Heerema wins BP project News
// February 9, 2001
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has been selected by BP to install facilities, associated pipelines and gathering lines for the development of BP's Gulf of Mexico deep water portfolio, which includes the fields Crazy Horse, Mad Dog, Holstein and Atlantis.
The installation agreement calls for the use of two HMC vessels, the Deepwater Construction Vessel (DCV) Balder and DCV Thialf, both of which are at this moment undergoing extensive upgrades. Over the next several years the work is expected to bring as much as $400 million in revenues to HMC.
HMC is currently converting its semi-submersible crane vessel Balder into a dynamic positioned deepwater construction vessel. The conversion will be finished by the end of 2001. DCV Balder will then leave for the Gulf of Mexico for the execution of the BP projects.
For deep water pipeline installation HMC has started design and construction of its second J-lay system, which will have sufficient capacity to install all the flow lines and export lines required.
