Chevron North Sea Limited has awarded Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for its Captain EOR project in the North Sea to Wood Group Kenny Caledonia.
Wood Group Kenny Caledonia Limited was awarded the contract for the subsea engineering of the trees, wellheads, controls and the polymer injection flowlines to the subsea injection wells. The workscope will be carried out in Aberdeen.
Offshore Energy Today previously reported that Chevron also awarded a FEED contract for Captain EOR project to Amec Foster Wheeler.
“The Captain EOR project represents an opportunity to increase resource capture at the Captain Field. Advancing the project to the FEED stage supports Chevron’s commitment to maximizing the economic recovery of the U.K.’s hydrocarbon reserves. These contract awards underline our confidence in the expertise of the U.K. supply chain to support projects in the North Sea,” said Craig May, managing director, Chevron Upstream Europe business unit.
Minister of State for Energy, Matthew Hancock, said: “Following the good news for the North Sea in the Autumn Statement it is great to see that the first contracts for this project have been awarded to U.K. companies. Making the most of Britain’s domestic energy will make us less reliant on imports from abroad and make sure we get the best deal for customers.”
The Chevron-operated Captain Field is located offshore approximately 68 miles north of Aberdeen. In 2013, net daily production at the Captain Field, a joint venture between Chevron (85 percent interest) and Dana Petroleum (E&P) Ltd (15 percent interest), averaged 25,000 barrels of liquids and 3 million cubic feet of natural gas. The Captain EOR project will apply polymer injection technology to increase resource recovery at the Captain Field.
