The ceremony, where the first steel plate was cut for the Culzean WHP jacket was held at Heerema Vlissingen yard in the Netherlands. Culzean is an Ultra High Pressure High Temperature Development field, located in the UK North Sea. Maersk Oil UK (49.99%) is the operator, with JX Nippon (34.01%) and Britoil (BP) (16%) as its partners.

In October 2014, Heerema Fabrication Group’s Hartlepool yard in the United Kingdom was awarded the Procurement & Construction contract of the Culzean Wellhead Platform (WHP) jacket, wellhead access deck and access ways for client Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited, operator of the Culzean field in the North Sea.

The jacket will be approximately 114 meters tall with a footprint of 31 x 31 m and a top of 22 x 22 m.

The wellhead access deck and access ways will be fabricated in Hartlepool, with the WHP jacket and piles being built at Heerema’s yard in Vlissingen. The total expected scope of the Culzean project for execution at HFG’s yards will represent approximately 7,100 tons fabrication work. Construction is expected to be completed in March 2016.
