TechnipFMC to connect Seagull to North Sea ETAP complex
PARIS – Neptune Energy has awarded TechnipFMC an integrated EPCI contract for the subsea Seagull project in the UK central North Sea.
This is the second call-off under the recently announced five-year global alliance agreement between the two companies.
TechnipFMC will construct and install wellheads, xmas trees, an umbilical, flowlines, a four-slot manifold, a subsea wye structure, and a subsea control system.
The offshore construction campaign is scheduled to start in 2Q 2020.
Seagull is an HP/HT oil field in a water depth of around 90 m (295 ft). Neptune plans four subsea production wells, a new 5-km (3.1-mi) pipe-in-pipe production line, and a 17-km (10.6-mi) control umbilical.
Production will be exported through the Heron pipeline system to the BP-operated ETAP (Eastern Trough Area Project) complex 17 km (10.6 mi) to the north, with oil sent from there through the Forties pipeline system to Grangemouth, Scotland.
Gas from the development will eventually land at the CATS processing terminal at Teesside, northeast England.
BP and JAPEX are the other partners in Seagull.
