q4 2019.
TNAG gas pipeline system will be installed from the new TNAG unmanned wellhead
platform via a 60 km, 12” pipeline and fibre optic control cable. The rigid
pipeline will be the first in offshore Malaysia installed using mechanical
connectors, and specifically the NOV-Tuboscope Zap-Lok™ connection, tied into the existing processing
facilities on the Berantai Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO)
and the Well Head Platform (WHP) with flexible risers connected to the rigid
pipeline with diverless connections.
Cowie Managing Director of Cortez Subsea said, “This is a fantastic achievement
for Cortez Subsea and our partner Alam Maritim. We have worked over several
years with National Oilwell Varco (NOV)-Tuboscope to deliver the Zap-Lok™ mechanical connector into the Malaysian oil & gas
offshore market. Our partnership with Alam Maritim enables us to deliver our
first subsea pipeline project offshore Malaysia, and we look forward to working
together in the future.” Further he added
Bin Rahmad, Group Chief Operating Officer of Alam Maritim Resources Berhad said,
“We are delighted to have been awarded a contract on a project by Vestigo
Petroleum and the confidence they have in us to work on their TNAG pipeline
system.” “Our partnership with Cortez Subsea has brought the ability for us to
apply new technologies and methods for the subsea pipeline installation to the
Malaysian offshore environment and the first subsea pipeline to be installed
using mechanical connectors,” he added.
Line Pipe Product Director, Dr Benjamin Chapman said “the foresight of Vestigo
Petroleum in implementing Zap-Lok and associated services has proven to be successful
and is a key project for NOV. This will demonstrate for the first-time in
Malaysia, tried and tested technology and expertise practised offshore in other
parts of the world.”
The Cortez Subsea scope consisted of pipeline installation engineering plus supply of installation equipment, all offshore personnel and management of the pipeline installation operation
This project showcased Cortez Subsea's ability to deliver not only our Zap-Lok pipelay product but also more conventional methods in a fast and very cost effective manner
