WHP2 Platform – Eni Congo formalizes the restart of works

After the stop of operations due to the pandemic, in recent days Eni Congo officially restarted the activities relating to the WHP2 platform, more specifically destined to the Nenè offshore field.

In 2019, in JV with the Antonini Group, Proger was awarded the contract for EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) services related to the construction of the WHP2 platform consisting of a six-legged jacket and deck with related systems, transport to the installation site offshore, SIMOPS studios during jack-up drilling operations and plant start-up.

Before the stop, the construction phase of the platform had been completed in the Italian shipyards of Gruppo Antonini and now the activities, to be completed in 2022, are restarting from the very delicate loading phases on barges and transport by sea of the jacket (550 tons) and deck (1,200 tons) and subsequent installation off the Congolese coast, in a water depth of about 30 meters.

The restart of the works represents an important signal in the Oil & Gas sector in the Republic of Congo, a country where Proger has been operating through the Pointe Noire branch for over 10 years.
