Aquaterra Energy has been awarded a FEED contract by DeNovo Energy for a second Sea Swift platform to be located in the Zandolie field, off of the west coast of Trinidad and Tobago.


The Zandolie field will be the 2nd natural gas development on the west coast of Trinidad. The first being the DeNovo Iguana development.


DeNovo previously used Aquaterra to design, build and install a Sea Swift conductor supported platform (CSP) for Iguana, in 2018.


According to the Aquaterra, that platform was designed and delivered in 10 months.


The latest project will see Aquaterra Energy apply modifications to the existing Iguana platform, conduct a review of the pipeline infrastructure and design a new single well CSP in 20m water depth destined for Zandolie.


This platform is expected to be lighter and smaller than the Iguana structure and will be engineered for drilling and installation via a jack-up rig.


According to Stewart Maxwell, Technical Director at Aquaterra Energy, “Similar to the Iguana platform, we will seek to provide a design and development solution that will enable DeNovo Energy to maximize fabrication opportunities in-country. We’re thrilled to be partnering with DeNovo on this FEED for a second Sea Swift CSP solution”.


The work for DeNovo Energy is expected to be completed in Q3 2020.
