VLISSINGEN, the Netherlands – Technip France has contracted Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) for construction services on the Hejre platform destined for offshore Denmark.
HFG will procure and fabricate the jacket, piles, and pre-drilling wellhead deck for theHejre oil and gas field in the central Danish North Sea. All will be built in HFG’s Vlissingen yard.
The 8,000-ton jacket will be an eight-leg launch structure, 60 m high, 35 m wide and 85 m high (197 x 115 x 279 ft). The DSME-Technip consortium will fabricate the topsides at DSME’s yard in South Korea.

Drilling will then start, followed by installation of the topsides in 2015.
Hejre is in 70 m (230 ft) water depth. DONG operates the development, in partnership with Bayerngas.
