SHWE topsides installed

Offshore staff

BREDA, the Netherlands – Dockwise Ltd. has installed the production platform at the SHWE gas development in Myanmar’s A-1 offshore block, setting a company record for the heaviest float-over installation.

The 30,000-ton topsides were launched from the HYSY229 barge, which arrived at the Bay of Bengal location Dec. 8, 2012, from Hyundai Heavy Industries’ fabrication yard in Ulsan, Korea.

Installation of the platform, which accommodates 200 people along with drilling and production equipment, surpassed Dockwise’s previous installation record of 21,000 tons.

The SHWE project in blocks A-1 and A-2 is operated by a consortium led by Daewoo International. The project, 70 km (43.5 mi) offshore Myanmar, will produce and process up to 500 MMcf/d of gas to China.
