OTL Awarded Another Deepwater Jacket Project

April 2019, OTL won the third party independent verification contract from CNOOC Research Institute (CNOOC RI) for the Lufeng 15-1 and Lufeng 14-4 deepwater jackets. Located in water depth of 286 m in typhoon prone area in South China Sea, Lufeng 15-1 jacket will be one of the very tall jackets in the world and the tallest in Asia with heavy topside. OTL glad to win the contract through open bid process. OTL’s wining of this contract after the winning of the 330 m water depth Liuhua 11-1 Compliant Tower Pre-FEED project marks the industrial recognition of OTL’s deepwater fixed platform design capability.

Compliant Piled Tower Feasibility for CNOOC Liuhua Field Established

March 2019, the Mid-Term Project Review on the Liuhua Compliant Tower Pre-FEED at OTL Houston office by a CNOOC delegation led by Chief Engineer Mr. Zhigang Li has been conducted. OTL presented the design results for the configuration and feasibility cycles, and have had deep technical discussions with client on various design processes, issues and conclusion. OTL’s work so far concluded that Compliant Piled Tower concept is feasible for the CNOOC Liuhua field development and CNOOC delegation agreed. OTL is striding to the next optimization cycle and expect a better configuration can be reached with significant steel saving. Compliant Tower concept is an advanced very deepwater fixed offshore platform concept requiring high knowledge and skill for the analysis and design.
