Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has been awarded the contract for the fabrication of two jackets for the Golden Eagle Development project of Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd. The contract consists of the fabrication of a 6,000 tons wellhead jacket and a 6,000 tons jacket for the PUQ (Production Utilities Quarters). The construction will be executed at the Vlissingen fabrication location and is scheduled to start in February 2012. Both jackets will have a height of 130 meters with a foot print of 45 x 45 meter. It is scheduled that the jacket will be ready for transportation to Nexen’s Golden Eagle oilfield in the UK North Sea, approximately 43 miles from Aberdeen, in the 2nd quarter of 2013.

“The award of the Golden Eagle jackets contract follows the successful execution of the Buzzard PS jacket contract in 2009, which formed the basis for the mutual confidence to fabricate the wellhead and PUQ jackets in parallel for delivery by 2nd quarter 2013”, according to Remco van Gilst, VP Business Development and Sales.

Tino Vinkesteijn, CCO of Heerema Fabrication Group adds: “Securing this contract will continue to safeguard employment at our Vlissingen facility and also create additional supply-chain jobs in this region, as it will directly follows the jackets currently under construction.” Tino continues: “The continuous improvement process of our safety culture, which is called ‘Building on Safety’, is secured and carefully taken into account in the overall project planning to achieve a safe and accident free working environment. We look forward to working again with our client Nexen to accomplish a safe execution and successful completion of this project.”
