HMC to Install Chinook Infield Flowlines

Petrobras America Inc, a subsidiary of Petrobras and Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) signed a contract on November 2 for the installation of the Chinook infield flowlines.

The two Pipe-in-Pipe flowlines are 12 miles long each with a 14-inch Casing Pipe carrying a 9-inch Inner Pipe and will be installed in water depths ranging from 8000 to 8800 ft (2440 - 2680 meters) in the Walker Ridge area in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the Phase I Cascade Chinook Deepwater development.

The Chinook flowlines form part of a multi-field development, which will make use of an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) unit, a first in the US Gulf of Mexico. The Chinook Pipe-in-Pipe project is scheduled for offshore execution in Spring 2009.
