Culzean jackets on their wayNews // July 25, 2017
Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has completed construction of the Culzean jackets for client Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited.
The jacket for the central processing facilities platform (CPF) set sail on 28 June and the jacket for the utility and living quarter platform (ULQ) followed on 7 July. Their final destination is the Culzean development in the British sector of the North Sea.
The Culzean field - discovered in 2008 - is situated in the British sector of the Central North Sea approximately 250km to the east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a. The water depth is approximately 88m and the reservoir is located around 4,300m below sea level.
The overall Culzean development consists of a wellhead platform, a central processing facility platform and a separate utilities & living quarter platform.
The platforms will be interconnected by two bridges, each approximately 100m in length.
First gas is expected in 2019. The Culzean project has the potential to meet around 5 per cent of the British gas consumption in 2020/21.
