Corpus Christi, TX: Tamar Platform En Route to Israel

Tamar production platform has left the Keiwit Shipyards in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA, and is now on the way to its location offshore Israel, according to Globes, the Israeli financial newspaper.

It took 18 months for the 280 m platform to be completed, and the project has been described as “the largest infrastructure project in Israeli history.”

Noble Energy, operator of the Tamar field, did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.

The Tamar platform will be located in approximately 800 feet of water and will be able to process 1.2 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day. The Tamar field is estimated to contain 8.4 trillion cubic feet of gas and will be produced through several subsea wells connected to the platform by 150 km long flow lines. The single-lift topsides facility has four deck levels and weighs nearly 10,000 tons.

Globes further reports that the platform is expected to reach its destination during the fourth quarter this year. First production is scheduled for March 2013.

Noble Energy operates Tamar with a 36 percent working interest. Other owners are Isramco Negev 2 with 28.75 percent, Delek Drilling with 15.625 percent, Avner Oil Exploration with 15.625 percent, and Dor Gas Exploration with the remaining four percent.
