Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has received an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for the Q10-A unmanned offshore platform from Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore.
The platform will be a part of a Q10 gas field, located 20 km offshore the Netherlands.
HFG will build the topside and the jacket for the Q-10 A platform.
The topside of the platform will have a weight of approximately 500 tonnes, while the jacket will have a weight of around 600 tonnes and will stand in 21 meters of water.
Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group, said: “We are very pleased with this award from Tulip Oil, and the collaborative way in which we are working together with our client. This project is a good example of HFG’s competence to develop a project from the client’s functional requirements through to the final delivery offshore. We will perform the full platform FEED and EPCI in one continuous program, rather than the traditional multi-stage approach. This enables a fast-track delivery program, resulting in lower f execution risk.”
The Q10-A platform will be installed late 2018, and will be tied back to the P15d platform.
