Chevron Frade Field Subsea Development

Due to SPT Offshore's SAPS-003 with intergated lift and handling frame, an average complete suction pile installation of only 7 hours per pile was met at a water depth of 1,100m. A full survey and positioning system was integrated in the SAPS-003 pump, saving fabrication costs and offshore handling time.

Scope of work

  • Detailed design of suction piles for the mooring of subsea risers
  • Fabrication of suction piles in Brazil
