A 114 meters tall jacket, built for Mearsk Oil, has left Heerema’s Vlissingen yard, and it is heading to the Culzean field offshore UK.
Maersk Oil received an approval for the field development from the UK Oil & Gas Authority in August 2015.
The jacket is a part of a wellhead platform, which along with a central processing facility platform and a separate utilities and living quarter platform will be part of Culzean field.
The wellhead platform jacket is expected to reach its destination in 2-3 days, Maersk Oil informed through its social media.
At the end of March, the jacket was loaded onto a barge which is now transporting it to its location in the Central North Sea approximately 200 km east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a.
The field reservoir is located around 4,300 m below sea level.
