In the following video, Technip, a France-based oilfield services provider, explains how a Spar is transported and installed.
Spar is a cylindrical, partially submerged offshore drilling and production platform that is particularly well adapted to deepwater.
Exactly one year ago, Technip was awarded a lump sum contract by Norway’s oil giant Statoil ASA for the development of the Luva floating platform, offshore Norway, at a water depth of approximately 1,300 meters (4,265 feet).
Once constructed, it will be one of the largest Spar platforms in the world.
