Reshadat jacket heads for Persian Gulf

Offshore staff

TEHRAN – Tasdid Offshore Development Co. (TASDID) has loaded out the 3,200-metric ton (3,527-ton) P4 jacket for the Reshadat field offshore Iran.

This was designed, procured, built, and loaded out by TASDID under an EPCI contract, in a yard the company co-owns with Iranian Offshore Engineering Co. (IOEC).

The Deep Offshore Technology owned vessel FLB 124 managed the load-out operation and will perform transportation. Installation of the jacket will be handled by the DLB Shaw, owned and operated by the TASDID-AL MOTAF consortium.

Installation will be handled as a launch operation, with pile driving likely to be completed 40 days later.
P4 is one of five jackets for the Reshadat development. Three are currently installed and F4 will be the next to load out. Total tonnage for this project is 14,000 tons.

TASDID was founded in 2002 following a joint venture agreement among IOEC, Sadid Industrial Group, and Petro Tech Sun Co.

IOEC, which holds 30% of TASDID’s shares, also is working on structures for ONGC’s NHRC and D-1 developments offshore India. The NHRC contract, valued at $212 million, is the company’s third project in India, and is currently over 92% complete.

The program included renovation of six platforms in the Heera and Neelam process complexes within a period of two years. IOEC’s project manager said "the reason ONGC is planning for the renovation and repair of Heera complex is to produce 110,000 b/d of oil, inject 270,000 b/d of water to the oil fields and extract 5.1 MMcm (180 MMcf) of natural gas.

At the Neelam process complex, he added, the program is designed to deliver production of 128,000 b/d of oil, inject 225,000 b/d of water and to extract 2.56 MMcm (90.4 MMcf/d) of natural gas.

Work continues on the $235-million D-1 development.
