2H Offshore Installs Conductor Supported Platform Offshore Malaysia

2H Offshore, a riser and conductor specialist in subsea services group Acteon, has completed the installation of another lightweight, conductor supported, minimum facility wellhead platform offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.

The company was responsible for the concept, detailed design, transportation and installation of the platform in 35 m water depth for the D18 Phase 2 project for OceanMight Sdn Bhd on behalf of PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.

This follows the recent success of a similar installation for the D28 Phase 1 project and is the second platform of its kind to be installed using a jack-up drilling rig for PETRONAS in Malaysia. The efficient installation method and partnership with major Sarawak onshore fabrication company OceanMight meant that project execution was efficient and seamless. The jacket and topside were installed offshore in the same campaign and handed over to drilling and completions.

Shreenaath Natarajan, 2H Offshore director and project manager, said, “It is a great achievement to have delivered yet another low-cost minimum facility platform in a challenging oil price environment. This project clearly demonstrates our unique ability to combine innovative bespoke engineering with intelligent and efficient rig installation.”

This project marks the eighth successful conductor-supported platform installation in Malaysian waters by 2H Offshore’s Kuala Lumpur office.
