Woodside is using the converted trading tanker Berge Helene, which was built as a tanker at Chantiers de L’Atlantique in France and is now owned and operated under a service agreement with Bergesen Offshore, of Norway.It is designed to withstand the 100yr storm condition of 6.1m waves. The Berge Helene has a storage capacity of up to 1.6 million barrels of oil.
The vessel is powered by two Stal-Laval steam turbines, which total 32,445bhp. These are linked by triple and double-reduction gears to a single screw shaft. The ship has a service speed 16 knots.
In 2001-02, the tanker was converted at the Jurong shipyard in Singapore.
Berge Helene was re-classified by Det Norske Veritas and approved for use as a permanently moored vessel for oil field production for at least another ten years.
It appears that the Chinguetti field is now being decommissioned. Perhaps she'll be heading for the breakers given her age.
