Ramboll nets Culzean jacket design job

Maersk Oil UK has awarded Ramboll Oil & Gas the detailed design for the Culzean wellhead jacket.

The project, which was won in tight international competition, marks Ramboll’s first major involvement in the Culzean field, and it also marks the largest substructure design by Ramboll for the North Sea.

The appraisal well in the Maersk Oil operated HPHT Culzean field is located in the UK sector of the Central North Sea, nearly 242 kilometres (145 miles) East of Aberdeen.

If successfully developed, the Culzean discovery has the potential to meet around 5% of the UK’s gas demand in 2020/21.

Ramboll’s scope of work comprises the detailed design of the WHP jacket, associated piles and appurtenances, including sea-fastening. The platform will be standing in 90 metres of water (296 feet), which makes it the largest substructure designed by Ramboll so far for the North Sea.

Promising future perspective for Ramboll Oil & Gas in the UK

“This is the first of many opportunities at the Culzean field for us as jacket designers, but also for Ramboll Oil & Gas in general. We hope that Maersk Oil UK will continue the collaboration, and that Ramboll will be given the opportunity to support any future development requirements,” says Department Director of the Ramboll Oil & Gas Marine Structures Department, Bjørn V. Jønsson.

According to Jønsson, winning the project is a breakthrough as it opens up Ramboll’s opportunities in terms of new clients in a new market, which is perfectly in line with Ramboll’s strategy of gaining new, large international clients.

“Having our name on the paper for such a large platform is great exposure to yards and installation companies and a step towards working for other companies in Norway and the UK. With water depths reaching approximately 90 metres, Culzean gives us the chance to show that we can design for those clients who face deeper waters compared to the depths we normally design for”, he added.

The project stretches until mid-October 2014.
