Salient features are described of the heaviest jacket structure ever to be launched from a barge, which is now being fabricated at Ardersier, Scotland. Launch weight will be 25,000 tons. To establish the platform configuration, a conceptual engineering design was carried out first. The complete design of the structure and the module support frame then followed. A special barge (semisubmersible) has been built to handle the job. The jacket will be placed in 1981 in the UK North Sea Block 211/19 for the Conoco group's Murchison field platform.
