Total hands out Tyra commissioning contract

A consortium comprised of Actemium Oil & Gas Commissioning and Semco Maritime has been awarded the provision of a commissioning services contract for the Tyra Redevelopment Project in an international tender.

The Tyra Redevelopment Project is led by Total E&P Denmark and includes the installation of eight new platforms at the Tyra field, the largest gas condensate field in the Danish sector of the North Sea.

The new platforms are fabricated in Indonesia, Singapore, and Italy and will be installed in 2021 and 2022.

The first production from the project was postponed in late 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the production is now expected in 2Q 2023 instead of 2022.
