Satah al-Razboot (SARB) offshore oil eld is located


about 200km northwest of Abu Dhabi. The oil eld is
expected to add an additional 100,000 barrels per day of
oil to the overall oil production capacity of UAE upon
commissioning in 2016.

The sole owner of the eld is the Abu Dhabi National Oil
Company (ADNOC) with ADMA-APCO as the developer.
The front-end engineering and design (FEED) of the
project was carried out by Flour from 2009 to 2011. Up to
180 people were involved in the FEED phase of the
project.

Founded as Wimpey Laboratories in 1966,


FoundOcean has almost half a centurys experience
in subsea and offshore foundation grouting for the
global energy construction industries, while also
undertaking repair and maintenance, structural
inspections, pipeline and cable support and other
services.

Given FoundOceans position as a leading


subcontractor for risk minimisation in global
offshore construction projects, the companys
managing director Jim Bell is well placed to provide
insights into risk analysis and other aspects of
subsea offshore repair work. Offshore-
technology.com met Bell to discuss the challenges of
safety-intensive subsea operations and to nd out
about the companys recently-completed offshore
repair contract for Saipem America in the Gulf of
Mexico.

Rowan Watt-Pringle: How do you go about


minimising the risks of subsea repair work to
ensure an operation is completed safely and on
schedule?

that if something unexpected occurs, it can be dealt
with as a matter of routine. You can have the
fanciest equipment in the world but if its not used in
the right way or if you dont have highly-skilled
personnel then you wont get anywhere.

RWP: What types of technology are involved in


overcoming the challenges faced during these
operations?

JB: The technology that we have in terms of


supporting pipelines in general is well established;
pipelines have been supported by divers since the
1970s, while we rst used remotely operated vehicles
[ROVs] to complete pipeline support instead of
divers 15 years ago for Exxon, offshore of California.

The Exxon job in 1998 wasnt in particularly deep


water; in the years since then we have been
developing, improving and re ning the ROV handling
and installation of grout bags, which are used to
support and stabilise sections of subsea pipeline.

11/1/2017 Satah al-Razboot (SARB) Offshore Oilfield, Abu Dhabi - Offshore Technology

JB: The support process itself for deep water


pipelines is no different; once youve got the bags
down there, the ROV operations are pretty much
identical to an ROV installation in much shallower
water.

The real challenge

RWP: Do you foresee any potential technological


advances that could transform deep sea repair
operations in the future?

JB: I dont think well see any radical changes weve


developed and enhanced our capability over the last
15 or 20 years incrementally, by increasing the water
depth that were con dent working in step by step.

Our current maximum depth is about 1,500m;


because we are approaching potential projects
stepwise, at the moment we would be con dent in
offering only a couple of hundred metres beyond
that point and then, once thats proven, we may take
an additional further step.

Clients in the oil industry, certainly, tend to be wary


of radical new technology, so were always very keen
to show our customers that what theyre using is
already tried and tested. For this reason its more a
story of constant re nement and incremental
improvement, rather than ever being a major step
change.

One of these re nements comes in the form of some


recent improvements we have made to our umbilical

The grout bag was installed after this to provide


additional support to the pipeline due to the extra
weight imposed on it by the clamp.

FoundOcean not only provided a cementing service


for the client, but also the full pipeline support and
cementing service as far as the grout bag was
concerned. A total of 28 tonnes of cement was used:
four tonnes for the clamp and 24 tonnes for the
fabric formwork grout bag.

RWP: Time is clearly an important factor for these


types of operations, due to the loss of productivity
when a pipeline is out of commission. What
timeframe were you working to in the Gulf?

JB: The total time working offshore was three days. A


lot of that time, however, was spent by the client
preparing the pipeline and installing the clamp and
so on. In terms of the amount of time FoundOcean
itself spent mixing and pumping grout, that was
completed in a matter of hours; possibly half a day.
