VIDEO: Major work complete on Hejre platform topside

Danish Energy company Dong Energy has informed that the top deck of its Hejre oil platform was lifted into place at the DSME yard in Okpo, South Korea, on Saturday, July 11, 2015.

The top deck was the last deck to be installed on the Hejre oil platform topside. Using two large crawler cranes, the procedure involved a tandem lift of the 503-tonne top deck, and a set-down point approx. 50 meters above ground level.

Director in DONG Energy, Christian Eilersen said: “This is a very proud moment for all of us in the Korea team. With the top deck in position, we have completed the major structural work on the Hejre platform with a strong commitment to quality and to safety.”

He continued: “We will be working closely with the contractors DSME and Technip in order to maintain this focus moving forward.”

In the coming months, all the process equipment, piping, spools and cable pulling will be installed on the topside. At the moment, some 650 workers are working on the topside every day to ensure completion of the installations by spring 2016, Dong Energy said Wednesday.

Hejre field is one of the largest offshore oil and gas developments in Denmark. The field is being developed by a joint venture between DONG Energy and Bayerngas. DONG Energy is the operator and has a 60 per cent stake in the field and Bayerngas owns 40 per cent.

DONG Energy estimates the total reserves of the Hejre field at approximately 170 million barrels of oil equivalent. The development comprises a production platform, drilling of production wells and new pipelines that will be tied into existing North Sea pipelines.
