Total E&P Danmark A/S has awarded Emerson a contract to provide wellhead pressure monitoring technology to enhance safety during the multi-year redevelopment project to extend the life of Danmark’s biggest gas field.
The Tyra field in the Danish part of the North Sea has been in production for more than 30 years but is today suffering from seabed subsidence. Since production started in the 1980’s, the seabed has subsided by more than five meters, reducing the air gap between the sea level and the bottom of the platforms. In order to keep the Tyra field in production, Total E&P Danmark is replacing the existing wellhead platforms with new and elevated topsides. The 13-meter-high jacket extensions and new topsides will be installed on top of the existing jacket structures.
