HOUSTON -- ACS Cobra Castor UTE has awarded Noble Denton a $21 million contract for project management and procurement support services for Castor's underground gas-storage development initiative.
The project, which will ensure a reliable gas supply to industrial and domestic consumers in Spain, will run over a four-year period and involve up to 25 Noble Denton personnel, the company says.
The technical specification of the work will comprise a wellhead platform bridge linked to a production, utilities, and quarters platform in approximately 60 m (197 ft) of water. The platform will support gas injection into the reservoir at flow rates up to 8 MMcm/d and gas withdrawal and transfer to shore at up to 25 MMcm/d.
"This initiative will see the redevelopment of the abandoned Amposta reservoir to provide back-up gas supplies for the Mediterranean coast of Spain in periods of high gas demand," says John Wishart, Noble Denton's group MD.
