Dutch company Heerema Fabrication Group has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract by Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore for the Q10-A unmanned offshore platform.
The topside of the Q10-A platform will have a weight of approximately 500 tonnes, the jacket around 600 tonnes, and will be installed late 2018. The platform will be tied back to the P15d platform.
Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group, commented: “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 execution risk.”
The Q10 gas field is located around 20km offshore the Netherlands.
