BOULDER has been contracted by Heerema for cargo runs and towage of their barge H 302 and Vikingbarge 3 from Flushing to South Arne Field, where Heerema’s HLV BALDER will install a new jacket and topside.
The South Arne platform comprises a combined wellhead, processing and accommodation platform with an oil storage tank on the seabed and buoy loading facilities for oil.
The oil produced is conveyed to an 87,000 m3 storage tank on the seabed. When the tank is full, the oil is transferred to a tanker by means of buoy loading facilities. The gas produced is transported through a gas pipeline to Nybro on the west coast of Jutland.
The South Arne Field has accommodation facilities for 57 persons.
