NORTH SEA FIELD DEVELOPMENT ADVANCES
Amerada Hess Ltd. has installed its first platform topsides module for development of Scott oil field in Block 15/21a of the U.K. North Sea. Amerada Hess is developing the field using two steel platforms-one for utilities and accommodation, the other for production and drilling. The 8,000 metric ton utilities deck was installed by Heeremac, using the DB102 crane barge. The same vessel installed the 8,800 metric ton utilities jacket in March.
