PHOTO: Touchdown for Culzean Wellhead Platform Jacket

A 114 meters long Culzean wellhead platform jacket has reached its destination and it’s now fixed to the seabed by 12 skirt piles driven 45 meters deep, Maersk Oil informed on Wednesday.

The jacket left the Heerema’s Vlissingen yard mid-April set for the Central North Sea some 250 kilometres east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a.

Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has also been given a task to build jackets for both the central processing facilities platform and the utility & living quarter platform, which along with wellhead platform will be part of Culzean field. The platforms will be linked via two bridges approximately 100 metres in length.

The Culzean field was discovered in 2008. The water depth is approximately 88 metres and the reservoir is located around 4,300 metres below sea level.

First gas is currently expected in 2019, with potential to meet around 5 per cent of UK gas consumption 2020/21, Maersk Oil said.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
