Along with other fabrication partners, Bifab shares our focus on safety and quality and we look forward to working closely together over the coming years as we develop the Cygnus project. Have you ever wondered what life is like on an oil rig in the North Sea? Our relationship with Heerema is one of the most significant aspects of the project. At peak production, the field is expected to meet the demand of around 1. Visitors have the opportunity to experience areas including the helipad, wellhead, control room and accommodation, fitness, leisure and restaurant spaces. Generally speaking holiday entitlement is included in the time off.
The well tested at a rate of 28 million cubic feet each day. Fresh food is regularly delivered to the installation by supply boat or helicopter, so things like fruit and salad are readily available. This contract award further demonstrates our longstanding commitment to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with a highly qualified and competitive supply chain, which we are pleased to continue supporting. The contract covers the fabrication and construction services for the platform, including the design, procurement, pre-commissioning assistance, weighing and load-out. Viewers of the virtual tour can explore different areas of the Cygnus Alpha offshore platform, such as the helipad, the sleeping and living quarters, the fitness centre and recreational rooms, the medical centre, and all the operational areas you would expect to see on a gas platform.
It exports gas via a new 55km connection to an existing pipeline, which ends at the Bacton terminal. For further information on how we process and monitor your personal data click.

For the first time ever, a camera crew was allowed access to create a virtual tour of the facilities, which include; 66 en suite bedrooms in hotel-style facilities, a gym, a games and cinema rooms, a medical center, a helipad and, of course, the heart of the operation: the main control room. The 1,640-metric ton 1,808-ton topsides had sailed from the Heerema Hartlepool yard in northeast England a week earlier. Subsequent subsurface data analysis, innovative geological thinking and leading-edge geophysics enabled this discovery to become the largest gas field development in the Southern North Sea in over 30 years.
The Alpha installation has three platforms: one for drilling and extracting gas; one for processing and exporting it; and one for accommodation and support services. The tour takes place on the central Alpha complex which houses the wellhead drilling centre. The subsea structures were built in Scotland by Global Energy Group's Isleburn unit at Nigg. It contributes up to eight percent of U. A group led by Neptune Energy were awarded the licence in the 20th round. The switchboards included Siemens Siprotec and Reyrolle protection relays.
Amongst other products, Chalmit have supplied the Cygnus Offshore complex with over 2000 Protectas for linear lighting and over 100 Evolution Flood Lights. The low voltage switchboards were manufactured to comply with a Form 4, Type 7 construction, with ratings ranging from 800A to 3200A, short circuit fault rating of 65kA for 1 second 176kA peak with fully insulated busbar systems. The award of this contract has allowed us to recruit an additional 100 people across our operations at Methil, Arnish and Burntisland, further bolstering the 100 new positions already created for the Cygnus jackets project, which included 15 new apprentice roles. The first three jackets were delivered last year and are already installed. Now you can with the Cygnus Alpha Street View experience from. Alpha has three platforms and Street View even allows users to brave the elements by walking across the bridges that link them. On some platforms, smoking in designated areas is allowed for obvious safety reasons.
Cygnus consists of two installations, Alpha and Bravo. Health and safety is a very important aspect of the oil and gas industry - you can learn more about some of the training you need to work offshore Most offshore oil and gas installations have self-service canteen-type catering arrangements, with a wide range of options to choose from. Discover more about the modern platform and the workers who call it home Via a series of candid video interviews with staff onboard, you can discover what it's actually like to live on a platform in the middle of the North Sea. Other companies contracted in August 2012 for the development of the Cygnus field include Heerema Fabrication Group and Burntisland Fabrications main fabrication works , Saipem export pipeline , Ensco drilling and Seaway Heavy Lifting Contractors transport and installation services. The contract covers the fabrication and construction services for the platform, including the design, procurement, pre-commissioning assistance, weighing and load-out. This gas field is the largest southern gas basin discovery in the North Sea for 25 years and at peak will produce enough gas to meet the needs of 1.
The Cygnus field has gross 2P reserves of approximately 18 billion cubic metres. Taking or possessing alcohol or controlled substances will result in termination of employment. The field is estimated to have 2P reserves of 636 billion cubic feet of gas. With estimated reserves of 18 billion cubic meters, it should eventually meet the needs of more than 1. The helicopters used for offshore travel vary in size and smaller helicopters can be used for inter-platform transfers. Most companies have a random drug testing policy. There is a good working relationship between all companies involved in delivering the Cygnus Project on time and safely.
Cygnus, the largest single producing gas field in the southern North Sea, is now available for a virtual tour. This fun and informative feature on Cygnus, the largest single producing gas field in the North Sea, has been commissioned by operator Neptune Energy and its partner. Spirit Energy has a 61. Subsequent subsurface data analysis, innovative geological thinking and leading-edge geophysics enabled this discovery to become the largest gas field development in the Southern North Sea in over 30 years. In August 2012, the project partners sanctioned investments to develop the field. There are also an array of videos to watch of the workforce talking about their experiences aboard the platform, as well as their jobs and daily routine.
The first phase of equipment was shipped in December 2013, some 7 months after contract award. You have the opportunity to experience areas including the helipad, wellhead, control room and accommodation, fitness, leisure and restaurant spaces. The Cygnus field is the biggest discovery in the southern North Sea for 30 years. The new module will be home to 66 workers and comprises living quarters, helideck and fire and rescue facilities. This fun and informative feature on Cygnus, the largest single producing gas field in the North Sea, has been commissioned by operator Neptune Energy and its partner Spirit Energy. It was drilled by a Noble Ronald Hoope jack-up rig. Installation work on the first platform began on April 29 this year, with sailaway of the project's gas wellhead components.
Shower and toilet facilities are not always en-suite, sometimes they are shared between a couple of cabins and there are also leisure and recreation areas. On most offshore oil and gas installations, accommodation is shared, a bit like the cabin on a large ferry. The 'time off' allowances dictated by the working patterns offshore mean you can live all across the country and not just in the areas you depart from. Spirit Energy has a 61. Overall, the Cygnus partnership is investing £1.
