Woodside Energy Limited
Woodside Energy Julimar-Brunello Phase 2 Ocean Apex IWOCS SJDF Deployment
ICON Engineering was engaged by Woodside as part of the Julimar-Brunello Phase 2 project to assist with deploying the Subsea Jumper Deployment Frame (SJDF) through the Ocean Apex moonpool.
Bespoke Engineering, Design, and Installation
This workscope included procurement, installation and hook up of a hydraulic winch for deployment; and design, fabrication, and installation of chutes for the Intervention Workover Control System (IWOCS) umbilical and a Sheave Support Structure (SSS) which cantilevered over the moonpool.
Rope Access Technicians (RATs) were engaged to assist with installation of the SSS and POD roof reelers.
Other modifications included installation of a ‘shark cage’ within the XT Cart which served the triple purpose of assisting landing of the SJDF on the XT cart, deflecting the winch wire and umbilical past the rig’s inboard pontoon, and providing a work platform for clamp fixing.
This innovative design was ultra-fast tracked; an 18-day turnaround from concept development to successful offshore installation and load testing.
This tailored engineered solution made it possible to ‘thread the eye of a needle’ and deploy the SJDF and IWOCs umbilical through the moonpool and safely to the seabed for ROV operations.
