The order, which has been designed, engineered, manufactured and supplied for the Canadian oilfield development Hebron Project, is a culmination of four years’ work for the fire, blast and heat protection specialist which has seen more than 50 members of the MTE team working on sites both across Canada and South Korea.
The order involved MTE supplying a range of its specialist fire and blast protection products to the offshore development located off the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. These included duplex stainless steel fire and blast walls, blast relief walls, louvres, wind walls, fire doors and windows.
“The Hebron project has been a significant scheme for MTE and is very much a demonstration of the company’s proven ability to deliver significant projects at scale with the technical capability to consistently do this on time and on budget,” says Anthony Jones, divisional director at MTE. “We have been providing in depth technical support from our offices in both the UK and Korea and the hook up of the project is now well underway which is an important milestone in the project.”
The contract, which was awarded to MTE in 2013 by Worley Parsons, is valued at approximately US$18.9 million (£14.5 million) and, it is expected that at peak, the Hebron oilfield will pump 150,000 b/d from its 52 well slots.
