PHOTO: McDermott performs dual lift on Marjan field

McDermott, an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation company, has installed the GOSP-3 electrical auxiliary platform for Saudi Aramco on the Marjan oil field off Saudi Arabia.

McDermott said via social media channels on Thursday that its Derrick Barge 27 and Derrick Barge 30 recently installed the platform using a dual lift configuration.

The work was performed as part of a contract for a significant power supply system replacement on the Marjan field awarded to McDermott by Saudi Aramco back in March 2015.

The overall brownfield project comprised integrated engineering, procurement, construction, installation (EPCI) and replacement of the decks of two existing tie-in platforms, as well as the removal and salvage of existing gas turbine generators, and the installation of two new 115kV subsea power and communication cables. The initial scope of work awarded to McDermott in 2015 comprised the engineering, procurement, fabrication and load-out of the platforms and cable.

The Marjan complex, located off Saudi Arabia’s east coast, contains four offshore fields, Marjan, Lawhah, Maharah, and Hamur.

Marjan, the largest of the four, is a super-giant field that straddles the offshore median line with Iran. The majority of oil reserves lie within the Saudi Arabian part of the field although the Iranian portion, which is called Foroozan, also contains significant volumes of oil.
