DOHA, Qatar -- The last of three topsides and pipeline risers were installed onto the QW8 jacket for the QG3&4 project, according to J. Ray McDermott.

The company’s derrick barge DB101 installed the 38-in. (97-cm) pipeline riser and lifted the 2,000-metric ton (2,205-ton) topside into position. The vessel subsequently lifted and positioned the helideck and flareboom structures.

The pipelines and topsides will now be hooked up and fully commissioned in preparation for the introduction of gas.
