MAERSK OIL SELECTS SEMCO FOR CULZEAN HOOKUP
Danish Semco Maritime has been selected to participate in the hook-up of Maersk Oil UK’s new gas field in the UK sector of the North Sea when the production units arrive from Singapore in the summer of 2018. The largest order ever for Semco Maritime’s Aberdeen office.
Maersk Oil UK has selected Semco Maritime to participate in the installation and preparation (hook-up) of the new gas production field Culzean, which is located 240 kilometres east of the coast of Aberdeen in the UK sector of the North Sea. The contract is the largest ever for Semco Maritime’s Aberdeen office. Semco Maritime will be responsible for carrying out the electrical work, while the piping and painting work will be carried out by two other companies. The Culzean complex consists of a central processing platform, a wellhead platform, a living quarter platform, which are currently under construction at the Sembcorp Marine yard in Singapore. Production from the natural gas field is expected to commence in 2019. In Singapore Semco Maritime will even now set up a team of hook up specialists to prepare the installation work in order to have everything planned when the platforms arrive in the North Sea next summer, says Vice President Carsten Nielsen, Semco Maritime Ltd. “We are very pleased that Maersk Oil UK has chosen us for this project, which marks a breakthrough for us in the UK. The order also confirms Semco Maritime’s strategy of including our competences and offshore experience in a close cooperation with customers in the North Sea, who seek highly specialised assistance within maintenance projects or hook up of new installations”, says Carsten Nielsen.“The Culzean order is a very interesting and challenging project that sets the highest expectations and demands for safety and quality on time, and we will do everything we can to live up to this”.
