INTRODUCTION

ENI are adding an addi onal well ABO-12 to the ABO field, with e backs to the exis ng ABO FPSO at OML 125 and replacing the exis ng ABO-3 Flowline/Riser. The deep water Block OML 125 (previously OPL 316) is located in the western part of the Niger Delta, about 50 to 80km from the Nigerian coast, in water depths ranging from 200 up to

1400m.

CEONA (through Marine Pla orms Limited) has been awarded the Transport and Installa on (T&I) contract for the Load out, Transport, Installa on, Hook up and Pre-Commissioning for the subsea flowlines, umbilical (and its respec ve control systems) and structures.

  • 3.0 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

As part of the ABO 12 project a suc on pile is required to be installed. The pile will be transported to the field in the first vessel transit, this package will cover the seafastening of the pile onto the Normand Pacific Vessel.

The 5m OD pile which is 10m long is to be seafastened standing ver cally. The PLEM stab in base frame is to be a ached to the pile (and will be a ached for li ing and seafastening). The connec on between the frame and pile is a hinge mechanism which has been previously design, the integrity of which for li ing and seafastening is out with PDi's scope and will not be covered within this package.

Doc. Title: Suction Pile Seafastening Calculations Doc. No: PP00011-PDI-DS-CAL-00007 Date: 09/02/15 Rev: C03 Calcs by: SRO

The pile will sit upon a specifically designed grillage which will be seafastened to the deck above large transverse deck girders. The pile will be restrained horizontally by shear stops and will have addi onal con ngency lashing supports (back to deck mounted D links). The con ngency lashing is not as s ff as the shear stops so will not be considered to resist any shear force and are only specified to account for unforeseen occupancies.

The pile will be li ed by using designed li ing padeyes located on top of the suc on pile. The padeyes integrity for the li and deployment loading is out with PDi's scope and will not be checked within this document.

The weight report states, "At this stage of the project it is reasonable to consider as the max expected weight not to be exceeded for the suc on pile (with base frame) the total weight in air plus 10% of uncertainty" [1]

Deck - starboard outer bulb flats

The HP 280 x 12 bulb flats that run inside the cable trunk void (edge of vessel starboard) is supported by a transverse running

s ffening plate located the void (green below). We will claim bearing at the two starboard corners onto the bulb flat,

therefore the s ffeness will be calculated below. The bulb flats will be considered supported with pin supports between these

void plates.

The forward support on frame 56 can only be claimed if there is a strong bearing connec on between the grillage and deck.

As the grillage web sits over the edge of the deck hold down tees (around iso mount) bearing cannot be claimed and this will

cause the load applied to the adjacent e down (deck tee mounted) gussets to exceed the vessel specified allowable UDL load

for deck tees.

To save removing the surrounding deck tees of the iso mount block a s ffener should be retrofi ed to grillage and the grillage

shimmed so a hard bearing against the 30mm plate at the bo om of the iso mount. Thus the bulkhead support can now be

claimed.

For an onerous analysis the two transverse gussets resis ng roll will be analyed and this

will be applicable to the less onerous pitch gussets. Note: Gussets in other planes and

lashing will complement the major restraint gussets, although will not be considered.

Only a horizontal force will be applied to the gusset for analysis. As the gusset is not

welded to the pile the ver cal compressive load will go straight through the web of the

grillage beam. The effects of fric on on the gusset will not be considered.

It is considered due to the proximity to the load applica on that the horizontal shear will be restrained by the the

upper two flange welds (top and bo om of upper flange).

Weld to profile of seafastening beam:

The weld between the gusset and seafastening beam reacts the direct transverse and ver cal loads as well as the bending

loads due to the moment on the connec on.
