INPEX SURF Project (Australia)

KTL Offshore fabricated heavy lift KimLiftTM synthetic round slings for the INPEX SURF project (subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines).

The slings will be used for this EPCI project including the pre-commissioning of production flowline systems, a MEG injection system, start-up condensate transfer and fuel gas transfer flowline systems, control systems as well as other associated SURF elements in water depths up to 275 meters. The slings were manufactured to exceptionally tight length tolerances using KTL’s trademark Engineered Length Control system and tested to full proof load using our KimTest 3000 test bed.

Daman Development Project (India)

KTL Offshore was awarded the project to supply 12 heavy lift slings for ONGC’s Daman Development Project in the Arabian Sea, offshore India. This EPIC project is expected to be completed in 2017. It will be executed in 2 phases where a total of 8 wellhead platforms will be installed and a network of 101.5km pipelines will be laid. Gas and condensate from the Daman development will be transported to Hazira through Tapti Process facilities of the Tapti-JV (KTL Offshore also previously supplied the heavy lift slings for the Tapti project).

KTL Offshore supplied KimLockTM cable laid slings with resin terminated spliced eyes, which provided the heavy lift contractor with a lighter rigging solution as well as a faster, easier load out and installation due to the compact terminations.

Forward Mounted Base (FMB) Project (Qatar)

KTL Offshore was awarded the heavy lift sling contract for Qatar Petroleum’s FMB (Forward Mounted Base) EPIC project which comprised a living quarter platform and utility platform with a connecting bridge. The project location was in Qatar. The scope of the contract was to supply KimFlexTM braided slings, KimLockTM resin terminated cable laid slings, KimSwageTM Flemish eyes slings as well as cable laid grommets. 

KTL Offshore continues to remain at the forefront of heavy lift sling production and development and continues to push the frontiers in synthetic sling advancement!
