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.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
