Black Sea Oil & Gas installs gas platform off Romania
Romanian energy company Black Sea Oil & Gas (BSOG) has installed its Ana offshore production platform in the Black Sea, according to a report by Romania-insider.
BSOG said that the Ana platform was the first offshore platform built and installed in Romania in the past 30 years. Following the installation of the subsea pipeline and the jacket earlier this year, the remaining topside has now been successfully installed by GSP some 120 km (75 miles) offshore at the field location, in 70 metres (230 ft) water depth.
The Ana platform is a 3,000 tons gas production platform, consisting of a jacket that sits mainly underwater and a three-deck topside above the water. The gas coming from the Ana and Doina reservoirs are collected and measured on the platform, then delivered to the onshore gas treatment plant through a 122 km subsea and almost 4.8 km onshore pipeline.
The platform holds minimum equipment and will be completely unmanned. With all the infrastructure now installed, hook-up and commissioning will t ake place next, ahead of the expected drilling campaign in November this year.
