Contract let for Kinneil degasification work

By OGJ editors

BP Exploration Operating Co. Ltd. has let a contract to a unit of Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering & Construction Group for work related to the debottlenecking of the Forties Pipeline System crude degasification facilities at BP Exploration’s Kinneil Terminal in Scotland.

The Foster Wheeler unit will handle engineering, procurement, and construction management under the new contract. It has completed pre-front end design and FEED for the project, which will allow the terminal to handle high gas-to-oil-ratio unstabilized crude oil and natural gas liquids.

Expected to be completed in 2013, the debottlenecking involves plant modifications that include improvements to heater and process-control systems as well as new facilities, including crude coolers and a cooling-water system.

The Forties Pipeline System has nominal capacity exceeding 1 million b/d. It handles oil and gas liquids from more than 30 fields and the St. Fergus gas terminal.
