Sembcorp Marine subsidiary, Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms (SMOP), has awarded Frames a contract for the supply of two seawater electrochlorination systems, one wellhead control panel complete with a hydraulic power unit, and three hydraulic power units for topside and subsea valves designated for the Culzean gas field.
The development, consisting out of a wellhead platform, central processing platform, and living quarters, will be operated by Maersk. It is a high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) gas field situated 145 miles East of Aberdeen. All of the equipment is built according to Maersk specifications. The Culzean gas field is expected to be capable of providing around 5% of the UK’s total gas consumption by 2020/21.
“We are proud that we have received this award from Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms and that we are a part of this project,” says Sjoert Bolhuis, sales manager at Frames Flow Control & Safeguarding. “This is not the first time we have cooperated with Sembcorp Marine. Together, we’ve already realized several successful projects, such as FPSOs P-68 and P-71 and Pioneiro de Libra FPSO.”
