Maersk orders two Tyra jackets from Dragados

Engineering, procurement, and construction contractor Dragados Offshore has been awarded a contract by Mærsk Oil and Gas for the Tyra East G & Tyra East H jackets for the Tyra Future Development Project.

Both jackets will be installed in the Danish sector of the North Sea as part of the Maersk Oil-operated Tyra Future Development Project approved in December 2017.

Dragados Offshore said on Thursday that its scope of work includes project management, HSEQ management, procurement, construction (ePC), preservation, preparation for sail-away including load-out, sea-fastening and handover of the Tyra Jackets TEG (jacket for the process and utility platform) and TEH (jacket for the accommodation platform).

The weight of the TEG Jacket is approximately 6.300 tons & the TEH Jacket weighs close to 4,000 tons, both excluding piles.

The project will be carried out in Dragados Offshore’s facilities in Puerto Real, Cadiz, Spain. Starting immediately, the jackets are scheduled to leave Dragados Offshore’s facilities in the spring of 2020.

The redevelopment of Tyra, 225 km west of Esbjerg, will cost around $3.36 billion. The redeveloped Tyra is expected to deliver approximately 60.000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at peak, and it is estimated that the redevelopment can enable the production of more than 200 million barrels of oil equivalent. Approximately 2/3 of the production is expected to be gas and the rest to be oil.

The Tyra field will be shut-in for the redevelopment in November 2019, and production is expected to resume in July 2022.

It is worth reminding that the French oil giant Total is in the process of acquiring Maersk Oil though a transaction announced in August 2017 and worth about $7.45 billion dollars. The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018.

Tyra contractors

Earlier this year, Maersk also entered into a contract with Baker Hughes, a GE company, to support the redevelopment of the Tyra field. Under the contract, BHGE will deliver an integrated scope of turbomachinery equipment for the topside production facility of the Tyra field redevelopment project, including seven compression trains featuring BCL centrifugal compressors driven by GE Power high speed electric motors; three gas turbine generator sets; and two turbo expanders.

In December 2017, McDermott won a contract worth between $500 million and $750 million for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services for the Tyra Redevelopment project.

Dutch contractor Heerema  Marine Contractors is also part of the project through a contract for extensive offshore lifting services in the Tyra East and West complexes related to the replacement of the wellhead and riser platform topsides. Prior to that, Heerema was also hired for the transportation and installation contract for the processing & accommodation platform to be carried out using Heerema’s giant Sleipnir semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir; due to come into service early 2019.
