Subsea 7’s Culzean Job Under Way with Cutting of First Steel

Subsea 7 has cut first steel on subsea structures for Maersk Oil’s Culzean project at Nigg Energy Park fabrication yard.

The work is part of a $150-million subsea, umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) contract the company announced in September last year.

The contract scope includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of gas export pipeline connected to the Central Area Transmission System (CATS), and a pipe-in-pipe providing insulation for the transportation of the condensate to the in-field Floating, Storage and Offloading facility (FSO).

Subsea 7 will also provide subsea structures, tie-ins to the Culzean platform facilities and pre-commissioning expertise.

The company plans to start offshore operations in 2017.

Culzean is an ultra-high-pressure, high-temperature field located about 242 kilometers (145 miles) east of Aberdeen in the UK sector of the Central North Sea.

Production from the field is expected to start in 2019 and continue for at least 13 years, with plateau production of 60,000-90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
