Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (April 03 – April 09).
Engie E&P Norge has awarded contracts for front end engineering and design (FEED) studies for modifications at the Gjøa platform in the North Sea to Kongsberg Maritime, Saipem and Hereema Marine Contractors.
The modifications are part of the work being done to enable the Skarfjell-licence (PL418) to connect to the Engie E&P-operated Gjøa platform through a subsea solution. Wintershall Norway AS is the operator in the Skarfjell-licence.
The contract is for a dynamic and static electro-hydraulic steel tube control umbilical, and associated hardware. Oceaneering plans to design and manufacture the umbilical at its facility in Panama City, Florida.
Led by TÜV SÜD Limited (NEL), this investment will provide Scotland with a unique global capability. TÜV SÜD AG has agreed to invest £11.1 million in its NEL site in East Kilbride to develop the CoE for subsea development, thanks to a £4.9 million research and development grant from Scottish Enterprise.
Suitable for all water depths, the LM-FPSO transforms the economics of harsh, remote offshore fields with savings of $500 million – $1.2 billion per project.
Trendsetter Engineering has secured multiple contracts to design and manufacture subsea production equipment for Noble Energy’s Leviathan project, a large natural gas field development off the coast of Israel.
Trendsetter’s scopes of work include multiple clamp connection systems, subsea distribution equipment, MEG filter modules, 2” connection systems and subsea manifolds.
