Centrica F3-FA

Centrica has chosen the SIP-2 concept for an expected short field life of 7 years, after which the platform will be relocated to another offshore site. SPT Offshore managed to meet a 18 months EPCI schedule and the offshore installation took only 52 hours with a minimum offshore spread consisting of a cargo barge, towing tugs and an OCV.
