TYRA SOUTH EAST A - DESIGN OF UNMANNED WELLHEAD PLATFORM FOR
GAS CONDENSATE FIELD
Danish North Sea

As part of the Tyra field development in the Danish North Sea, operator, Maersk Oil, contracted Ramboll to
assist with a number of engineering services for the design of the Tyra South East A platform. Tyra South
East A came on stream in 2002.

From conceptualization to design
Tyra South East A is a minimum-facility wellhead platform tied-back to the Tyra East host platform. In the
design phase, Ramboll carried out:

Tie-in studies
Detailed engineering for the monotower substructure

A minimum-facility platform
Project data The platform design was based Maersk Oil’s STAR platform concept accommodating up to seven wells. The
Client: Maersk Oil concept for the platform was normally unmanned; – and only manned during daylight and favorable weather
Completion: 2002 conditions allowing safe access by boat. The primary escape was via FRB (fast rescue boat) to the nearby
standby boat. The minimum-facility platform concept implied that there were no personnel facilities other
Services we provided than a shelter for bad weather.

Technical safety & HSE
Structural & civil engineering The well stream at Tyra South East A is separated in a two phase separator and the liquid is exported at low
pressure outside the hydrate formation region, while gas is exported at high pressure and inhibited with
hydrate inhibitor. The production is exported to the Tyra East host platform where it is tied-in to the existing
gas treatment and condensate stabilization facilities.

The monotower substructure
Ramboll's scope of work comprised the detailed design of the monotower substructure sitting in 43.6 m water
depth. In connection with the monotower design, Ramboll carried out all required structural analyses such as:

In-place
Dynamic
Fatigue
Boat impact
Lifting and transportation
