HOUSTON -- Wood Group's Alliance Engineering has been awarded a contract to provide detailed engineering and design services for the Tamar platform project, including topsides facilities and deck structure. The Tamar natural gas field will be operated by Noble Energy, and is located offshore Israel in the eastern Mediterranean Sea's Levantine basin.
The Tamar platform will be located in approximately 800 ft (244 m) of water and will be designed to process 1.2 bcf/d. The Tamar field is estimated to contain 8.4 tcf of gas and will be produced through several subsea wells connected to the platform by 150 km (93 mi) long flowlines. The planned single-lift topsides facility will have four deck levels and will weigh nearly 10,000 tons when completed.
