The tow-out of the platform destined for the Hebron Field located off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador has commenced.
The tow commenced from the Bull Arm Construction Site in Mosquito Cove, NL.
The Hebron field is located in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin approximately 350 kilometers offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. The field was first discovered in 1980, and is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.
The platform, which measures about 220 meters in height, is to travel at about two to three knots per hour and is expected to take up to two weeks to reach its final destination, pending suitable weather conditions.
