New Jacket for South Pars Phase 13

The development of Phase 13 involves drilling 38 production wells.

Iran's Offshore Engineering and Construction Company has installed the new jacket of an offshore platform for Phase 13 of South Pars Gas Field in the Persian Gulf, the director of Phase 13 development project said.

“Docking operation to install the 13A platform jacket was carried out with the help of domestic Oceanic 5000 crane ship,” Payam Motamed was quoted as saying by the official portal of the National Iranian Oil Company on Wednesday.

According to the official, the new 1,500-ton jacket that was carried to its location last month was fixed on four columns adjacent to 11 offshore wells that had already been drilled.

Pointing to an accident that destroyed the previous jacket, Motamed said, "In March 2015, a Singapore-flagged oil tanker, the Alpine Eternity, inadvertently collided with and significantly damaged the offshore platform jacket."

Jacket refers to the steel frame supporting the deck and the topsides in a fixed offshore platform. According to reports, the topsides—the upper half of the structure—had not been mounted on the jacket when the incident took place.

Highlighting that the collision has created a very dangerous situation for the wells, Motamed noted that domestic experts rebuilt the wellhead installations and drilled a series of new wells in four months.

The official added that the 72-meter-high offshore jacket, on which the main platform will be installed, is entirely manufactured by Iranian engineers at Iran Marine Industrial Company.
