Project Characteristics

The Yuri Korchagin field is located in the Russian waters of the North Caspian Sea at a sea depth of 11-13 m.


Foramex Petroleum And Construction provided special expertise in ice technology and shallow water technology and developed a conceptual design for a fixed offshore ice-resistant platform. The platform is of piled jacket type taking deck with accommodation facilities.


Extra piles are required to withstand ice loads resulting from the interaction with pressure ridges. Conical collars are arranged at water level to reduce dynamic forces generated by level ice sheets and rafted ice.
