Framo Bags Subsea Contract for Shell's Draugen Field (Norway)

Framo Engineering, a Schlumberger company, today announced that A/S Norske Shell has awarded the company a 100-million USD contract for the supply of a complete subsea multiphase booster pump system for the Draugen Field in Norway.

The contract includes a complete system for topside power and control, the power and control umbilical, and the complete subsea pump module and manifold. The subsea multiphase booster pump system, which will be installed at some 250 meters water depth, has been designed to contribute to increased oil production in the Draugen Field.

“The world’s first prototype subsea multiphase pump was installed at the Draugen Field in 1994 by Framo. We are pleased to have Shell, a major international subsea player and instrumental in the early phases of the development of our subsea pump systems, engaging our multiphase pumps and subsea process systems,” said Ole Steine, managing director, Framo Engineering. “We look forward to the challenge entrusted to us by Shell, and we are confident in the technology and our Framo team’s support to our customer for this important subsea industry milestone.”

The Draugen subsea multiphase booster pump system will be assembled and tested at the new Framo Engineering advanced test facility in Hosoey, Norway. Field installation is planned for the summer of 2014.
