Talent and innovation: key drivers for success In 1964 Petroland N.V., the company that became Total E&P Nederland B.V. in 2003, started its activities in the Dutch gas industry. This year we celebrate our fiftieth anniversary. The history of Total in the Netherlands is shaped by some impressive highlights and innovations; we have grown from pioneer to major player.

Column In 1985 Total E&P Nederland B.V. introduced the first unmanned, remotely monitored platforms on the Dutch continental shelf, and in 1988 the world’s first three horizontal gas wells were drilled from the Zuidwal platform in the Waddenzee. In 1997 Total E&P Nederland B.V. started

Exhibitor Exhibitornews News Petrofac JSD 6000

ULSTEIN design for Petrofac construction vessel Petrofac is to build the Petrofac JSD 6000 deepwater derrick lay vessel, a customized ULSTEIN SOC 5000 design that was developed by Dutch design company Ulstein Sea of Solutions. The vessel will be constructed at ZPMC yard in China and available to the market early 2017. The dynamically-positioned Petrofac JSD 6000 is a unique, innovative design combining for the first time a revolving main crane with 5,000 mt lifting capacity, a 2,000 mt J-lay system via a moonpool and a 600 mt S-lay system that runs through a center firing line below main deck. This double deck configuration is a distinctive feature in Ulstein Sea of Solutions’ designs.
