Aquaterra Energy has secured a big settlement from Chevron to design and assist set up of a Sea Swift offshore platform resolution off the coast of Angola, via its wholly owned subsidiary in Angola, Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited (CABGOC).
Destined for the Lifua-A area, the conductor supported platform (CSP) can be designed and put in in 60m of water. Sea Swift was chosen for its modular design to reduce construct and implementation time and for the power to manufacture the platform regionally in Cabinda, Angola. Aquaterra Energy will handle the whole venture scope by way of its in-house engineering and venture administration groups and can make use of each Angolan fabrication and set up assist.
Stewart Maxwell, Technical Director at Aquaterra Energy stated: “CSPs are generally misunderstood and may typically be ignored for extra conventional jacketed platforms. However, CSPs like Sea Swift could be put in by jack-up, in order that operators can benefit from the infrastructure they’ve obtainable within the area, with out the necessity to mobilize different belongings – saving priceless time and sources.”
Sea Swift is a minimum-facility offshore platform for fast returns in shallow waters. Using properly conductors because the structural assist for the topside, Sea Swift minimizes construct and implementation occasions. The platforms supply a low-risk, low-cost path to lowered time to first oil and decrease capital funding.

“This settlement is a key milestone on the Sea Swift success story, and an actual achievement for the whole workforce. This can be our fifth Sea Swift platform in West Africa and highlights the rising significance of versatile platform fabrication that may not solely assist native content material guidelines but in addition cut back environmental impression by way of modern set up choices.”, provides Maxwell.
