Culzean WHP Jacket Ready for Sail Away

The wellhead platform (WHP) jacket for Maersk Oil’s Culzean field has been loaded onto a barge at Heerema’s Vlissingen yard in preparation for a spring sail away.

Heerema Fabrication Group started building the jacket in 2015, and as planned, the jacket is ready for sail away ahead of drilling startup on the project in Q2 2016.

The jacket, designed by Ramboll, is approximately 114 m tall with a footprint of 31 x 31 m and a top of 22 x 22 m.

The jacket is a part of wellhead platform, which along with a central processing facility platform and a separate utilities and living quarter platform will be part of Culzean field.

The Culzean field is situated in the UK sector of the Central North Sea approximately 200 km east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a. The water depth is approximately 88 m and the reservoir is located around 4,300 m below sea level.

Maersk Oil received an approval for the field development from the UK Oil & Gas Authority in August 2015.
