COOEC-Fluor deliver central platform for CNOOC’s Dongfang project
COOEC-Fluor Heavy Industries has built and delivered the central and wellhead platforms for CNOOC’s Dongfang 13-2 Gas Fields Development Project.
The COOEC-Fluor recently shipped out the central platform from its yard in Zhuhai, China. The central platform delivery follows the loadout of the wellhead platform in August 2018.
The platform modules will make up part of a new offshore oil and gas production platform in the western South China Sea, 132 kilometers west of Dongfang City.
COOEC-Fluor JV was responsible for assembling, commissioning and loading out the two offshore modules. The two modules have a total weight of 19,100 metric tons.
“The central platform module is larger than a soccer field at 115 meters long, 46 meters wide and 96 meters high,” COOEC-Fluor said.
The project supports further natural gas development in the South China Sea. Once in operation, the facility is expected to produce 43,400 barrels-of-oil-equivalent per day at the peak from the high-temperature and high-pressure gas fields.
