Heerema’s heavy lift vessel Aegir has successfully completed the installation of North Oil Company’s Al-Shaheen Gallaf 1 Project. Heerema was contracted for the transportation and installation of three topsides and three bridges by PTSC M&C Vietnam, who fabricated the structures at their yard in Vung Tau, Vietnam.
The work consisted of installing three topsides weighing between 2000 and 2500 metric tons and three bridges weighing between 700-1100 metric tons. These were installed onto pre-installed jackets in the Al-Shaheen field located around 80 km north of Ras Laffan, Qatar. Aegir arrived at block 5 of the Al-Shaheen on October 19, and began installing the DC bridge and topside. After that, the EG bridge and topside followed, and finally the project was completed with the FC bridge and topside on October 28.
