Wellhead Platform Topside Load-Out for Qatargas 3 & 4

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/30/2009, Location: Middle East

The first of the new wellhead platform topsides for Qatargas 3 & Qatargas 4 was loaded onto a barge ready for sail-away in the United Arab Emirates where it was built in accordance with the highest safety standards.

The sail away and eventual installation of the platform topsides will be a major project achievement for Qatargas as it marks a milestone for the next phase of Qatargas expansion.

Mr. Faisal M. Al Suwaidi, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas said: “Qatargas 3 & Qatargas 4 is the next exciting phase in our expansion. This is a key milestone for the projects and I would like to thank all the parties involved for their dedication to seeing this job completed safely. In particular I would like to commend the Offshore Project team and J. Ray McDermott who have worked hard together to create a safe working environment during the construction of these topides.”

The topsides, which weigh approximately 2200 tonnes, will be positioned above the legs of the previously installed jacket structures and will be lowered over the 11 pre-drilled wells.

The offshore facilities will supply the gas for the two liquefied natural gas processing trains currently under construction onshore in Ras Laffan City.

The shareholders in Qatargas 3 are Qatar Petroleum, ConocoPhillips and Mitsui while those in Qatargas 4 are Qatar Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell.
