BHP Billiton Petroleum is developing the Angostura development located about 35 km off the North East Coast of Trinidad. The facilities will consist of:
Bluewater will design and supply the SPM system, consisting of a square, turret catenary anchor leg mooring (CALM) buoy, the pipeline end manifold (PLEM), submarine and floating hoses for operation in about 26 m of water at a location off the southeastern coast of Trinidad, approximately 4 nautical miles southwest of Galeota Point offshore Guayaguayare Bay. The CALM buoy will accommodate tankers up to 250,000 dwt. The design will have six mooring legs and will be designed in a single product-handling format with a single 20" line and a product distribution system incorporating a fluid swivel unit. Delivery of the CALM system is expected to take place by April 2004.
The engineering, management and procurement will be handled in The Netherlands; parts of the fabrication will be done in Trinidad in support of BHP Billitons stated commitment to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to support the technological development of the engineering and fabrication industry.
