Heerema Fabrication Group is pressing on with its operations on two jackets meant for the Culzean field development at its Vlissingen facility in the Netherlands.

The company reported through its social media channels on Tuesday, January 31 that the last row of the Culzean’s utility & living quarter (ULQ) jacket was also in upright position.

Culzean’s Central Processing Facilities (CPF) jacket was brought to upright position before ULQ, in December 2016.

This fourth roll-up of the Culzean ULQ and CPF jackets has been completed, the company added on Tuesday.

Maersk Oil-operated Culzean is an Ultra High Pressure High Temperature Development field and one of the largest gas discoveries of recent years in the UK North Sea.

In September 2015, Heerema won the contract to build jackets for both the central processing facilities platform and the utility & living quarter platform for the North Sea field. This was the second Culzean-related project for Hereema. Namely, the company already built the wellhead platform jacket, wellhead access deck, and access ways for the Culzean. The wellhead platform jacket was installed on the seabed in May 2016.

Both jackets will be approximately 115 metres tall and have a footprint of 38 x 38 metres. The jacket for the CPF has a top of 24 x 30 metres and a weight of almost 8,000 tonnes. The top of the ULQ jacket will be 24 x 24 metres and the jacket will weigh 6,800 tonnes.

According to the project schedule, the two jackets should be ready for sail away in June this year.

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.
