Xodus Reports £5 Mln in Contracts

Energy consultancy Xodus Group has revealed it has won £5 million worth of field development work over the past twelve months.

The company has recently been awarded two projects by Apache for its Storr and Seagull developments.

For Storr, Xodus will initially complete a conceptual assessment to streamline the options under consideration before embarking on the FEED for the selected option. The scope includes subsea pipeline design, flow assurance, materials and corrosion engineering coatings selection and structural and environmental support.

The second award was for subsea engineering associated with the Seagull development. Xodus previously completed the concept selection phase of the development and this new award takes the design of a planned tieback to the next stage. Like Storr, the scope includes pipeline engineering, materials and corrosion support, manifolds and structures engineering and environmental impact support.

The success coincides with the recent award of the company’s 10,000th assignment – a subsea front-end engineering and design (FEED) project in the North Sea.

In addition to subsea awards, Xodus has also won work with Woodside Energy (Senegal) to investigate the topsides design concept required for a redeployed Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility at the Rufisque, Sangomar and Sangomar Deep (RSSD) blocks located offshore in Senegal, West Africa.

This award followed earlier field development architecture studies performed by Xodus for Capricorn Senegal (Cairn) to identify and develop the field architecture for the deepwater SNE oil field. In this new study, Xodus determined the optimal topsides configuration and operating conditions for the FPSO.

Further success in Japan, Australia and Africa brought the total to £5million, including work outside of oil and gas.

Steve Swindell, managing director of Xodus Group, said: “We built our reputation on our field development expertise in the early days and although we are now a much more rounded company working in integrity, renewables and decommissioning, it is really encouraging to see that our clients continue to show faith in our talented team at the early stages of a project.

“At Xodus, we are constantly looking at ways to improve operations and reduce costs for our clients. The 10,000th assignment is a significant milestone for the company and was hard to imagine when the company launched more than twelve years ago. We can now look ahead to the next 10,000.”
