Fossil energy – Tyra Redevelopment
According to Morten Hesselager Pedersen, Vice President, Head of the Tyra Redevelopment at TotalEnergies, crane vessel Sleipnir has lifted and installed the first new topside for the Tyra redevelopment in the Danish North Sea.
Touch down was very early in the morning on Monday, August 30. Pedersen: “With this topside in place we finally see the physical contours of Tyra II, which will be the new high-tech hub for Denmark’s natural gas production and reduce CO2 emissions by 30%.
The topside was lifted about 50 meters up from the deck of the transportation vessel and installed with great accuracy by Heerema’s Sleipnir on the jacket in the dark, wavy North Sea.
The installation took place soon after the three new Tyra East wellhead and riser platforms had arrived at the Tyra field over the weekend.
The Tyra field is the largest gas condensate field in the Danish Sector of the North Sea. Due to seabed subsidence, the Tyra field required a redevelopment, a project that was sanctioned by the DUC in 2017.
