Aquaterra Energy has been awarded a FEED contract by DeNovo Energy for a second Sea Swift platform to be located in the Zandolie field, off of the west coast of Trinidad and Tobago. The award follows on from Aquaterra Energy’s successful design, build and installation of its Sea Swift conductor supported platform for DeNovo Energy’s first west-coast field development, Iguana, in 2018. That platform was designed and delivered in 10 months. Since then, the Iguana structure has safely produced an average of 80 mmscf of natural gas – recording uptime of 100% in 2020 so far.

The latest project will see Aquaterra Energy apply modifications to the existing Iguana platform, conduct a review of the pipeline infrastructure and design a new single well CSP in 20m water depth destined for Zandolie. This platform is expected to be lighter and smaller than the Iguana structure and will be engineered for drilling and installation via a jack-up rig. Together these measures will significantly reduce project costs.

Sea Swift is a minimum-facility offshore platform, that utilizes innovative structural configurations to reduce the overall footprint of the facility, whilst ensuring the highest standard in platform integrity. The simplified design, reduced steel requirement and focus on using available infrastructure and fabrication facilities keep initial expenditure low, but also mitigate the risks of escalating project costs. The platform offers a low-risk, low-cost route to reduce time to first oil or gas production resulting in lower capital investment – without a compromise on the overall safety of the structure.

The work for DeNovo Energy is expected to be completed in Q3 2020.
