Heerema Fabrication Group has completed the process module to be installed on BP PLC’s Andrew platform in the central North Sea to accommodate production from Kinnoull oil and gas field to be developed subsea.
The 750-tonne process module is 18 m long, 13 m wide, and 28 m high. It set sail for the field Oct. 4. A bolt-on installation will attach the module to the side of the Andrew platform.
Kinnoull is the largest of three reservoirs in BP’s Andrew area development project. Production from three subsea wells is to peak at 45,000 boe/d.
The development will extend Andrew area production beyond 2020. Andrew production is shut in during construction.
