Dragados completes giant Mariner field jacket

Offshore staff

CADIZ, Spain – The jacket for Statoil’s Mariner project was loaded out recently from Dragados Offshore’s yard in southwest Spain.

The 22,400-ton jacket was the largest the yard has ever built. Dragados added that the load-out manoeuvre went according to plan.

Sea-fastening activities are under way and the jacket should sail to the field location in mid-August.
