Peregrino II Jacket contract for Heerema Fabrication Group
Heerema Fabrication Group has been awarded the Procurement & Construction contract of the Peregrino II Jacket by South Atlantic Holding B.V. on behalf of the Statoil Peregrino II project.
Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group, states: “We are delighted that we have been able to secure this contract. With the Valemon jacket, the Gina Krog jacket and the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 Unmanned Wellhead Platform - which we will deliver next month - we have a good track record with Statoil. We are pleased that Statoil still has confidence in the expertise and skills of our company despite the announced reorganization. We will continue to go to any lengths for our client and to build on our strong and pleasant relationship.”
The Peregrino field - discovered in 1994 - is a heavy oil field, situated in the South and South West section of the Campos Basin, approximately 85 kilometres of the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Statoil is the operator of the Peregrino field, which is presently developed with two wellhead platforms and a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO). A system of pipelines, risers and cables connects this FPSO and the two wellhead platforms. The Peregrino Phase II Field Development will add a third wellhead platform, as this area is not accessible by the existing two platforms. It contains an 8-legged jacket and a wellhead platform with a drilling unit (WHP-C) tied-back to the existing FPSO.
The Peregrino jacket will be approximately 135 metres tall, have a footprint of 66 x 53 metres and will weigh 9,300 tonnes (excluding the 12 piles). Construction is due to start in November 2017 at the Heerema yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, in order to be ready for sail away in October 2019. Primary function of the jacket is the foundation for the topside including the drilling and process facilities, utilities, power generation, living quarters and a heli-deck with a design operational weight of 25,000 tonnes. The jacket is also designed for storage of fresh drill water with caissons for submerged pumps connected to such storage tanks. Phase II will enhance production from the Peregrino field by increasing the number of production wells with a total of 21 - 15 oil producers and 6 water injectors - to be drilled from WHP-C. The water depth is approximately 120 metres. The start of the production of Phase II is expected by the end of 2020 and the estimated recoverable resources from this development until the end of 2040, when the concession period will end, are 250 million barrels.
Rosetti Marino S.p.A. and Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) entered into a letter of intent on the 16th of November with the aim to sell to Rosetti Marino the HFG activities at the yard in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands. Rosetti Marino and HFG have worked closely together and in good mutual cooperation to investigate the viability of this proposed sale.

HFG has been struggling for some time with insufficient project volume and marginal profitability. In addition, the risks associated with building topsides are high and clients are not prepared to pay for this risk.
