Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) successfully held a steel cutting ceremony for the first offshore living quarters to be fabricated in Qatar, at the world-class Erhama bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard. The project scope was awarded to N-KOM by Rosetti Marino, a leading Italian company providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to the energy industry worldwide.
Rossetti Marino was awarded the EPCIC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation and Commissioning) contract for the fabrication of a brand-new offshore living quarters and refurbishment of an existing platform with modern facilities for a local offshore complex in the North Field.
Chief Executive Officer of Nakilat, Eng. Abdullah Al Sulaiti, said: “This ceremony marks a milestone not only for N-KOM but also for Qatar, as this is the first such offshore fabrication to be wholly-constructed locally. With N-KOM’s solid experience in handling offshore fabrication projects, and Rosetti Marino’s expertise in the field of EPC services, we are confident in delivering the project in a safe, timely and efficient manner, towards supporting the growth of Qatar’s oil and gas industry.”
An estimated 4,700 metric tonnes (MT) of structures will be fabricated by N-KOM as part of the project, comprising of jacket and piles, as well as a topside for the offshore platform. The new offshore platform is intended to accommodate an additional 90 persons on board and will be linked via six bridges to the existing complex, thereby increasing the total accommodation capacity of the platform to 152 persons. Expected to be completed by mid-2020, the additional accommodation capacity will enable the offshore platform to meet the demands of increased operational requirements.
