Oil and gas services company TechnipFMC has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract from Husky Energy for the West White Rose Project in Eastern Canada.
The contract covers the supply and installation of subsea equipment including tie-in manifolds, flexible flowlines, and control umbilicals, which will connect the West White Rose Platform to the existing SeaRose FPSO vessel, TechnipFMC informed on Tuesday.
Hallvard Hasselknippe, President Subsea Projects for TechnipFMC, commented: “TechnipFMC is honored to be awarded the next phase in the Husky White Rose field development. It continues TechnipFMC’s strong positioning within Canada’s East Coast offshore industry.”
Husky sanctioned the West White Rose Project in May. The project will use a fixed platform tied back to the SeaRose FPSO vessel. Earlier in August, Husky awarded a contract to build a concrete gravity structure (CGS) for the fixed drilling platform to a general partnership between SNC-Lavalin, Dragados Canada and Pennecon.
The CGS, with an overall height of 145m and base diameter of 122m, will require 76,000m3 of concrete in its construction, which will take place in a purpose built dry dock from 2017 to 2021.
The main White Rose field is located approximately 350 kilometers (217 miles) east of St. John’s,Newfoundland and Labrador, on the eastern edge of the Jeanne d’Arc Basin in water depths of about 120 meters (393 feet).
First oil is expected in 2022 and the project is anticipated to achieve a gross peak production rate of approximately 75,000 barrels per day (bbls/day) in 2025, as development wells are drilled and brought online.
