    The LQ provides luxurious accommodation for up to 140 personnel in 70 self-contained cabins with integrated wet rooms and incorporates a galley, recreation areas, a gymnasium and dining room, a medical suite, offices, an HLO office facility, elevator, switch rooms and a main control room with a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system throughout. It utilises the latest Safedeck designed helideck and parking bay, which includes a Deck Integrated Fire Fighting System (DIFFS), meeting the most recent statutory requirements. DIFFS is a revolutionary fire fighting system that includes multiple nozzles installed flush to the deck which automatically extend and spray pressurised seawater evenly on to the deck in case of a fire. The Safedeck design ensures that the liquids used in such a situation are able to drain away safely.

    The well-equipped modular living quarters has a 25 year design life and incorporates a blast and fire rating providing safe and comfortable offshore accommodation for Nexen’s operations.
