A major maintenance contract for Shell Eastern Petroleum’s Single Point Mooring (SPM) subsea pipeline near Singapore’s Bukom Island has been awarded to the Leighton-Boskalis consortium.
Leighton Offshore and Boskalis Offshore will replace part of the pipeline while also cleaning the existing SPM buoy, hoses, pipeline and dredging and installing replacement parts.
Leighton’s chief executive officer Boyd Merrett says, “We are pleased to be a part of this project with a world-class client like Shell. As with all projects, safety, environment, stakeholder and local authority liaison is paramount. These are all core values and strengths of Leighton and Boskalis and the consortium is united to deliver this project in line with our values and commitment.”
Work has already commenced on engineering, planning and procurement.
“Leighton and Boskalis have strong track records in offshore installation, maintenance and dredging works in Asia, and we look forward to working with Shell to deliver this project,” says Boskalis regional director Neil Haworth.
