HOUSTON, Feb. 1 -- BP Norge has reported its 11, 000-ton BP Valhall redevelopment integrated production and hotel facility deck has left the fabrication hall.
The main deck will measure 100 m in length, 47 m in width, and 50 m in height. It is expected that the structures’ main deck, weather deck module, flare boom, and first and second bridges will leave the Heerema Zwijndrecht location in May or June for its final destination off Norway. Once completed, the topsides will weigh more than 13,000 tons, excluding power-from-shore module and living quarters.
Heerema Zwijndrecht was awarded the fabrication and integration contract in March 2007 for the topsides with the 350-ton flare-boom structure of which fabrication started in November 2007. It also received the award for the fabrication of the 2,000-ton weather deck module on June 23, 2009.
