Wood Group has started the detailed engineering for the Noble Energy’s Leviathan field project platform – including the topsides and the jacket.
The work follows the completion of the seven-month front-end engineering design (FEED) for the Leviathan field located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
The FEED and detail design has a total contract value of approximately $95 million.
The estimated 30,000 ton fixed platform is being initially designed to process 1.2 Bcf/d of gas, expandable to 2.1Bcf/d to accommodate future production. The platform will be installed in 86 meters water depth.
Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: “Wood Group’s global engineering experience in delivering large-scale offshore gas production facilities and proven ability to deliver safe, cost-effective and efficient solutions will help Noble Energy and its partners meet the high standards, cost requirements and delivery schedule of the Leviathan field development. We are proud to be a valued partner in this major project.”
