TEHRAN – Platform 8 of Iran’s Hendijan oil field was installed on its designated offshore spot in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday, Shana reported.

As reported, the 1,000-ton structure is planned to produce 10,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil from the field.

Platforms 7 and 8 of Hendijan oil field had been loaded earlier this month at Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex (ISOIC)’s Bandar-Abbas Yard to be shipped toward their offshore spot.

According to the Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC) which is in charge of the field’s development, the installation of these platforms will ensure sustained production in this field while paving the way for increasing the field’s production capacity.

“The technical preparations for the installation of these two platforms, each weighing more than a thousand tons, has begun in Hendijan field,” IOOC Director of Engineering and Construction Ali Ahouchehr said at the time.

“These platforms are designed to produce 10,000 barrels of oil, which means the two of them will produce 20,000 barrels,” Ahouchehr said.

The official noted that the installation operations would be carried out in accordance with international safety protocols and standards in the offshore sector.

The Hendijan field is located in the north-west section of the Persian Gulf, 10km north-east of Bahregansar platform.

The Iranian Offshore Oil Company is a subsidiary of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) that operates in southern Iran. Its activities cover important areas of the Persian Gulf and its main operations are in Bushehr Province and on Kharg Island, Sirri Island, and Lavan Island.
