Noble Tamar Jacket Arrives in Israeli Waters

Noble Tamar Jacket Arrives in Israeli Waters

Tugs Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine have delivered the new build Noble Tamar jacket at location in the Tamar gas field in the Eastern Mediterranean, off the coast of Israel.

Both tugs towed the barge on which the jacket was loaded from the US to the field South-East of Cyprus. The 18,500 ton jacket was build in the US. In Corpus Christi the jacket was loaded on the 260 meters long barge H-S51, world’s largest launch and cargo barge owned by Heerema Marine Contractors.

Fairmount Marine, part of the Louis Dreyfus Armateurs Group, was contracted by Heerema Marine Contractors and mobilized the tugs Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine to Corpus Christi. From this port the convoy set sail for the 9,000 miles voyage.

It took only 54 days at an average speed of 6.9 knots to deliver the barge in the Tamar field. Upon arrival the Fairmount Summit and Fairmount Alpine assisted in the launching and installation operations. The Tamar gas field is classified as the largest deepwater natural gas discovery in 2009. Production is expected to start in the second quarter of this year.
