The company previously awarded a FEED contract for the Tolmount development to Wood Group in April 2017. Under the scope of the deal, Wood Group would provide topsides, jacket, pipeline, flow assurance and subsea engineering expertise for the development’s offshore assets, export pipeline, and the onshore terminal.

Recently, Premier awarded a UK North Sea high-resolution 3D survey project on the Tolmount field to Shearwater Geoservices.
