HARTLEPOOL, UK Heerema Fabrication Group has won the engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the jackets of both the central processing facilities platform and the utility and living quarter platform of the Culzean development for Maersk Oil North Sea UK Ltd.

As part of the contract, six pile sleeve clusters will be fabricated at Heerema’s Hartlepool facility in the UK, in addition to the wellhead access deck already under way at the yard.

On Oct. 21, 2014, Heerema won the procurement and construction contract of the Culzean wellhead platform jacket, wellhead access deck, and access ways.

The overall Culzean development concept consists of a wellhead platform, a central processing facility platform, and a separate utility and living quarter platform. The platforms will be linked via two bridges approximately 100 m (328 ft) in length. First gas is expected in 2019.

The Culzean field – discovered in 2008 – is in the UK central North Sea approximately 250 km (155) east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a. The water depth is 88 m (289 ft).
