Seismic 2D Survey - RDI21 - MCG21001 (August operations)



Geoex MCG will be acquiring the Regional Deep Imaging Project 2021 (RDI21) between May and September 30th, 2021. The survey is a cross border 2D seismic survey in Norway, UK, Faroe Islands and Denmark.


The aim of the survey is to image deep seated crustal structures in the North Sea and a single source of 6,270 cu.in and one cable of 12 km length towed at 15-30m depth (slant) will be used. The survey will be carried out by the seismic vessel M/V Akademik Lazarev (UAJS) and Jan van Gent (YJVF4) will be the support vessel.

 

There will be two FLOs onboard, one Norwegian from Geograf Maritime and one from SFF Service Limited (Scottish Fishermen's Federation). In addition, the vessel will have MMO and PAM operators onboard. 

 

Since RDI21 is a very regional survey, there will be some flexibility in deviating from the preplotted survey lines, if needed.

  

* The survey has been divided into several notices where each notice contains the lines that are planned to be acquired within the time frame specified in the heading. The .png map shows the full RDI21 2D survey outline.

Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) Operations - Southern North Sea



Operations of a remotely piloted Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) are planned off the Norfolk Coast. The activity will take place between Friday 10th of June for up to 10 days until 20th June 2021, subject to weather conditions.


The USV will be mobilised from Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club, Lowestoft where it will transit to/from the area of operation. During the operation the USV will be performing a Hydrographic Survey of the area shown below

 

A support vessel “WM Poseidon” will escort the USV throughout the operations from the harbour entrance and will then continue transiting towards the survey site until the area is safe & clear of hazards.

 

It is requested that other vessels remain clear, so far as is practicable, during transit & survey operations.

 

Although the vessel is uncrewed, it is managed throughout the 24hour operation piloted remotely using 360 degree cameras and other navigational aids.

 

Vessel Details:

  • Name:       X-09 UNCREWED
  • MMSI:        232027632
  • Length:      4.5m
  • Beam:       2.2m
  • Speed:       3.5kts
  • Draught:   1.0m

Tonnage:  750kg

 

The USV sends real time images and situational awareness data over satellite to a team of operators keeping watch and controlling the vessel remotely 24/7. Seafarers are asked to avoid contact with the vessel and be aware of the operational area during this perio

    The Northern Producer FPF has been removed from it’s moorings and towed to port for decommissioning but the subsea assets within the Northern Producer FPF 500m zone will remain in place on the seabed and could pose a snag hazard to fishermen therefore the Thistle Alpha Platform ERRV will act as a guard vessel until the 500m zone clearance is performed in 2022.

     

    This includes the 8 No Risers draped over the Mid Water Arch (MWA), the MWA Clumpweight Guide Frame, the Riser Base Structure (RBS) and the surface laid pipelines / Umbilicals.  The MWA will remain in the water column at a depth of 112m and will remain tethered to the seabed via the clumpweight guide frame. The risers will remain draped over the MWA with one end on the seabed and the other end will remain connected to the RBS so that they remain stable. The existing stabilisation mattresses will remain in place over the surface laid pipelines/umbilicals.

    NW Schooner Subsea Well - Missing Debris Cap



    The Debris Cap for the NW Schooner subsea well has been identified as missing, leaving the wellhead more vulnerable to snagging on fishing nets. The Debris Cap is 4.5m x 3.9m x 1.4m and approx 3.5 tonnes, whilst the wellhead stands 6m off the seabed.


    The approximate dimensions of the Debris Cap is 4.5m x 3.9m x 1.4m with a weight of approximately 3.5 tonnes. It is not known whether the Debris Cap is lying within a 500m zone of the well. A 200m x 200m area centred on the well has been searched, with no sight of it. Therefore the exact location of the Debris Cap is unknown. The loss of the Debris Cap leaves the NW Schooner wellhead more vulnerable to snagging from trawler/fishing nets. The approximate size of the tree with over trawl legs deployed is 7.8m x 7.8m x 6m high.

    Snagging Hazard - Dropped Object Weight 115kg



    Wireless telemetry basket containing measuring 1.4 m x 1.4 m and weighs 115 kg when submerged.


    As part of the initial drilling operations in 2019, the wellhead assembly was fitted with a cap containing a transponder for the relaying of monitoring data from downhole gauges and a basket was placed on the seabed adjacent to the well containing associated wireless telemetry equipment. 

     

    It has now been observed that both the cap and the basket are no longer present. 

     

    PFML are on location conducting an ROV based visual inspection of the suspended Well 205/26b-14 in the Lincoln field west of Shetland.  The Olympic Taurus arrived at the well location and deployed the ROV for inspection at the seabed.  On inspection neither the cap or basket were present.

     

    No instances of snagged fishing gear or other debris have been identified on the wellhead. 

     

    The risk is that trawled gear may snag on the basket and cause damage.  It is expected that he basket is too light to trap the vessel and cause any significant threat.  The cap is smaller, so there is a risk the nets may lift the cap to surface and cause a risk to personnel on the vessel.  However, as the cap is now off the wellhead, it is likely to be sitting flush with the seabed and is unlikely to be picked up by gear working in this area, as it is typically designed to bounce over the top of seabed obstacles (like the many boulders in the area). 

     

     

    The vessel and ROV has conducted a search around the well, 250 m x 250 m grid with 20m line spacing, and not identified the objects.

     

    PFML intend to go back to abandon the well this year, which would include an as left survey, so further efforts will be made then to locate and recover.  If not found, no other action will be taken.

    Plan is to recover mattress but inspections into the current state of the mattress are required to determine a suitable recovery methodology.

     

    A marine licence (ML/634) application has been submitted and approved by BEIS,  A variation to extend the marine licence to 14th November 2020 was approved by BEIS on 2nd November, and a second variation for extension to 31st January 2021 is now pending with BEIS.  This is due to scheduling delays due to poor weather.  The mattress frame and mattress will now be recovered by the Seven Falcon offshore support vessel.
