February 16 - The heavy lift barge Lan Jing has helped complete the installation of the Hasbah tie-in platform, which Saudi Aramco says is a new record for heavy lift operations in its Arabiyah-Hasbah gas fields project.

The platform, which weighed around 5,000 tonnes, was lifted using Lan Jing's 7,500-tonne capacity crane.

The heavy lift barge has also completed the installation of the 4,600-tonne Arabiyah field tie-in platform and the 1,800-tonne intermediate injection platform.

The new tie-in platform was installed as part of ongoing work to complete the Arabiyah-Hasbah offshore gas fields project, which is expected to produce 2.5 billion standard cubic feet of natural gas per day through the Wasit Gas Plant when completed.
