New Offshore Completes Workover Deck for the Nansen Spar

Monday, September 29, 2003
New Offshore, Inc. has completed the fabrication of a deck extension for Kerr McGee’s Nansen spar, a deepwater (3,678 feet) floating production facility in East Breaks block 602 in the Gulf of Mexico. The deck extension will support compression equipment. Fabrication of the 40-ton, 24-foot by 68-foot structure was carried out at New Offshore’s waterfront fabrication facility in Morgan City and included the fabrication of five plate girders. Because the Nansen spar is a floating structure, all fabrication and welding was performed in accordance with requirements of the U.S. Mineral Management Service, U.S. Coast Guard and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). ABS issued a certification of compliance on completion. The structure was loaded out in August onto an offshore supply vessel provided by Kerr-McGee, for installation on Nansen.
