ADIL awarded Vulcan East tieback

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK -- Bridge Energy has contracted consultants ADIL to manage development of the Vulcan East gas field in the UK southern North Sea.

Under the $2.85-million contract, ADIL will provide personnel and systems to manage all activities for the program, which involves a subsea tieback to existing infrastructure close to the field in block 49/21.

Bridge discovered Vulcan East in 2006 and expects to deliver first gas in the second half of 2011.

The contract should run until end-2011. ADIL has recruited three dedicated staff for the project, including a project engineer and a process engineer.

ADIL also developed the Victoria gas field in the same sector in 2008 for Bridge’s predecessor company Silverstone Energy.
