IOG from England confirms that the Phase 1 platforms are mechanically complete at HSM Offshore’s yard and now being prepared for sail-away and installation.
Its latest video gives an on-board insight into both platforms, with our Engineering and Platform Manger Paul Kefford providing a brief guided tour.
Andrew Hockey, CEO, commented: “Completing the platforms is another key step forward for IOG in executing Phase 1 and laying the foundations for further growth. HSM have done an excellent job in maintaining the construction schedule despite the pandemic challenges. As small, remotely-operated installations, the Blythe and Southwark platforms will help us to minimise ongoing costs and carbon intensity – key elements of our operating philosophy as we look to scale up an environmentally low-impact UK gas development and production business.”
