Three major oil discoveries have recently been made in Blocks 28/9 and 28/10c of the UK North Sea: Catcher, Varadero and Burgman. The fields are located approximately 200 km east of Aberdeen in 85 to 95 m water depth. The turret mooring and fluid transfer system for the proposed Catcher FPSO will be a Submerged Turret Production (STP) system.

BW Offshore has been contracted for the offshore installation of the mooring system and STP buoy and hook-up of the FPSO in field. The Installation of the riser system, pipelines, EHU’s, subsea manifolds and drilling templates has been performed by Subsea 7 in 2016 offshore installation Campaigns.

The mooring system, STP buoy and riser systems were installed in Q2, 2016. The FPSO scheduled to arrive on location for hook-up to the STP buoy in Q3, 2017.
