The ice-resistant platform will be deployed at Gazprom’s Kamennomysskoye-Sea field in the Kara Sea. (Credit: Gazprom) Gazprom said that construction has started on an ice-resistant platform to be deployed at the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas field in the Ob Bay of the Kara Sea on the Arctic shelf.The platform’s construction is taking place at the shipyard of United Shipbuilding’s Southern Shipbuilding and Repair Center in the Astrakhan Region in southern Russia.The Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas field is said to have gas reserves of around 555 billion cubic meters. The offshore gas field is slated to begin production in 2025 and is expected to produce 15 billion cubic meters per year.Why Gazprom wants an ice-resistant platform is needed for the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas fieldAccording to Gazprom, the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas field is located in a marine environment known for having low temperatures of up to -60° celsius, heavy storms, and shallow depths of 5-12m. Besides, the field is contained in thick and dense freshwater ice, said the company.The Russian gas producer said that the development of the field is set to become the first shelf project in the world to be executed in such harsh ice and climate conditions. Owing to such factors, the company decided to go with a special ice-resistant platform as the main facility for the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas project.The ice-resistant platform will have dimensions of 135m in length, 69m in width, and a height of 41m from the base to the helicopter pad. The platform will weigh over 40,000 tons.Gazprom revealed that the Kamennomysskoye-Sea platform will house main and auxiliary drilling modules, operational and energy complexes, and living quarters to accommodate 120 personnel among other things.The ice-resistant platform will be used for constructing 33 main directional production wells and a further 22 wells later on for sustaining production rates, which will be placed on satellite ice-resistant conductor platforms that do not need the permanent presence of personnel.The gas drawn from the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas field will be sent through pipelines to reach onshore into a gas treatment unit and a booster compressor station. Following its treatment, the gas will be fed into Russia’s Unified Gas Supply System.Gazprom stated: “The full scope of modeling and design for the ICP was performed by Russia’s leading shipbuilding research institutions. The construction process will involve a number of cutting-edge technical solutions to ensure a high level of industrial and environmental safety, as well as operational integrity of the facility.” According to Gazprom, the ice-resistant platform for the Kamennomysskoye-Sea gas field will have dimensions of 135m in length, 69m in width, and a height of 41m from the base to the helicopter pad

Keane’s latest autobiography contains plenty of explosive tales and admissions.O’Neill maintains he’s unaware of the headlines generated by the book, but says he was always ready for it to cause controversy.

Authorities are reporting that a Florida man claimed that he attempted to break into a home because his horse got into the homeowner’s yard.The incident occurred Thursday at a home in Pasco County.The homeowner identified as Steve Ferguson told authorities that he caught the suspect, Lonnie Maddox, breaking into his home and confronted him. Maddox told Ferguson that it was actually his horse who broke into the home and that he was only trying to get her.When authorities arrived, Maddox then told them that the horse wandered into Ferguson’s yard through a broken fence so he went after it. Once inside the yard Maddox says he became curious about the inside of the home because he was considering renting it.Surveillance video from the home shows Maddox walking around the home with the horse. Maddox then tries to get into the home through the front door but when he was unsuccessful, he then breaks a window.Authorities found the horse several blocks away from the home but it was later discovered that the horse did not belong to Maddox.The horse has since been returned to it’s rightful owner while Maddox was taken into custody and charged with burglary of a dwelling.
