SPT announced to be engaged in cooperation with COOEC (Chinese Offshore Oil Engineering Corporation) to provide the full installation services including all related engineering and preparations for a total of 19 suction piles to CNOOC for the Liuhua 16-2/20-2/LH21-2 field development and Husky Lihua29-1 field development projects in the South China Sea.
SPT Offshore will be using its SAPS-008 suction pump with an integrated lifting and upending tool for suction piles up to 300 mt in weight. The SAPS-008 provides a high flow up to 600 m3/hr and pressures up to 5 bar for fast and efficient installation.
Furthermore the suction pump is equipped with a large vent valve of 40 inch and a bulls-eye, which makes it no longer required to outfit each suction pile separately. This provides a reduce in the suction pile fabrication costs.
