DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia – The heavy-lift barge Lan Jing has completed the installation of Saudi Aramco’s Hasbah tie-in platform (TP).

The vessel deployed its 7,500-ton crane to lift a weight of around 5,000 tons, setting a new record for an Aramco offshore heavy-lift operation.

Aramco commissioned the TP as part of its program for the Arabiyah-Hasbah offshore gas fields project, which will produce 2.5 bcf/d (70 MMcm/d) of natural gas through the Wasit gas plant when completed.

In addition, Lan Jing installed the Arabiyah field tie-in platform, weighing 4,600 tons, and the 1,800-ton intermediate injection platform.
