Boskalis to use Barge Master system in phase 3 of Malampaya project

BY MELANIE CRUTHIRDS, News Editor

CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands -- Barge Master has received a Letter of Award from Boskalis International for employment of the Barge Master motion compensated platform during phase 3 of the Malampaya project. The Barge Master system will be used during the second half of 2014 for the installation of a permanent bridge between a newly installed depletion compression platform (DCP) and an existing shallow water gas production platform (SWP).

The Malampaya project will be executed by Boskalis for Shell Philippines Exploration, and comprises the installation of an offshore depletion compression platform at the Malampaya gas field, in the Philippines. The new multi-purpose construction DP2 vessel Ndeavor plays a pivotal role in this project. During phase 3, the Barge Master system will be placed on the Ndeavor. The permanent bridge, which is to be installed between the two platforms, will be loaded onto the Barge Master platform and sailed out to the project location. Once on site, the bridge will be held still by the Barge Master, in order to be lifted off safely by two temporarily installed lifting arrangements.
