GREAT YARMOUTH, UK -- ODE has completed work on the Durango field development in the southern North Sea. The topsides modification work for the project was performed by ODE's brownfield engineering team based in Great Yarmouth and was achieved without accident or incident.

The Durango development, which is operated by Bridge North Sea with overall field development managed by Asset Development and Improvement (ADIL), is a 14.3 km (8.9 mi) subsea tieback to the Perencos Waveney platform. ODE was awarded the contract by ADIL on behalf of Bridge for the topside modifications to the host facility including the FEED, detailed design, procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up assistance of the platform.

The Durango products are transmitted via a pipeline to the Waveney platform where the product is separated into gas, condensate, and water using the Waveney facilities. It is then metered and recombined for export to the Bacton Terminal facilities via the Lancelot Area Pipeline System (LAPS).

The platform has now been designed to facilitate operations in either Waveney or Durango mode. The subsea well is controlled by umbilical from the Waveney platform control system. The platform is operated remotely from the Great Yarmouth Control Center.
