The award includes topside nitrogen helium leak testing and commissioning during hook-up of seven new Tyra II platforms. In addition, extensive work will be carried out with dewatering and preservation of subsea pipelines between the platforms.
The Tyra Redevelopment Project has been a success for IKM Testing. In 2019-2020 IKM Testing Norway completed a contract for cleaning and preparation prior to removal of existing platforms and associated subsea pipelines at the field. IKM Testing Asia has through 2021 performed engineering, nitrogen helium leak testing, flange management and commissioning services on the wellhead and riser plattforms built at Sembcorp Marine yard in Singapore and are currently performing engineering, nitrogen helium leak testing and commissioning on the processing module which is under construction at McDermott yard in Batam, Indonesia.
IKM Testing has had a long term co-operation with TotalEnergies EP Danmark A/S (former Maersk Olie og Gas) since 2000, but has never been involved in such an extensive single project in the Danish North Sea. IKM Testing has been involved in all major development projects on the Norwegian continental shelf and has vast expertise in safe hook-up and commissioning of new installations.
We are extremely pleased that TotalEnergies EP Danmark A/S together with its Danish Underground Consortium partners has awarded us this significant contract says Jens Bolme, International Sales and Marketing Director in IKM Testing, it demonstrates our abilitty to win repeated business with valued customers by offering cost effective solutions.
