Rousette Field Pipeline
System Review
KW1601 Setanta Energy / Procyon Oil & Gas 2011 Identification of feasible options for installing and trenching the 10" production pipeline for the Rousette Field, located approximately 12km offshore Gabon in 46m of water. The project entails installation of a minimum facilities well head platform, subsea pipelines connecting to shore and an onshore processing facility, to be completed in three phases.
International Crude Oil
Export Expansion Project
KW1501 South Oil Company (SOC) / Leighton International 2011 Review of the available options for dredging backfill methodology for the Shore Approach and Offshore, in light of the available soils and metocean data. Preliminary assessment of what the backfill condition will be, and how changes to the methodology could improve the situation. The potential effect of the operation on the lines, given the proposed schedule and contents of the lines, is key. Consideration is given to how the potential methods affect the condition of the backfill and thus its suitability for the proposed stabilisation. Selection of the preferred solution for detailed review.
Poleng Field
