Analysts Simon Thomson Okay. I’m Simon Thomson, Chief Executive. So as in the usual way, we’ve got a presentation to run through with you this morning, and we’d be very happy to take questions at the end. It’s being webcast, so there will be microphones available for any questions that you have. And just a point of housekeeping before going through the presentation, there is no scheduled fire alarm. So if an alarm should sound, I’m sure you’ve been here before, but the exits are that door there, and more easily, that door there, and the muster point is out in the square. So turning to first slide. Cairn strategy for value creation remains consistent and straightforward. We seek to create, add, and at the right time, the time of our choosing, realize value for shareholders all against the backdrop of financial flexibility and disciplined capital allocation. And in support of that strategy, really, there are three core pillars.

The vessel has left Keppel Shipyard in Singapore and is currently in transit to the Catcher field in the central North Sea. BW Catcher is expected to reach UK waters early in the fourth quarter, depending on prevailing weather conditions. Upon its arrival, BW Catcher will commence a seven-year fixed term contract, with extension options of up to 18 years, with Premier Oil. Based on a field life of 10 years, the contract value is USD 2.

It is a robust concept with potential for broader applications as the number of pioneer deepwater discoveries shrinks and as the industry seeks new ways to monetize isolated fields. The economic benefits of incorporating a drilling rig onboard an FPSO brings new hope for deepwater developments in similar environments.

Drilling and production can begin to generate revenues while also generating valuable reservoir performance data. Water depths across MPS range from 1, — 2, m 3, — 6, ft. Murphy West Africa Ltd. Each of the latter was sidetracked ST to appraise the four fault blocks of the field. Aquifer strength was found to be essentially non-existent along the producing trend, necessitating water injection to support reservoir pressure.

Concepts considered In March , Doris Inc. The four main alternatives evaluated were: Subsea tiebacks to third party facilities 2.

The vessel has set out toward the west of Shetland, where it will function as the hub for the million barrel Quad development in the North Sea. The meters long and 52 meters wide FPSO vessel is a crucial component of the multi-billion pound Quad project. The Schiehallion and Loyal fields are being re-developed under Quad project and are expected to be productive till and beyond.

The project entails linking and commissioning the new FPSO vessel, drilling many new production and injection wells as well as upgrading the subsea seabed pipeline, manifold and wellhead infrastructure that will facilitate full development of the reserves. Schiehallion and Loyal fields were brought online in and they have produced about million barrels of oil since. The fields are estimated to hold another million barrels of resource, which the company hopes to extract through the Quad development.

Under the contract, Technip will provide engineering and modification services for each vessel in Blocks 18 and 31 respectively. Additionally, Technip will provide procurement and project management for onshore and offshore construction activities. Technip’s operating center in Luanda will execute the contract which is scheduled for completion near the end of First oil started with three production wells in the Plutao field and should ramp up to roughly 70, barrels per day.

Production should hit , barrels per day once wells from the Saturno, Venus and Marte fields are brought online. Production from the fields flows through an FPSO with a storage capacity of 1. A total of 40 production, gas and water injection wells will be connected to the vessel through 15 subsea manifolds. Production should hit , barrels per day once wells from the Saturno, Venus and Marte fields are brought on-line.

The scope of the model test and the virtual simulation covers various installation stages including a series of positioning trials, positioning keeping and temporary mooring to the pre-installed SYMS mooring tower, pendulum mating, and yoke ballasting to storm-safe. The model test is to accurately verify bollard pull capacity to keep the FPSO in position and assess motion responses and mooring loads for the FPSO and installation vessels during various installation stages.

The virtual simulation is to provide a virtual-reality environment, thus realistically replicating the hookup operation at the Simulation Test Center STC facility and identifying any deficiencies in key installation personnel, execution plan, or operation procedures. The methodologies of the model test and the virtual simulation addressed here can be easily extended to the deepwater applications such as positioning and installation operations of various floating systems.

Offshore Adriatic Sea FPSO Project – Update

Facebook Maersk Peregrino is operating in the oil field Peregrino, 85 km off the shore of Brazil. Pumping oil from offshore wells requires a very safe operation as the costs of failure is immense – both economically and environmentally. The hook-up between the turret and the FPSO is a critical and costly operation, and it is therefore important for the owner and operator to get it right the first time. The simulations should form the basis for deciding the tug size needed during the hook-up between the FPSO and the STP buoy at the Peregrino oil field.

The simulation studies were performed with the help of in-house developed mathematical and visual simulator models of the FPSO. Establishing the mathematical model By combining the aerodynamic data from the wind tunnel tests with the hydrodynamic forces acting on the ship, a simulator model of Maersk Peregrino was generated using our in-house developed manoeuvring prediction and ship generation tool ShipYard which is a part of SimFlex simulator setup.

Our thoughts are first and foremost with the families and colleagues of the victims who lost their lives or suffered injuries. Total has dispatched its experts to join the ongoing investigation to identify the fundamental causes of the accident and implement the necessary preventive measures to avoid any reoccurrence of such accidents. Following the accident, works related to the Martin Linge project were suspended until June 1st.

As a result, the shipping of the Martin Linge modules from the South Korean yard to Norway will be delayed. The installation of the modules and lifting operations, which can only be carried out during summertime given weather conditions in the Norwegian North Sea, had initially been planned for summer but have now been postponed to summer Therefore, given the hook-up and commissioning operations, production start-up has been delayed to first half Works on the Egina FPSO resumed following a two-week suspension and the impact on the project, which is expected to start up in second half , will be limited.

Finally, the CPF Central Processing Facilities for the Ichthys project, operated by Inpex, had already departed the Geoje yard several days before the accident and is now installed on the field in offshore Australia.

It stated, “There was no sum of money allocated for development of the yard in the EPC contract price. As the NC modules and integration of the Egina FPSO were to be executed in the yard, the completion of the yard was essential to the success of the project. There were no existing facilities. Hence, the option of corporate finances. Consequently no fraud or misrepresentation by SHIN.

This matter has been clarified by Total in writing and resolved before the Senate. In any event the matter is before the Court and would be resolved by the Courts in due course. Managing Director of Total did indeed make the referenced statement in the said letter of 14 February, The only issue is ownership of the facility, which LADOL is attempting to seize through abuse of its position as the free zone manager.

Employment capacity of the facility is not tied to ‘ownership’ but availability of the facility.
