Elgood to Blythe & Blythe to Thames, Pipeline Installations



This NtM relates to the installation of two pipelines from Elgood to Blythe and Blythe to Thames, in the UK sector of the southern North Sea.


Independent Oil and Gas (IOG) will be installing two gas pipelines in the southern North Sea, a 6-inch diameter pipeline from the Elgood field to the Blythe field and a 12-inch pipeline from the Blythe field to a tie-in point on the existing Thames pipeline. 

 

The area is in the UK Sector off the Norfolk coast.

 

During the second half of 2020 works will include surveys in advance of the pipeline installation, protecting sections of existing pipelines in readiness for the crossing by the new 12-inch pipeline, and the laying and trenching (burial) of the two pipelines.

 

Pipeline Installation Operations

Will be performed from the DP vessel Seven Navica,

Call-sign: M2HR7

MMSI: 232419000

LOA: 109 metres 

Breadth: 22 metres

 

The vessel will be installing a pipeline from her stern and deploying a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in the water, which will severely restrict her ability to manoeuvre.

 

Pipeline Protection and Testing Operations

Shall be performed by the dynamically positioned (DP) vessel Seven Falcon,

Call-sign: 2EEN9 

MMSI: 235 084 424

LOA: 120 metres 

Breadth: 23 metres

 

The vessel will be using a crane to install heavy subsea equipment and deploying a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in the water, this will severely restrict her ability to manoeuvre.

 

Pipeline Burial Operations

Will be performed from the DP vessel Grand Canyon III,

Call-sign: LACJ8

MMSI: 257010590

LOA: 128 metres 

Breadth: 25 metres

 

The vessel will be deploying and operating a trenching machine from a midships position and may simultaneously deploy a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in he water, which will severely restrict her ability to manoeuvre.

 

Prior to burial of the pipeline the vessel shall be performing other preparatory works over the pipeline routes.

 

Pipeline Protection Operations

 

Shall also be performed by the dynamically positioned (DP) vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant,

Call-sign: LXUD

MMSI: 253 351 000

LOA: 95 metres

Breadth: 22 metres

 

The vessel will be deploying rock protection at specific positions on the 12-inch pipeline whilst maintaining position using DP; this will severely restrict her ability to manoeuvre.

 

General:

 

Whilst performing these activities the vessels shall either be static or moving at an approximate speed of <1 knot. Vessel heading may not be indicative of direction of travel and operations will be conducted on a 24-hour basis.

 

The development area is being monitored by guard vessels MV Ardent and MV Moremma, which can be contacted on: VHF Ch. 16 for advice.

 

It is requested that all vessels within the area maintain a safe distance (500m) and pass at reduced speed.

 

Throughout these operations the vessels will be displaying the shapes and lights prescribed in the International Rules for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) Rule 27, (Vessels not under command or restricted in their ability to manoeuvre).

 

Location: Elgood to Blythe 6-inch Pipeline

Dropped Mattress - Shell 34" Pipeline



The 6th mattress for the Shell 34” pipeline will be recovered between 14th November - 31st January 2021 by the Seven Falcon. The Fleximat dimensions are 6.4m x 3.0m x 0.5m Weight in Air 15860kg.


During overboarding of the 6th mattress for the Shell 34” pipeline, the crane wire parted when the matt was entering the splash zone at approx. 25m above seabed. The Fleximat dimensions are 6.4m x 3.0m x 0.5m Weight in Air 15860kg.

 

The mat was being overboarded 15m away from the 34” pipeline, the mattress and frame landed on the seabed 6m away from the 34” pipeline

  • Fleximat 6.4x3.0x0.5m 2.4 & 3.2te/m3 Concrete Mattress – Weight in Air 15860kg
  • Mattress Lift frame – 6.3x2.4m – Weight in Air 1.7te
  • Approx. 25m Crane wire
  • 0.5t Crane Block

25m Crane wire and 0.5te Crane Block safely recovered 13:50, 08/09/20.

 

Plan is to recover mattress but inspections into the current state of the mattress are required to determine a suitable recovery methodology.

 

A marine licence (ML/634) application has been submitted and approved by BEIS,  A variation to extend the marine licence to 14th November 2020 was approved by BEIS on 2nd November, and a second variation for extension to 31st January 2021 is now pending with BEIS.  This is due to scheduling delays due to poor weather.  The mattress frame and mattress will now be recovered by the Seven Falcon offshore support vessel.

Temporarily Uncovered Mattresses- Seagull/Madoes Umbilical Crossing



Temporarily Uncovered Mattresses- Seagull/Madoes Umbilical Crossing Location. Recently placed mattresses that have been deployed could pose a snagging hazard. This will be rectified (via rock placement) within the next 10 days.


As part of the Seagull development, mattresses have been deployed across the Madoes/Seagull Umbilical crossing location that will be covered by rock placement. Until the rock placement takes place, these mattresses could pose a snagging hazard- this is believed to be unlikely due to their design and placement within a naturally created trench but this alert is a precautionary measure. 

 

For information, the rock placement will take place over the next 10 days and this notice will be closed following confirmation of completion of operations.

Abandoned Well - 15/22-16



This wellhead has been removed from the seabed.


The Wellhead has been cut ~11ft below seabed. An explosive charge was subsequently used to free the wellhead for recovery. A seabed clearance survey has been completed to a radius of 100m via ROV and the seabed has been confirmed to be clear and reinstated. A seabed Clearance Certificate has been issued.

 

Contrary to the original plan, the wellhead has not been recovered. Following a successful controlled explosive severance detonation it is probable that the stump has relocated into  a void that was created during the detonation at the cutting depth below the seabed surface, that was big enough to swallow the length of cut casing. The subsequent 100 metre radius ROV search of the well area failed to identify any presence of the wellhead, hence the operation was terminated without wellhead recovery, and the abandonment is considered complete.

Breagh Pipelines - Exposed Fibre Optic Cable



The Breagh fibre optic cable (PL2770) is exposed on the seabed along various stages of the route between Redcar and the Breagh A platform.


A scallop dredger became snagged on an exposed section of the fibre optic cable in June 2019 causing serious damage to the fibre optic cable and subsequently had to abandon retrieval of his gear for safety reasons.  This notification is made to the fishermen, operating between Redcar and the Breagh A platform, to be advised that the fibre optic cable represents a serious snag risk to both scallop dredgers and static gear fishing in the vicinity of the line.

 

Fishermen are advised to stay away from the line to avoid the risk of becoming snagged on the unburied sections of cable.
