2H Offshore Delivers Platform Design for Dubai Petroleum

Acteon Group Ltd. announced Monday that its subsidiary 2H Offshore was appointed by Dubai Petroleum (DP) to deliver an intensive, fast track design of an ultra-lightweight conductor supported tripod platform for installation off Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The tripod platform, known as T-02, has been successfully installed in the Fateh field, offshore Dubai in 164 feet (50 meters) water depth. The platform consists of a minimal topside and subsea structure and hosts an exploration well during an upcoming drilling and well test campaign.

As part of the T-02 platform project, 2H Offshore investigated a wide range of development options to facilitate the exploration well for DP before ultimately proving the conductor supported tripod as the most economical and technically feasible solution.

The tripod is designed for installation from a jackup, enabling drilling to commence directly after installation. Leading the detailed design, 2H Offshore undertook the structural design of the subsea template, conductors and topside brace structure while liaising with DP on the access platform and other structural details.

“We carefully assessed the client’s design brief and developed a solution that considered the in-service functional requirements as well as the installation constraints. With the combined knowledge and experience of the DP and 2H teams, we were able to deliver an efficient design in-line with the client’s demanding fabrication and installation program,” said 2H lead engineer, Graham Nicholson.

“We have a dedicated team of highly skilled engineers and continue to support DP with its future requirements,” added Nicholson.
