Tambikai Topside moved by BBC Chartering
March 2015 - TL Offshore, a subsidiary of one of Malaysia’s largest oilfield services providers SapuraKencana, successfully delivered the transport & installation contract (T&I) of a Central Processing Platform for Tembikai Oil Project, a marginal field development approximately 93 miles (150 kilometers) east of Terengganu, offshore Peninsular Malaysia.
As carrier of choice BBC Chartering provided the transportation and lifting services for this project. The scope included the transport of the 500mt heavy topside and its flare boom which was loaded from a barge in Ingleside, Texas. After completion of the voyage to Kuantan, Malaysia, the topside was discharged at Tembikai offshore field through a 90° double banking operation onto the installation crane vessel “SK2000”. To ensure safe cargo operations, an integrated approach to planning and execution was jointly followed by BBC Chartering and TL Offshore also supporting the project’s timely completion.
The BBC Amber is one of nine 14,800dwt heavy lift vessels operated by BBC Chartering which feature a lifting capacity of 800mt.
