This was the largest jacket for installation by the launch method ever built by Heerema Vlissingen, which was awarded the EPIC contract for the jacket and pre-drilling wellhead module in February 2013.
HFG Engineering was responsible for the design.
The jacket was skidded onto a transportation barge in late March and has now departed for installation at the offshore site.
It is 142 m (466 ft) high, with a footprint of 60 x 50 m (197 x 164 ft). The 256-ton pre-drilling wellhead module, set for sail away after installation of the jacket, will allow wells to be drilled before the topsides are in place.
