Offshore Solutions B.V. (OSBV), the joint venture between AMEC and Cofely Nederland N.V., has commenced operations of its Offshore Access System (OAS) to support personnel transfer to and from the offshore component of the Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) project in Qatar.
 
Pearl GTL, the world’s largest GTL plant, is being jointly developed by Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Shell.
 
OSBV, which completed sea trials in December, was awarded the contract by Qatar Shell GTL Ltd for three years, with an option to extend the contract for a further two years. This is the first GTL facility that OSBV has supported.
 
The OAS is fitted onboard the Bourbon Gulf Star, a DP2, IBC* Type 2 platform supply vessel that will be used to transfer personnel to and from the plant’s two wellhead platforms to execute operations and maintenance work. The OAS will remain connected when personnel are onboard the platforms.
 
The contract was awarded based on the OAS’ proven technology, safety record and the potential to increase operational efficiency. Operating since early 2006, the company has achieved over 5,500 operational connections and in excess of 67,000 personnel transfers without any safety or environmental incidents.
