Tecnomare has designed, on behalf of Phillips Petroleum Company E & A, a Steel Gravity platform, with integrated oil storage, to be installed in the Maureen Field, in the British Sector of the North Sea. Tecnomare’s interest in the Maureen Field development dates back to summer 1975. Since that time several proposals have been made concerning the structure to be used for the exploitation of the field.
