McDermott Completes Sail Away Process Module on Tyra Redevelopment Project


HOUSTON, September 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — McDermott International has successfully completed the departure of the Tyra East G (TEG) gas processing module on the Tyra redevelopment project for TotalEnergies and its Danish Underground Consortium partners Noreco and Nordsøfonden.

The module weighs approximately 18,700 tons (17,000 metric tons) and embarks on September 1st from the McDermott factory in Batam, Indonesia. This milestone is the culmination of more than 18.8 million hours of process module engineering and construction work.

“This is an incredible step in a large scale and complex project. As the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contractor for the Tyra redevelopment, we leveraged synergies throughout the project lifecycle while emphasizing safety,” said Tarek Kawash, Senior Vice President, Onshore of McDermott. “We are proud that our work contributes to the vision of TotalEnergies and the pursuit of sustainable operations in the North Sea.”

The TEG module will be a crucial part of Tyra II; the new high-tech hub for from Denmark production of natural gas and will reduce CO2 emissions by 30%.

“The departure of the process module is of key importance to the Tyra refit project as it marks the conclusion of onshore construction, and with this all remaining work on Tyra II will take place in the Danish North Sea. The size and scale of the process module is simply amazing, and it will be fabulous to unite this last major component with the remaining platforms on Tyra’s field next month,” said Eric DelattreManaging Director of TotalEnergies Exploration & Production Denmark.

The Tyra redevelopment project represents the largest oil and gas investment ever made in the Danish North Sea. Once the refitted Tyra II is back in service, it is expected to deliver 2.8 billion cubic meters of gas per year, which is 80% of the planned Danish gas production. Tyra II will guarantee the continuous production of natural gas with 30% less CO2 emissions, thus contributing significantly to from Denmark energy security by reducing Denmark and the EU’s dependence on Russian gas. The new facilities will be located approximately 139 miles (225 kilometers) west of Denmark in the North Sea.
