Self installing platform

Objective

To demonstrate to the oil and gas industry the viability of the Self Installing Platform for marginal oil and gas fields in order to give the industry the confidence to use the concept in the development of small fields which were thus far not economically exploitable.

Its key features are:
- The advantages of using suction pile technology for the platform foundation avoiding heavy lift crane barges or heavy duty piling equipment
- The vertical float out method for the complete platform including topsides of up to 500 tons
- The potential to remove the platform and to re-use it for another application
- To provide a low cost alternative for the development of small fields
- To establish the capability of the consortium and the EU to bring this SIP to the market
