Kiewit-Kvaerner Contractors (KKC) hereby invites interested parties to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) related to the future issuance of Requests for Qualifications and subsequent Requests for Tender for the following Scope of Work/Supply/Services package in connection with KKC’s EPC services for the Hebron GBS Project in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The Hebron Platform consists of a concrete Gravity Based Structure (GBS) and integrated Topsides. The mating of the GBS and Topsides will be completed in inshore waters at Bull Arm, NL, Canada. After the hook-up phase at Bull Arm, the Hebron platform will be towed and installed at its final location, the Grand Banks, Offshore Newfoundland, Canada. In order to complete the tow to field operations, KKC has a requirement for the following vessel fleet:
SM747A – Supply of Towing Fleet – Tow to Field
The Towing Fleet requirement includes the supply of up to ten (10) highly maneuverable AHT vessels to tow the Hebron platform to its offshore installation location. A maximum of seven (7) leading tow vessels are required to have a combined minimum bollard pull of 1350Te. Three (3) trailing vessels are required to have a bollard pull of not less than 170Te each. Due to the restricted capacity of all towing point connections, the maximum applied load has an upper limit of 245Te.

The Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV) will be required to support the Hebron Tow-to Field operations and associated offshore subsea works. The OSV shall be a subsea construction vessel of the AHT type including two work class ROVs and an active heave compensated crane. In addition to performing subsea construction/invention scopes, the OSV shall also act as an escort and spare tow vessel for the Hebron Platform towing fleet and meet the aforementioned tow criteria referenced above.
SM851 - Supply of Installation Vessel for Offshore Station Keeping System ‐ Tow to Field
One (1) AHT vessel will be required for the installation of the offshore station keeping system. This scope will include, but not be limited to, the pre-installation and pull test of four (4) 15Te – 20Te rig anchors at the Hebron field. A minimum 200Te certified bollard pull is required for this vessel.
The anticipated delivery window for the complete fleet of vessels is planned for mid-April 2017 thru July 2017.

The Hebron Project has a vendor database that is used to identify possible suppliers and contractors to participate in the project. Suppliers and contractors are encouraged to register.
ExxonMobil Canada Properties, operator of the Hebron Project, will use the database beyond development/construction, into the operations phase of the project. We also see value in expanding use of the database to the Hibernia and Hibernia Southern Extension projects, as well as project co-venturers and co-owners should they request information. The increased visibility to three major projects and other noted industry participants may be of value to your organization as it has the potential to increase future procurement opportunities.
DISCLAIMER: By registering your company in the vendor database, you are consenting to making your information available to the parties noted above in addition to the Hebron Project.
NOTE: Registration in the database does not imply that a supplier or contractor is approved as a qualified supplier, nor does it indicate that a supplier or contractor is included on any tender or bid list for the supply of goods or services for which it has registered.
