Total Picks Oceaneering for Tyra Project
Total E&P Danmark has awarded Oceaneering International Inc. a two-year integrity management contract for the Tyra redevelopment project in the Danish North Sea.
Oceaneering will manage its activities from Aberdeen. The agreement covers a range of services, including risk-based assessments (RBA) to aid the inspection and monitoring of pressure systems and piping, topsides and jacket structures as well as pipelines.
Oceaneering will use a multi-disciplined team of corrosion, inspection, structural and pipeline engineers, with specialist experience in delivering large-scale integrity scopes.
Bill Boyle, Senior Vice President for Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity business said: “We are working collaboratively with Total to ensure that the Tyra Redevelopment becomes a world-class operating facility. This project is defining the way in which integrity management is delivered, and our full suite of services will help to accomplish Total’s goal of enabling remote operations of the future platform.”
In addition to the Tyra Redevelopment, Oceaneering provides a range of other services to Total, from topsides inspection management services in the UK North Sea to ROV, tooling, and survey support globally.
Tyra, in production for over three decades, is a unique field. It processes 90 percent of the Denmark’s gas production. Redevelopment not only secures production at the field for the next 25 years, but the infrastructure will enable operators to pursue new gas projects in the northern part of the Danish North Sea.
At peak production it is expected to produce the equivalent of supplying 1.5 million Danish homes with gas. The investment in this project is the largest of its kind within the Danish North Sea.
Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity business provides integrity management capabilities, conventional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) and specialist inspection solutions, with a team of over 2,100 technically focused people, servicing customers from 24 global locations.
