Engineering work has already started and pipeline routes confirmed along with trenching and pipelay assessment, this is Feed work but has begun now non the less. Don't have all the details just snippets Conversation have also been had with pmo months ago regarding tieback to the assets, hur have been planning for potential outcomes for months, their not sitting in the office ideally waiting for results
adoubleuk In an earlier post, you reckoned that FFD for GLA would need 3 or 4 $Billion. Catcher cost $1,6 Billion and Sealion ( if/when it ever gets done ) will cost $1.8 Billion. So why do you think GLA will cost as much as the other 2 put together.
GWA plans are already being looked at by hur, technip are looking at pipeline routes as we speak for tying back to existing infrastructure in the area, or so I'm lead to belive! I'm pretty sure is solan or another pmo asset they are trying to utilise
In the next month or two I'd expect to see an rns saying that technip have been awarded a contract to install a tieback to solan, utilising pmo storage unit on solan as its under utilised by the solan asset Dyor
"But I digress, ever connection in a subsea stack if api flanged, you may not see it because its a studded block but its still flanged, and obviously this is terminated with a wellhead connector to match the tree your connecting too"
Yes. Agree. Fact. And yes, the whole subsea BOP stack is put together and tested onshore, and consists of flanged connections.
But you're still missing the point. It's the wellhead connector (an H4 or similar, as Wellwell said) that's the 'closest' to being vaguely comparable to the 'connection' between an FPSO mooring buoy and the turret. But it's only 'comparable' in the sense that one might make a similar comparison with the 'docking' connectors that latch a Soyuz to the Space Lab. Or screwing a lighbulb into its socket. Or sex, come to that.
All completely different things, though.
The discussion evolved from some daft rumour about moving the Aoka Mizu elsewhere. And that's all it is, a daft rumour dreamed up by some keyboard jockey on this or another BB. There may be a grain of truth that other FPSO's are being given some consideration, but (assuming Warwick comes in), it'll be for GWA, almost certainly. 'Cos if a FFD is going to happen, all the signs are it'll be on GWA first, not GLA.
The majority of things like buoys are also laser scanned by surveyors now a days too, so along with drawings and as builts you will have point cloud data that you can utilise if you were to try this, can't see them doing it but it wouldn't be impossible
adoubleuk A well control package consists of a wellhead connector bolted to a series of other spool and equipment such as a BOP, all the connection in this package are API flanged, only the wellhead connector has a mandrel, stick to what you know, As you have said these are made within API tolerance as are flanges, and the reason you know it will work is not because the right procedures.... Its because every well control package needed to be tested Onshore prior to getting its 3rd party sign off, this include numerous pressure and function testing which means you need a mating mandrel for your connector to test against, this will also have numerous pressure and function tests prior to deployment with a test mandrel. But I digress, ever connection in a subsea stack if api flanged, you may not see it because its a studded block but its still flanged, and obviously this is terminated with a wellhead connector to match the tree your connecting too
I'm sorry, but Wellwell is correct on this one. A SUBSEA BOP connects to the wellhead with a connector such as the H4. OK, a SURFACE BOP may be a flange connection, but given the Hurricane context of discussions here, let's keep things subsea.
However this particular digression (about BOP connectors) stems from discussion about a different FPSO being able to use the AM's buoy, which is an idea I still rate as being absurd. No halfway intelligent engineer would try such a thing, and no finance dept with the least sense of due diligence and appraising the risk factors would approve such a daft plan.
But a subsea hub connector (or a surface flange) is a mass-produced object. There are thousands (no, millions) around. Manufactured to close (and standardised) tolerances, for sure. But the tolerances are such that there's nevertheless some 'wriggle room' built-in, so that assuming the right procedures are applied, such things will fit together fine, first try.
I maintain that FPSO buoy / turret mooring / loading systems are NOT mass-produced items. They're one-offs.
Haha is that a case of the police letting the small crimes go to catch the big fish, Sorry for the terrible chat I'm a couple bottles of red deep today, forced to the booze looking at the hur sp!! Can't wait to see a gusher on our next drill and watch the share price increase 2% before failing 10% in the days after, happy times ahead. Long term still a winner tho!

Minutiae, we’ve established, is the plural of minutia and also far more common in prose than the singular minutia. There is, however, confusion over the pronunciation of both the singular and the plural, and the confusion may be leading some to use the singular minutia where the plural minutiae is called for.
This is a fixed penalty notice on account of your illegal use of 'minutia' instead of 'minutiae.' You will be relieved to learn that, as it is a first offence, you are being issued with a caution. We would, however, warn you that it's still 'Three strikes and you're out!'
I'm glad we cleared that up. Sometimes it easier to assume people are not interested in the minutia but sometimes this leaves ambiguous info. You're quite right to pull me up although in reality we are on the same page.
