Offshore staff

TEHRAN, Iran -- The pipelay vessel Abouzar 1200 has started the shore-pull operation for a pipeline for the Froozan oil field in the Persian Gulf, according to Iranian Offshore Engineering Co.

The 600-m (1,968-ft) long, 24-in. (61-cm) sour gas line was pulled from the sea to the shore. Thereafter, the vessel was due to lay the main 103-km (64-mi) pipeline.

An IOEC official added: "This pipeline will deliver the extracted sour gas to Khark Island refinery and the implementation of this pipeline will take some three months.”

He expected a rate of progress of 1- 1.5 km/day (0.6-0.9 mi/d), with another vessel, the C-Master, laying around 54 km (33 mi) of 4- to 18-in. (10- to 45-cm) infield lines.
