Project Characteristics

The Kuzey Marama Field is located in the gas-prone Thrace-Gallipoli Basin in the Sea of Marmara. IMPaC provided engineering and project management consultancy services for the design, fabrication and installation of TPAO’s Kuzey Marmara production platform (not normally manned) and associated pipelines in 43 m water depth.

The gas production platform is a 4-legged jacket with battered skirt piles with following weights:

  • Jacket: 482 t
  • Topside: 160 t
  • Piles: 4 off 108 t each

The associated 8" subsea gas pipeline and 2" pipeline for glycol injection between the platform and the onshore facilities run through a distance of 2.5 km.
