The suction pile wellhead platform was successfully removed from the Ophir field, relocated and re-installed.
The suction piles were pushed out in only 4 hours before the lifting operation commenced. The sheerlegs lifted the entire platform partly out of the water while keeping the jacket submerged at 40 metres. The sheerlegs sailed with the entire platform in the hooks approximately 50 nautical miles to the Jitang field, where the platform was immediately reinstalled. The relocation operation is completed due to the extreme dedication of the SPT offshore team together with its partner Redtech Offshore, the client Vestigo, and Heavy Lift Vessel owner Asian Lift.
