Projects - SapuraClough: Subsea Protection Frame

June 2013

Origin Energy and their partners are developing the geographe discovery field, approximately 55km offshore from Port Campbell, Victoria.

In November 2012, Keppel Prince was contracted by SapuraClough Offshore Pty Ltd, to fabricate a new subsea tee protection frame which was to replace the existing protection frame.

The protection frame is a structure weighing approximately 16 tonnes and fabricated from 150mm NS pipe and 152 UC.  It included installation aids and guides to help avoid the risk of damage to piping and subsea equipment on the tie-in spools.

Scope also included the supply of grating, lifting slings, surface treatment and delivery to the Port of Portland.
