Hallin secures EnQuest contract

Hallin Marine has secured a contract with EnQuest for an inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) project in the UK Sector of the North Sea. The work will include full structural inspection activities as well as a number of repair and maintenance operations at EnQuest’s Thistle Alpha Platform. Hallin will provide its Stril Explorer DP2 multipurpose support vessel which is equipped with a modular air dive system supported by a daughter craft, Quasar Compact WROV and Lynx inspection-class ROV, plus a fully integrated interactive data acquisition and reporting system to complete the works.
“This contract award from EnQuest, which is the largest UK independent oil producer in the UK North Sea, is a major achievement for our team,” details Hallin West’s Managing Director Mr Jonathon Parkes. “Hallin will provide EnQuest with all onshore and offshore support functions for air diving and remotely operated vehicle based inspection services from the Stril Explorer.”
The Thistle Alpha platform was built at the Graythorp Dry Dock, Teesside (since renamed TERRC) and installed in 1976. It is a fixed installation, which consists of a 60-slot drilling and production platform. Oil from the Thistle and Deveron reservoirs is recovered by platform wells and processed through a two-stage production separation system. Oil is imported from the Dons field via an 8-inch pipeline and combined with oil produced by the Thistle platform. The combined oil production is exported from the Thistle platform through a 16-inch pipeline through the Brent Pipeline System.
