Their beak, and elongated shape does means that a special approach is required. Most important is the position of the hook. If it’s too far forward you’ll be retrieving half a ballyhoo more often than not. This rig will put the hook well towards the tail of the ballyhoo, and well into the mouth of the predator. First though, as with all baitfish, the ballyhoo must be prepared before the rigging procedure can begin, otherwise it won’t wriggle convincing – and worse, it will probably spin. Here’s how to make sure it will behave as it should Baitfish Preparation To resemble their living brethren, dead bait fish must?
FPSO arrives in Newfoundland, hookup and commissioning underway
Mobilisation and dimensional control measurements were done in the Dubai dockyard. InterMoor Marine and Surveyor Personnel were on board during the installation and hook-up to ensure the operation was carried out properly and safely. InterMoor also procured FPSO aft and forward towing equipment and provided tow masters and surveyors for the offshore operation.
These barges listed are available for purchase of charter, from IMPACT ENTERPRISES.
A maintenance inspection b. A safety and operational inspection The maintenance inspection is geared more to preventative maintenance and identifying those items requiring repairs that will prevent the crane from being in a like new condition or from operating correctly, such as oxidized or cracking paint, sheet metal damage, track pad wear, track roller wear, rubber tire wear, oil levels, oil changes, etc.
The Equipment Superintendent or his representative usually performs this inspection. The safety and operational inspection, on the other hand is more concerned with identifying those items that will either stop a lift during the middle of an operation such as a worn sheave bearing that could freezes to it’s shaft or those items that could possibly lead to a component failure and an accident such as a hoist line with broken wires or a bent boom lacing.
For example, this inspection would not be as concerned with tire wear because all lifts are required to take place on outriggers. However, excessive tire wear would be noted on the inspection report. Both inspections can be and sometimes are done by the same inspection party, but this procedure is geared to the safety and operational inspection and assumes that someone else will complete the maintenance inspection. Cranes should be visually inspected by “a qualified person”.
A qualified person being someone who by virtue of his education and experience is knowledgeable about cranes, crane maintenance and rigging operations. Cranes should be inspected per the crane manufactures recommendations and rigging procedures.

ASX & Media Announcements
The company said the new scope will be executed by Aker Solutions in a split operation model with Kvaerner. The work will primarily consist of planning, management, and hook-up of the Johan Sverdrup utility and living quarter module. It will also include the hook-up work in connection with the phase two modifications of the riser platform.
The area’s recognition has been driven almost exclusively by the Hibernia Field, but that’s about to change. The Terra Nova FPSO floating production, storage, and offloading vessel has arrived at the Bull Arm construction site in Newfoundland for final hookup and commissioning work. Canada’s second largest oil field will be onstream in less than a year.
Terra Nova is located in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin on the Grand Banks in 95 meters water depth and is situated some 35 km southeast of Hibernia and km east-southeast of St. The Terra Nova Field consists of three geologic fault blocks: Through five delineation wells, five major and two minor oil-bearing sands have been identified in the structure at approximately 3, meters. Total reserves for the field have been estimated to be million bbl of oil and Bcf of gas. The Canada-Newfoundland Offshore Petroleum Board has estimated that Graben and East Flank make up the majority of the reserves with an estimated million bbl of oil.
The undelineated Far East portion of the field, if productive, could hold an additional million bbl potential. This compares to million bbl of oil and 1. The field is estimated to have a minimum production life of 15 years.
Wheatstone Offshore Hookup & Commissioning
Dorado is one of the most fun fish to catch in our oceans, their greedy gregarious feeding habits along with the aerial acrobatics when hooked up make this species a firm favourite amongst offshore anglers, not to mention the fact that they also make good table fair. Dorado are surface dwellers and are found offshore in temperate, tropical and subtropical waters all over the world, they are an extremely fast growing species with an average lifespan of around 5yrs, average sizes caught are from Kgs, they can get larger with some fish reaching well over 20Kgs which are usually Bulls and are highly sought after by Sport anglers worldwide.
These fish often swim in small shoals when younger, and the mature ones are usually found in pairs, so you can be sure if you catch a male the female is right there close by.
Partnering with the best towing contractors is a prerequisite, but high-level coordination, detailed planning and seamless execution are also required to ensure that assets arrive at their destination safely, securely and on schedule. In doing so we manage the coordination of up to six separate vessels. All eyes are on the hook-up team, as the other commissioning activities cannot commence until hook-up is complete.
When the pressure is on, you must have a team in place you can absolutely rely on. There are a host of potential, critical pitfalls and few contractors with real experience in the field. DSI are the buoy tow and hook-up professionals.
According to the organisation, the number of failures during drills and inspections which resulted in casualties or injured crew members has been unacceptably high. Launched in , the IMO regulations state that lifeboat release and retrieval systems must be evaluated and replaced no later than 1 July This will involve the complex and costly removal, retrofit and replacement of lifeboat systems globally.
Ampelmann, the global leader in offshore access solutions, is offering its Atlas motion-compensated lifeboat exchange system to the oil and gas industry to provide a faster, safer and more cost-effective alternative to traditional procedures which can be performed within a wider operational window. The Atlas system can also be used to transfer large pieces of equipment and delicate or complex cargo as well as replacing lifeboats to meet personnel on board POB requirements.
Africa Subsea Umbilical and Cable Pre-commissioning Umbilical pre-commissioning is the suite of tests performed from a host facility, usually an offshore platform or a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading FPSO vessel, to confirm the mechanical and structural integrity of newly installed umbilical s and associated infield electrical, hydraulic and, in some instances, fibre optic functional connections. System design and complexity dictate the pre-commissioning testing philosophy and it may prove beneficial to perform sequential testing using a systematic approach, allowing earlier detection and potentially an easier diagnosis of any faults, their type and location.
Pre-commissioning testing is generally performed in accordance with ISO As well as testing, umbilical integrity checking and monitoring can also be performed throughout the transportation and installation phases as well as post installation. The activities described on the following slide are typically performed during and post mechanical completion prior to commissioning as a means of confirming product integrity throughout these crucial phases of the project. Where umbilicals are transported overseas prior to being installed, the required internal core pressures and monitoring equipment pressure relief valve PRV settings are calculated to ensure fluctuations in temperature for the proposed route of transport, as well as seasonal, geographical and storage locations are taken into account.
Lay monitoring of the electrical cables and tubes is performed during the umbilical installation to monitor product integrity until such time as the installation is complete. Remote and wireless systems are used to avoid interfering with reel or carousel rotation, thereby facilitating a continuous lay operation in between periodic stops for pressure compensation required as a result of product cooling.
Post-installation and post-hook up pressure testing is performed using temporary equipment set up within close proximity of the termination point on the host facility, in order to minimise the routing of high pressure test hoses, in particular away from walkways and adjacent worksites where possible.

Hook-Up and Completion Hook-up and completion covers all necessary activities preparing for the start-up of oil and gas production. It is the final phase in preparing new developments or modifications at existing fields to produce first oil.
Offshore hook-up Lesson Offshore Hook up and Commissioning HUC was generally well planned and executed The team responsible for the tow-out and buoy hook-up paid particular attention to quality issues in relation to the resources provided. Extensive interview were held with providers and workshops were held to discuss roles and responsibilities and the processes that would be employed during the various phases of the offshore operations.
A good example was the diving operations associated with the installation of the thrusters. The acceptance procedures for the offshore work were developed with the understanding that there may be some deviations, so when any known problems occurred or were highlighted the procedures were already in place and it was easy for the engineers to continue with their planned tasks. Recommendation Comprehensive planning of offshore HUC scope is very important with clarification of roles and responsibilities essential.
Procedures for the offshore work should be developed with the understanding that there may be some deviations, so when any known problems occurred or were highlighted, alternative procedures were already in place and it was easy for the engineers or crews to continue with their planned tasks.
