HMC Returning to Australian Waters
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) received two letters of intent from Woodside Energy Ltd on November 14, 2007, for the transport and installation of the North Rankin B Platform substructure and topside off the northwest coast of Western Australia.
The substructure will be installed in 125 meters water depth and is planned to take place in 2011. The topside of 23,600 metric tons will be installed with the float-over method in 2012.
The installation of the North West Shelf Venture facilities will mean a return of Heerema Marine Contractors to Australian waters after 14 years.
Heerema Marine Contractors is a world-leading marine contractor for the oil and gas industry. HMC transports, installs and removes all types of offshore facilities and operates three of the four largest crane vessels in the world. HMC is a fully owned subsidiary of the Heerema Group.
