FG International Holland Completes Riser Hose Replacement
FG International Holland BV, the Dutch special lifting company, in close cooperation with local partner CR Asia, has replaced the riser hose that forms the centre piece of the Arthit/Bongkot development. After meticulous planning triple redundancy was applied to make sure the replacement would be performed with only minor interruption of the fields’ production.
FG first installed a special lifting construction under the external turret of the FSO Pathamabaha. With the new hose then pre-installed close to its final location, the actual disconnecting and reconnecting was performed within 20 minutes.
