AAL completes Australian ship-to-ship operation

AAL has completed a three-month offshore pipe haul and ship-to-ship operation for the Greater Enfield subsea oil project on behalf of TechnipFMC.

The multipurpose shipping operator delivered Thermotite ‘ULTRA’ subsea pipes and other equipment to the project in Western Australia.

The cargo was loaded onto the 19,000 dwt, S-Class AAL Nanjing in the Malaysian ports of Kuantan and Tanjung Langsat. The vessel was, however, mobilised from Singapore where a tailor-made accommodation block was installed in Jurong Port. 

The vessel operated offshore in the Exmouth Gulf for 71 days, transferring cargo to two platform supply vessels and Technip’s pipe layer/installation vessel.

Namir Khanbabi, AAL’s chartering and operations director, explained: “This was a major offshore operation in one of Australia’s most important offshore oil production projects. It was very challenging in terms of quality control and the environmental, health and safety compliance associated with operating offshore in the Exmouth gulf for so many days, transferring cargo ship-to-ship and accommodating not just our crew, but 12 extra passengers. This included strict ballast and waste management regulations and the constant well-being of all the personnel on board.”
