Today the Equinor Peregrino phase 2 jacket has been skidded onto the H-542 at the Heerema Vlissingen yard.
Heerema Fabrication Group signed the Procurement & Construction contract of the Peregrino II jacket mid-May 2017.
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 jacket is 135 metres tall, has a footprint of 66 x 53 metres and will weigh 9,300 tonnes (excluding the 12 piles). Construction started in November 2017.
