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.
