Aquaterra Energy, a global offshore engineering solutions provider, completed the installment of a new Sea Swift platform at the Amal field offshore Egypt, reported Pipeline Magazine.

The client was PICO Petroleum Integrated Services, lead contractor for the development of Amal Petroleum Company’s (AMAPETCO) Amal field in Gulf of Suez, informed Offshore Magazine.

The Sea Swift is a conductor supported platform (CSP) installed in 23 meters of water, featuring 385 metric ton topsides with a helideck and emergency accommodation and provision for six wells.

According to Aquaterra, the scope of work included designing the process, piping, electrical, instrumentation, control system and technical safety features, and design of the new subsea production pipelines to the Amal-A platform.

The project, which took 18 months from design to installation, also involved erecting a bridge link to the neighboring Amal-B platform and reconfiguring the topsides pipework to create a new and improved production profile.

Benefits of Sea Swift system include reduced platform costs, lower installation and intervention costs, and simplified project management. In addition, the designs allow wells to be drilled, completed with dry trees, and installed before the arrival of the main processing platform.
