Yuri Korchagin all set for flow

Set up to work: the Yuri Korchagin field in the Caspian Sea

US contractor J. Ray McDermott said today it has completed installation of the offshore facilities for Lukoil’s Yuri Korchagin field in the Caspian Sea.

“The field development requires a number of major offshore facilities including an ice-resistant fixed processing platform (LSP-1) and adjacent living quarters (LSP-2) joined together by a 243-foot bridge,” said J Ray in a statement.

Oil from LSP-1 will be delivered to the marine transportation complex which consists of a floating storage offloading system and single point mooring via a 36 mile 12-inch oil pipeline.

J Rays workscope included the transportation and installation of 14 foundation piles for LSP-1, the SPM substructure and its hook up.

Work also included engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation and installation of tie-in spools connecting LSP-1 and the SPM to the 36-mile sub-sea pipeline.

The pipeline was laid by J. Ray under a separate contract with Lukoil in 2008.
