Netherlands-based Mammoet has completed the installation of a new type of oil and gas platform for Shell in the Philippines.

Mammoet worked on the Malampaya Phase 3 depletion compression platform (DCP) project for Shell Philippines Exploration.

The Malampaya DCP floats into place over its final location, and the legs are lowered onto the prepared seabed.

A pre-installed system jacks the platform on 80m legs to lift it from the water, eliminating the need for the large, specialised vessels that are normally required in offshore platform installation.

The DCP’s end-location is next to the Malampaya shallow water production (SWP) platform, which it will be connected to by a permanent bridge, which will also be installed by Mammoet.

Shell operates the Malampaya project, located off the coast of Northwest Palawan, on behalf of its joint venture partners and the Philippine Government.

“The new platform, which is currently in phase three, will help in the extraction of natural gas from the Palawan basin, and process it via a shallow water production platform.”

The gas-to-power project will deliver approximately 30% of the country’s energy needs.

The new platform, which is currently in phase three, will help in the extraction of natural gas from the Palawan basin, and process it via a shallow water production platform.

Gas will be transported along a 504km underwater pipeline, towards the onshore gas plant.

Mammoet provided assistance in lifting and lowering the platform during the fabrication process.
