Bladt Industries, an international steel contractor specializing in large-scale and highly complex steel structures, has reported that the new unmanned satellite platform, Tyra Southeast B, has been shipped to the destination in the Danish sector of the North Sea.
Maersk Oil has signed a contract with Bladt Industries to build the jacket (legs) and topside (platform).
In June, the 1,100 tonnes topside, the 2,000 tonnes four-legged jacket, 12 piles weighing a total of 1,600 tonnes as well as the connecting bridge were loaded onto the barge.
The EPC-project will serve as an extension of the already existing Tyra Southeast A platform.
After installing the platform, Maersk Oil plans to drill 12 wells during 2015-2017. Each horizontal well will be about six kilometres long.
