ABERDEEN, UK– Amec Foster Wheeler has awarded Jee a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for a jacket rigid polymer injection riser package, including J-tubes.

Chevron is adopting the technology to boost recovery from its Captain heavy-oil field in the Moray Firth offshore eastern Scotland.

Amec Foster Wheeler will engineer a new bridge-linked platform which will be tied into Captain’s existing facilities to store, mix, and pump the polymer.

Jonathan McGregor, head of engineering at Jee, said: “The ever-changing downhole environment represents a challenge when injecting chemical agents into existing reservoir fluids. The work carried out by Jee’s … engineers on this innovative project will allow for informed decisions to be made, with the aim of successful long-term oil recovery.”

The project also involves use of advanced 4D seismic imaging, horizontal drilling, and pump technology. Development drilling is due to take place from 2015-2020.
