Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has secured an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract from Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore for the Q10-A unmanned offshore platform.
The topside of the Q10-A platform is set to have a weight of around 500t, while the jacket is expected to weigh around 600t.
The jacket will stand in 21m of water off the coast of the Netherlands.
Heerema Fabrication Group CEO Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven said: “We are very pleased with this award from Tulip Oil, and the collaborative way in which we are working together with our client.
“This project is a good example of HFG’s competence to develop a project from the client’s functional requirements through to the final delivery offshore.
“We will perform the full platform FEED and EPCI in one continuous programme, rather than the traditional multi-stage approach. This enables a fast-track delivery programme, resulting in lower execution risk.”

The Q10 gasfield was discovered in 2015, and is located 20km offshore the Netherlands in shallow water.
To be installed later this year, Q10-A will be tied-back to the P15d platform.
Earlier this month, Tulip Oil made the final investment decision (FID) related to the development of the Q10 gasfield.
The company is now proceeding with the field development, with the first gas expected next year.
