The precise positioning of the Irish Sea Pioneer during planned rig moves has been successfully performed on numerous occasions for Eni, made possible with the many years of expertise within Bibby HydroMap.
Eni has operated in the United Kingdom since 1964, with stakes in 5 production areas. Exploration activities began in Liverpool Bay in 1989 and oil and gas fields were discovered between 1990 and 1992. Production of first gas in the Hamilton North field started in 1995 and, in 1996, production of first oil in the Douglas and Lennox fields. In 2014 Eni reached a 100% stake in the assets of Liverpool Bay, becoming the leading operator.
Bibby HydroMap were contracted by Eni to provide positioning services during the rig move operation.
During the rig move the Nav-Pack system provides real-time information on the th Irish Sea Pioneer position and the relative bearing from the target location.
The final jacked up position of the Irish Sea Pioneer was also recorded.
