Following the arrival in Singapore, the heavy transport vessel BigRoll Beaufort in late July sailed away from the Sembcorp Marine construction yard with the three topsides, heading directly to the Tyra field in the Danish North Sea.

The Tyra project is operated by TotalEnergies with a 43.2 per cent interest with Noreco (36.8 per cent) and Nordsøfonden (20 per cent) as its partners.

Noreco said on Monday that the 16,000 kilometres long voyage went according to plan and schedule.

Noreco also said that the world’s largest crane vessel, Sleipnir, is now in position at the Tyra field to lift the three topsides off the vessel and onto the jackets. The lifting of the topsides will be followed by an installation period scheduled to take place during September.

Progress on the five remaining platforms continues per schedule to meet the first gas date in 2Q 2023.

Once redeveloped and at peak production, the completion of the Tyra project will enable the supply of around 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, i.e. total production of 200 million barrels over the next 25 years.

TotalEnergies this year also awarded a commissioning services contract for the project, which went to a consortium of Actemium Oil & Gas Commissioning and Semco Maritime. 

The contract features several scopes of work, including project management, HSE management, planning, commissioning engineering, onshore sail away preparation from the fabrication yards, offshore commissioning execution, procurement and subcontracting as well as startup assistance.
