Neptune Energy has let an integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract to TechnipFMC for the Seagull project in the central North Sea (OGJ Online, Mar. 29, 2019). The contract—valued at $75-250 million by TechnipFMC—is the second call-off under the recently announced 5-year strategic global alliance agreement between the two firms.

TechnipFMC will manufacture, deliver, and install subsea equipment including production and water wash pipelines, umbilicals, subsea structures, and control systems.

The high-pressure, high-temperature oil field will be developed with as many as four subsea wells drilled through a manifold. A 5-km subsea pipeline will connect the manifold with the Hebron pipeline system, which will carry produced fluids to the BP PLC-operated ETAP facility.

Seagull oil will flow from there through the Forties pipeline system to the Kinneil terminal at Grangemouth. Gas will move through the Central Area Transmission System to the processing terminal at Teesside.

Seagull interests are Neptune, 35%; BP, 50%; and Japan Petroleum Exploration Co. Ltd., 15%.
