  • Berri & Marjan Project: Multiple Jacket Lifts
    October 2017

    BACKGROUND

    In October 2017 KTL Offshore was awarded the contract to design, manufacture and test 22 heavy lift slings for an offshore contractor under a long-term agreement signed with Saudi Aramco. The contract is for 17 jackets – the steel frames supporting the processing platform – for the Berri and Marjan oilfields in the Arabian Gulf. Of the 17 platforms to be built and lifted into place, will be for the Berri and 8 for the Marjan fields.

    Under the six-year LTA, contractors will be responsible for delivering a number of offshore oil and gas producing platforms, tie-in platforms, pipelines, power cables, and all the related facilities, as required under the current master plan for Saudi Aramco's offshore fields.

    Due to their compact terminations, lighter weight and easier handling characteristics as compared to hand spliced cable laid slings, the customer selected the KimLock® resin terminated cable laid sling as their preferred choice for this project.

    SCOPE OF SUPPLY:

    4x KimLock® cable laid resin terminated sling; 7.91” (201mm) dia; CSBL 1,671MT; nominal length 95ft (28.9m).
    8x KimLock® cable laid resin terminated sling; 7.91” (201mm) dia; CSBL 1,671MT; nominal length 100ft (30.5m).

  • Shah Deniz Full Field Development (FFD) Project Stage 2
    February 2017

    KimLift™ Synthetic Slings – Deep Water

    Installation

    DATE

    February 2017

    BACKGROUND

    KTL Offshore was awarded the scope of supply for 12x KimLift™ synthetic heavy lift slings to be used for the installation of deep water jackets in the Caspian Sea. The KimLift™ slings were selected due to their light weight, high strength and extreme durability and unparalleled successful track record in the heavy lift industry. The KimLift™ slings are made using HMPE synthetic material, having the same strength as the equivalent sized steel wire rope sling. When used subsea the slings have neutral buoyancy increasing hook payload as well as operational efficiency. Using our Engineered Length Control™ technology the slings were produced to 0.25% length tolerance (under load).

    The Shah Deniz field is located 90 kilometres offshore Azerbaijan in water depths of up to 550 meters. The Full Field Development project undertaken by BP is one of the largest gas development projects in the world.

     

    SCOPE OF SUPPLY:

    6x KimLift™ synthetic round slings; MBL 1,447 metric tons; 128mm; nominal length16.4 meters.

  • NASR Full Field Development Project: Multiple Jacket Lifts
    January 2017

    BACKGROUND
    In November 2016 KTL Offshore was awarded the contract to design, manufacture and test 22 heavy lift slings for the jacket lifting phase of the NASR project in Abu Dhabi. Due to their compact terminations, lighter weight and easier handling characteristics as compared to hand spliced cable laid slings, the customer selected the KimLock™ resin terminated cable laid sling as their preferred choice for this project.

  • Badamyar Project: 2,000t Topside Heavy Lift
    December 2016

    BACKGROUND
    The combination of KTL Offshore’s innovative and pioneering technology in synthetic sling development and successful track record in the offshore heavy lift industry resulted in the award to design, manufacture and supply KimLift™ synthetic slings for the Badamyar topside installation project. These slings were selected over traditional steel slings due to their lighter weight which effectively increased the lifting capacity of the crane; as well as due to the difficult nature of the lifting job which involved placing two topside modules side by side on the jacket.

    This ground breaking project utilized what we believe to be the largest synthetic slings ever manufactured and used for a topside lift to date. The two modules weighed approximately
    2,000 metric tons each and were transported from the fabrication yard in Korea to site in Myanmar with the slings installed. The slings were manufactured as matched sets to 0.25% length tolerance (at load) using KTL’s Engineered Length Control™ technology. Individual proof load testing was conducted using our KimTest 3000 test bed, one of the largest and longest in the industry.

    The topsides were installed in somewhat adverse weather conditions and both were completely suspended between hook and jacket using the KimLift™ slings for up to five hours. The lifting and mating of both modules was completed successfully and without major incident. From a sling perspective, this project was the result of years of R&D, engineering and experience combining to deliver a spectacular result. It also demonstrated the suitability of KimLift™ synthetic slings for the most critical offshore lifting operation!

  • Prelude FLNG Project
    January 2016

    KTL Offshore was contracted to supply one of the highest capacity synthetic slings ever manufactured to date for the lifting of certain equipment used to construct the massive Prelude FLNG vessel. The KimLift™ slings were designed and manufactured in Singapore and proof load tested on our KimTest 3000 test bed at our facility in Malaysia. The design and development of these synthetic slings represented a breakthrough in technology for synthetic slings, due to the required strength and length of the slings. The KimLift™ slings were manufactured with Engineered Length Control™ for length accuracy under load. The load bearing structure of the slings was constructed using the most advanced HMPE yarn and spun into the optimum design at our Singapore facility. Each sling was supplied with Cordura outer body protection and a higher strength cover protection at each eye. 

    The Prelude FLNG is the world's first floating liquefied natural gas platform as well as the largest offshore facility ever constructed. It is 488 metres (1,601 ft) long, 74 metres (243 ft) wide, and made with more than 260,000 tonnes of steel. At full load, it will displace more than 600,000 tonnes, more than five times the displacement of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. The hull was launched in December 2013.
