It’s nice to know such things are still made. Sometimes I feel like you need a permission slip to get up in the morning.

Although the hull was made in Korea, the topside facility is being built in Texas.

Olympus includes the fabrication and integration of a 5,000-ton, 192 person-on-board (POB) living quarters for the Shell Olympus Topsides located in the Gulf of Mexico. The structure includes four levels plus an elevated helideck. This 50,000-square-foot facility will sail away June 2013 following integration.

The project is also known as Mars B as it is an expansion of the Mars field. The platform will be known as Olympus.

There will also be significant subsea infrastructure.
