Heerema Fabrication Group awarded contract for wellhead jackets by Nexen

The contract consists of the fabrication of a 6000 tonnes wellhead jacket and a 6000 tonnes jacket for the PUQ (Production Utilities Quarters). The construction will be executed at the Vlissingen fabrication location and is scheduled to start in February 2012. Both jackets will have a height of 130 m with a foot print of 45 x 45 m.  It is scheduled that the jacket will be ready for transportation to Nexen’s Golden Eagle oilfield in the UK North Sea, approximately 43 miles from Aberdeen, in the 2nd quarter of 2013.

“The award of the Golden Eagle jackets contract follows the successful execution of the Buzzard PS jacket contract in 2009, which formed the basis for the mutual confidence to fabricate the wellhead and PUQ jackets in parallel for delivery by 2nd quarter 2013”, according to Remco van Gilst, VP Business Development and Sales.
