ASSEN, the Netherlands – The L13-F1-1 monotower platform has reportedly been installed in the Dutch North Sea.

HSM in Schiedam built the platform, comprising a 255-metric ton (281-ton) topsides, a 312-metric ton (344-ton) monotower, and a 360-metric ton (397-ton) monopile.

In addition, the contractor was responsible for pre-commissioning, load-out, and seafastening of the structure for operatorNederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM).

Produced gas through the facility, which is based on the existing L09-FA platform design, will be exported through a 12-in. pipeline to theK15-FA-1 complex.

A piggyback line will be installed for import of one production chemical (KHI). An injection skid on the platform, comprising a storage tank and injection pumps, will serve to inject a second production chemical.

Communication and control signals will be exchanged with the K15-FA-1 platform by means of a line of sight link.

NAM has commissioned three new wells, and expects to produce first gas at end-2018.
