Fabrication of two production platform topsides for the Caister and Murdoch gas field development projects in the U.K. North Sea is complete. AMEC plc, London, built the decks for Caister in Block 44/23a and Murdoch in Block 44/22a on behalf of operators Total Oil Marine plc and Conoco (U.K.) Ltd., respectively. Construction took place at the Hadrian yard, Wallsend, U.K. Load-out of the structures onto barges was scheduled last week, with tow-out set for Apr. 6.
