The Living Quarter Barges (LQB) in
the Caspian Sea are an example of the practical approach that is
involved in our activities.
The drilling sites in the northern
part of the Caspian Sea are artificial islands created out
of sand and stone, and protected by a sheet piling
construction. On these islands of 100 x 100 mtrs the drilling rigs
and the associated equipment is placed. However, the temporary
nature of the drilling operation means there is no permanent
accommodation for the personnel members.
Therefore we provide a 'Living
Quarter Barge' near the island during drilling operations. It is
placed at a site that was levelled at the seabed. The accommodation
unit is connected to the island by means of a footbridge. An LQB
can house and care for 120 people.
To prevent damage to the Living
Quarter Barges or to prevent its movement by drifting ice,
so-called 'Ice Protection Structures'
(IPS) are placed on both sides of the LQBs during winter.
