McDermott begins fabrication for Tyra offshore redevelopment

McDermott International has commenced fabrication for Total’s Tyra redevelopment project located in the Danish Sector of the North Sea.

McDermott International has commenced fabrication for Total’s Tyra offshore redevelopment project located in the Danish Sector of the North Sea.

It was marked by a steel cutting ceremony at McDermott’s fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia.

McDermott Europe, Africa, Russia, and Caspian senior vice-president Tareq Kawash said: “As the project continues to progress with the completion of engineering, we are moving ahead with fabrication in full compliance with the stringent technical requirements for the North Sea in Denmark.

“We expect to meet the final timeline for the two work packages scheduled for delivery in early 2020 and 2021.”

The Tyra offshore redevelopment contract requires McDermott to fabricate and assemble two separate work packages for Total, including seven topside structures, six connecting bridges and six jacket extensions at a combined weight of 36,300t.

McDermott president and CEO David Dickson said: “Like all of our projects throughout the world, we are applying the One McDermott Way to the Tyra project. This proven model helps us reduce costs, ensure certainty and drive execution excellence while maintaining our industry-leading safety record. In turn, this delivers quality and value for our customers.”

The company delivered engineering services from its facilities in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Chennai, India, while project and supply chain management services are undertaken in Kuala Lumpur.

The work is part of an engineering, procurement, construction and onshore commissioning contract secured by the company in December last year from Maersk Oil, which was acquired by Total in March.

Total senior vice-president for the North Sea and Russia Michael Borrell said in a press release: “Following the completion of the Maersk Oil acquisition, this deal is a great opportunity to further expand our presence on the Danish Shelf and increase our interest in an asset operated by Total.

“We will further benefit from the ongoing redevelopment of the Tyra field. This new transaction demonstrates our commitment to the development of the DUC and to the expansion of Total’s presence in Denmark.”

Once the structures are completed, they will be located around 139 miles west of Esbjerg, Denmark in the North Sea.

The Tyra field processes 90% of Denmark’s gas production.
