Maersk Oil lets FEED contract for Culzean project in North Sea

Maersk Oil UK has let a 10-month front-end engineering and design contract to Intecsea, a unit of WorleyParsons Group, for work on its Culzean ultra high-pressure, high-temperature gas-condensate development about 145 miles east of Aberdeen in the UK central North Sea.

The Culzean development, which lies in 88 m of water, is one of the largest gas discoveries of recent years in the UK North Sea. The reservoir lies 4,300 m below sea level.

The contract includes optional detailed design scopes also in support of the Culzean project. Work on the project began at the start of July and will be executed in the Intecsea UK office.

Maersk Oil earlier this year let a FEED contract for topsides for the field (OGJ Online, May 29, 2014). Maersk Oil and co-venturers JX Nippon Exploration & Production (UK) Ltd. and Britoil (BP) have chosen a standalone facility to develop the discovery, consisting of a wellhead platform, central processing platform with flare tower and separate living quarters, and utility platform.
