Crondall Energy to Deliver Concept Study for Pharis Energy’s Pilot Field

Crondall Energy, the floating production and subsea engineering specialist, has secured a contract by Pharis Energy to deliver the concept select study for the Pilot field development in the Central North Sea.

Pharis Energy hopes to become the first operator to use steam flooding in a major offshore project – one of the concepts to be explored as part of Crondall Energy’s concept study, the company said.

The study will cover a range of development approaches for the Pilot field and includes the facilities, marine and subsea scope of work.

Crondall Energy’s engineers will develop and assess facilities and subsea configurations as well as various oil separation and artificial lift technologies to determine an optimum solution for the development.

Crondall Energy’s managing director, Duncan Peace, said: “We are very pleased to continue our work with Pharis Energy on this exciting project and we welcome the confidence shown in our engineering teams to develop a commercially viable concept for the project. The breadth and complexity of this development play to the strengths of our multidisciplinary team and we look forward to progressing the study.”

The Pilot field is located in block 21/27a of the UK central North Sea and is estimated to contain 230 MMbbls of proven plus probable oil-in-place, of which around 60 MMbbls will be recoverable in a waterflood scenario whilst 113 MMbbls could be expected to be recovered in a steam flood.

Stephen Brown, Pharis Energy’s CEO, added: “We are delighted to be progressing the Pilot project and continuing our good working relationship with the folk at Crondall Energy. The Crondall Energy team not only know the theory of how to go about developing offshore oil fields but also really understand the practicalities of weaving the development concept together with the team of engineers, contractors, rig and vessel owners, consultants and suppliers, into a financeable project.”

Crondall Energy previously supported the project by reviewing the CAPEX for the development.

Pharis Energy holds a 100% interest in the field which was first discovered by Fina in 1989. It has since been appraised with seven reservoir penetrations, including a horizontal well test that flowed more than 1,800 b/d from a short horizontal well.

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
