Sembcorp Marine subsidiary SMOE is the main fabricator.

Maersk is developing Culzean via a 12-slot wellhead platform (WHP) linked by bridges to a central processing facility, supported by a floating storage and offloading vessel and a utilities and living quarters (ULQ) platform.

The FF1200 is a 70-person freefall lifeboat, while the LA1200SU is a skid-launch davit specially designed for the FF1200.
