Sembmarine gets minimum facility platform concepts license

Offshore staff

SINGAPORE – Sembmarine Marine subsidiary Sembmarine SLP has secured an exclusive license from Seahorse Platform Partners Ltd. (SPPL) to use the patented Seaharvester and SeaHorse technology in the design and construction of minimum facilities platforms (MFPs) for the North Sea, other UK territorial and Irish waters.

These designs were originally developed for shallow-water platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Further, SLP and SPPL have signed a memorandum of understanding under which SPPL will award an additional exclusive license to apply the technology in the design and construction of MFPs for Southeast Asia and Australasia (excluding Malaysia and Brunei).

Patricia Blandford, CEO of Houston-based SPPL, said: “Our Seaharvester and SeaHorse technology has proven itself in more than 170 platforms worldwide, and over the years SLP has adapted the designs originally utilized in the Gulf of Mexico for the stringent conditions of the North Sea.

“It was not only SLP’s knowledge and experience of MFPs that led us to award the exclusive license but also SLP’s ability to satisfy the client’s requirements safely, on time and to a high standard of workmanship. SLP’s new association with SMOE opens up new and exciting opportunities for us all in a part of the world where marginal field development is in its infancy.”
