Apollo joins UK marginal field initiative
Apollo Offshore Engineering has agreed to collaborate with ABT Oil and Gas in the Marginal Field Delivery Consortium.
ABTOG is a joint venture between Enegi Oil and ABTechnology. Other existing members of the consortium are Kongsberg Maritime and Braemar ACM Shipping.
Subsea/topsides engineering specialist Apollo is already working with ABTOG on expanding a portfolio of fixed and tethered solutions for marginal offshore fields, the aim being to limit capex and to ensure the solutions can be normally unattended, keeping opex to a minimum.
ABTOG expects to announce further collaborations in the coming weeks including in process engineering and project management.
However, the JV has ended discussions on a previously announcedmemorandum of understanding with Wood Group PSN after failing to strike an agreement.
