Jumbo Offshore has won a contract for the transport and installation of a 410 tonne subsea module as part of the Leviathan development off the coast of Israel.
Technip awarded Jumbo the contract where the manifold will be installed at a depth of 1,643 metres. Technip’s project includes a subsea production system connecting high-rate subsea oil wells to a fixed platform around 10 km off the coast of Israel. Jumbo will also install other modules at a depth of 86 m. In addition, it will also transport equipment from US Gulf Coast to the Eastern Mediterranean sea.
Commenting on the job, Brian Boutkan, Jumbo Offshore head of sales and business development Americas, said, “Jumbo will appoint one of her offshore HLCVs [heavy lift construction vessels] 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.”0
The Leviathan Field is around 125 km west of Haifa, Israel, and 35 km west of the Tamar field in the eastern Mediterranean Levantine Basin. Water depth ranges between 1,600 and 1,750 m.
Jumbo’s fleet of heavy lift installation vessels range in capacity from 650 to 3,000 tonnes. They operate worldwide in the oil and gas and renewable energy industries.
