Tamar Topsides and Jacket - Ingleside, Texas
Kiewit fabricated the topsides for the Tamar field development located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Kiewit also fabricated the jacket and suction piles for the project.
In October 2012, the Tamar platform was loaded out and installed at its fixed location in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, offshore Israel. The platform is set in approximately 800 ft. of water and has a total production capacity of 1.6 BSCFD. Sales from Tamar began in March 2013, a mere four years after discovery. Production from Tamar was critical to Israel, which had previously imported most of its natural gas.
