TOPIC S.A. of Tunisia has engaged ICON Engineering to assist in the development of the Halk el Menzel (HelM) field located in the Gulf of Hammamet.
ICON’s scope includes the analysis of the transportation and Installation, design of the topsides structure and Operational Procedure development of the jacket lift, upending and installation, jacket piling and topside installation.
A particularly challenging aspect of this project is the installation of a jacket that was not initially designed to be lifted by a jack-up rig. This method of installation often requires of the capabilities of the jack-up rig to be a key consideration in the design of the jacket, something which was not the case for this project.
As such, ICON has had to bring to bear its extensive experience of over 25 platform installations to ensure that the jacket can be lifted, upended and installed in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
