Maersk Oil completes jacket installation

The Maersk Oil operated high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) Culzean development in the UK North Sea has reached a key milestone with the safe installation of all three of the project’s jackets, on time and on budget.

The Culzean field is estimated to produce between 60,000-90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) at plateau production and produce for at least 13 years.

The installation of Central Processing Facilities (CPF) and the Utilities and Living Quarters (ULQ) jackets was completed on 20 July, 2017, while the Wellhead Platform (WHP) jacket was installed last year. All three jackets were built by Heerema and installed using the Heerema Marine operated crane vessel: the Thialf.

Martin Urquhart, Culzean Project Director confirmed that completing the installation safely and on time was a great achievement considering the scale of the structures involved; the combined weight of the jackets is 22,000T.
