The Kraken field, to be developed using the Armada Kraken FPSO, is a large heavy oil accumulation located in the East Shetland basin, to the west of the North Viking Graben some 125 kilometers east of the Shetland Islands.

The hook up of the Submerged Turret Production (STP) buoy mooring system to the FPSO was completed on February 15 and a full rotation test performed so that the vessel is now on station and securely moored.

According to EnQuest, commissioning work will continue on the topsides. Reconstruction of the turret area pipework and connection of the risers and umbilicals to the swivel stack is being undertaken followed by commissioning of the subsea infrastructure.

Delivery of first oil in 2Q 2017 is on track, EnQuest said in an operational update on Friday.

The FPSO for the field has been supplied by Malaysia’s Bumi Armada. The Armada Kraken FPSO vessel can handle a peak fluid rate of 460,000 barrels per day (bpd) and 80,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd), 275,000 bpd of water injection, 20 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) of gas handling and has a storage capacity of 600,000 barrels.
