The topside for Marathon Oil’s new Alba B3 platform is getting ready for a sail away to its next stop as the platform moves towards completion.
The preparations for a sail away to the Heerema Vlissingen yard are in full swing from its current location at the Heerema Zwijndrecht yard in the Netherlands.
The lower part of the platform is currently being built at the topside’s new location where it is expected to arrive this weekend.
The Alba B3 gas compression platform will be bridge-linked to the existing Alba B2 platform located offshore Equatorial Guinea.
Heerema won the contract to build the platform in April 2013.
