World First – Floating Production: West Seno Field Indonesia

When the mooring for Asia’s first deep water hydrocarbon development reached the end of its life earlier than expected, AMOG was engaged to engineer a solution suitable for another 20 years of operation. In a world first, the mooring of an on-stream production facility in deep water was redesigned, upgraded and replaced, without interruption to operations or deferred production.

  • Seno AQWA

Working closely with Chevron from concept through to installation, and drawing on AMOG’s skill in finding innovative solutions to complex problems, the project was completed:

  • Without reportable injuries,
  • On schedule
  • Without interruption to production or to a pre-planned tender-drilling campaign on the adjacent TLP

AMOG was awarded an Engineers Australia Award of Excellence for the work on this project.
AMOG’s role included:

  • Concept evaluation and selection
  • Design of the replacement mooring system
  • Installation Planning
  • Suction Pile Design
  • Achieving of mooring system certification
  • Offshore supervision and support
