MatthewsDaniel completes Heidelberg Marine Warranty

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, November 3, 2015 – MatthewsDaniel has safely completed its Marine Warranty Services for Anadarko on the installation of the Heidelberg spar in the Gulf of Mexico. The installation was done utilizing the semi-submersible crane vessel Thialf.  MatthewsDaniel provided project engineering review and attendance monitoring for all critical operations including the lift and set of the spar production topside, living quarters module, stair towers, platform crane, flare boom, and cellar deck extension.

Kevin Jarman, CEO, MatthewsDaniel, says, “MatthewsDaniel enjoys a long-standing relationship with Anadarko, dating from our appointment in 1996 as Marine Warranty Surveyor for the transport and installation of the world's first production spar.  This is the latest example of MatthewsDaniel providing valued marine expertise for transport and installation of their high-value assets.”

Located in the Green Canyon Area of the Gulf of Mexico, the Heidelberg joint-venture is led by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and features a truss-spar design. The spar dimensions are 33.5 m diameter, 184 m length and gross weight of nearly 20,000 tonnes, moored by nine combination chain/polyester mooring legs in 1,600 m water depth.

Installation of the topsides involved transportation to its location 390 miles offshore from Corpus Christi, Texas and a lift of 9,255 tonnes to set the main topside in place.
