• Offshore Platform Construction: Topside Module Installation

    On an offshore oil platform, topsides (c.f. jacket structure, which constitutes the lower half of the platform structure, partly submerged in sea) refers to the upper half of the structure, above the sea level, outside the splash zone, on which equipment is installed. This includes the oil production plant, the accommodation block and the drilling rig. They are often modular in design and so can be changed out if necessary allowing expensive platforms to be more readily updated with newer technology.

  • Offshore Platform Installation- Jacket Installation and Topside Installation

    http://www.oceanicmc.com/ Oceanic 5000 is a DP2 Derrick Lay Vessel which can install offshore structures including jackets and topsides weighing up to 4400MT. The state-of-the-art Oceanic 5000 can also lay subsea pipelines utilizing her two double-joint stations resulting in considerable increase in lay rates. This video demonstrates installation of a 2000t jacket by launching method and a 1500t topside (deck) by lifting method. The entire pipe lay assembly process is carried out below the main working deck. This allows maximum pipe storage above deck and more free deck space for structural installation; thereby providing a safer and more productive working condition. The vessel is equipped with a specially-designed “piggy-back” system for the installation of carrier pipes to be simulta...

    The Wheatstone Project successfully completed one of the largest offshore platform installations in Chevron's history, marking a major project milestone. Watch the journey of the Wheatstone topsides from fabrication to load-out, the sail-away, the arrival and the float-over onto the steel-gravity structure base. The Wheatstone Platform is the largest offshore gas processing platform ever installed in Australia, with a topsides weight of about 37,000 metric tons and the largest float-over installation Chevron has ever delivered globally.

    Lundin Norway has successfully completed the installation of the topside modules on the Edvard Grieg field, offshore Norway. The Edvard Grieg topside installation consisted of lifting four modules onto the pre-installed jacket – the main deck frame, the utility and living quarters module, the processing module and the flare boom with a total weight of 22,000 tonnes. The lift operation was carried out by Heerema’s heavy lift vessel Thialf.

  • Load out of the DolWin alpha topsides at Heerema's Zwijndrecht yard.

    Load out operations of the DolWin alpha topsides from Heerema's Zwijndrecht fabrication yard at the Drechthaven, located on the river Oude Maas. This operation marks the start of a journey that the platform will make, via Schiedam, to its final offshore destination, the DolWin area in German North Sea. Here it will be positioned on top of the already installed jacket in July 2013. The platform of DolWin1 was built by Heerema Fabrication Group's Zwijndrecht yard, as a subcontractor of TenneT's main contractor ABB. The platform is 45 metres wide, 77 metres long and approx. 80 metres high (from the waterline to the top of the crane) and weighs more than 9,000 metric tonnes.

    McDermott constructed the 17,000-ton Central Azeri Topsides for the ACG Full Field Development in the Caspian Sea, and handled assembly, hook-up and commissioning of the integrated drilling/quarters/production deck. Topside fabrication was done primarily in Azerbaijan at Baku Deepwater Jack Factory (BDJF), a fabrication yard owned by the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic, utilizing key local Azerbaijani infrastructure, equipment and workers. The contract included upgrading plant and equipment at BDJF before actual construction of the topsides began. Local Azerbaijanis contributed to more than 80% of the project.

This allows maximum pipe storage above deck and more free deck space for structural installation; thereby providing a safer and more productive working condition. The vessel is equipped with a specially-designed “piggy-back” system for the installation of carrier pipes to be simultaneously attached to the main trunk line during the lay operation. The stinger is 74 meters long connected by a hinged A-frame to the stern. The vessel is equipped with three 80T tensioners. The crane is designed to address the majority of lifting requirements including heavy lift installations, near shore lifting, and platform removal. The lift capacities of the main block (4400mt at 37 meters) and the auxiliary block (800mt at 35 meters) enable the vessel to undertake an impressive range of projects. Moreover, the 3000T fully-revolving condition increases efficiency, workability and control of heavy lift operations. Oceanic 5000′s relatively shallow draft provides access to work in shallow waters and fabrication yards. This versatility, combined with the ability to utilize both anchor and DP2 positioning systems, enable OMC the flexibility to perform the entire scope of work irrespective of water depths. The vessel propulsion system, designed to transit at 12 knots, allows her to reach locations in a swift and cost-effective manner.
