CIS completes Petrofac contract

Conductor Installation Services (CIS) successfully completed a contract for Weatherford Malaysia Sdn Bhd to provide conductor-driving services and associated equipment on behalf of Petrofac.

These services were delivered as part of Petrofac’s plans to develop Block PM304 for production on the Cendor Field Development, and to further expand the Berantai Field Development, which are located offshore Terengganu, Malaysia.

CIS supplied full project management, including personnel and onshore technical support for the entire project, from the fabrication of drive shoes through to the installation of the conductors.  More specifically, CIS was responsible for carrying out drivability studies, fabricating customised drive shoes, welding the drive shoes to the customer’s pipe, and supplying handling and cold cutting equipment.

Working from the GSF Galveston Key and Trident IX jack-up rigs, CIS used a 90kJ hydraulic hammer to drive fifteen 36-inch conductors into the seabed to form part of the foundations of the Cendor B and C platforms, which are key components of this development.

The contract, valued in excess of USD$1 million, was completed by CIS with support from its base in Singapore and global headquarters in Great Yarmouth, England.  Working in water depths to 62 metres, CIS installed all nine conductors in just six days on the Cendor Phase II Development.
