ABU DHABI – Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has completed the third of three new platforms for ADMA-OPCO’s Umm Shaif project.

The latest platform weighs 7,041 metric tons (7,761 tons) and is 32 m (105 ft) high, 40 m (131 ft) wide and 36 m (118 ft) long. The other two fixed installations were delivered to the Umm Shaif oil field earlier this month and in April.

Installation of the production facilities and subsea pipelines, also provided by HHI, should be completed by June 2010.

At peak, they will produce 300,000 b/d of oil and 1bcf/d of gas, the latter to be exported 32 km (19.9 mi) to Das Island via a pipeline.

According to HHI, Umm Shaif is the first project that the UAE has awarded entirely to a foreign company. HHI is performing all phases of the work on a turnkey basis, from engineering, procurement and installation through commissioning.
