Swiber successfully installs world’s southernmost platform project in South America

It was completed amid challenging weather conditions.

The global offshore firm has completed the multi-million dollar platform and subsea pipeline installation project in South America.

According to a press release by Swiber, the project, considered to be the world’s southernmost, was awarded in September 2013 and was for the jacket and topside installation of a wellhead platform and its 24” and 4” pipelines of 70 kilometres each.

“The scope of work included transportation and installation of the platform as well as two subsea pipelines spanning 70 kilometres each,” the press release said.

The offshore platform structure and line pipes for the project were transported from Spain and France by cargo barges on a dry tow vessel and by bulk carriers respectively, Swiber said.

“Swiber has been securing new contracts amid a more challenging market and new contract wins have boosted the Group’s order book to a record US$1.5 billion as at 13 November 2015,” the press release added.
