Amec Foster Wheeler has announced the award of a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract by Chevron North Sea Limited to an Amec Foster Wheeler company for the Captain Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) development in the North Sea.
The value of the contract has not been announced.
According to the company, the Captain EOR project will use polymer injection technology to increase oil and gas recovery, helping to further establish the offshore full-field application of polymer EOR technology for possible application elsewhere in the North Sea and globally.
The scope of work includes FEED design of the proposed Bridge Linked Platform (BLP) ‘B’ which will be utilised to store, mix and pump polymer. The company will also be responsible for the BLP brownfield tie-ins to the existing facilities as well as minor works on the Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) unit.
“This is a prestigious and challenging project that encompasses both greenfield and brownfield engineering, procurement and project management services, so is an excellent fit for our capabilities,” said Nick Shorten, Managing Director of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Greenfield business in Europe.
The Captain EOR project is the fourth phase of development of the Chevron-operated Captain Field, which is located approximately 68 miles offshore north of Aberdeen.
