Buzzard Sails Away to the North Sea

Earlier this week the Buzzard Project production module, constructed at the Dragados Offshore Yard located in Puerto Real, left from the Quay in Bajo de la Cabezuela to the British sector of the North Sea.

Dragados Offshore has completed the construction of the production module of 12,000 tons that comprises of the set of platforms offshore of the Buzzard Project for the Canadian-based Nexen.

The Buzzard project is currently on of the largest projects underway in the North Sea.

The sail-away maneuver of the module, from the Bay of Cadiz, was executed without a hitch and it is predicted to arrive at its final destination around mid June. It will sail by the coast of Portugal, will advance towards the Gulf of Vizcaya, will continue by the Mancha Canal and will come to rest in the Outer Moray Firth, central North Sea, 100 kilometers northeast of Aberdeen and 55 kilometers from the nearest landfall at Peterhead.

The Buzzard field straddles two licenses - P.986 (Blocks 19/10 and 20/6) and P.928(S) (Blocks 19/5a and 20/1S) and the water depth in the area is about 100 meters.
