TechnipFMC Wins North Sea EPCI Project

TechnipFMC has won a significant Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) contract from Shell for Jackdaw development in the UK North Sea.

The contract covers 30 km of tieback pipeline from the new Jackdaw platform to Shell’s Shearwater platform and associated risers, spool pieces, subsea structures and umbilicals.

Tiebacks use pipe-in-pipe technology designed for high pressure, high temperature applications.

Jonathan Landes, President of Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented: Our strong technical track record and capabilities in design, engineering, construction and installation were key to our award-winning success. ”

July, S.Hell said to develop the Jack Doggas fieldabout 250 kilometers east of Aberdeen, Scotland.

The Jackdaw gas field is 100% owned and operated by Shell UK affiliate BG International, which received regulatory approval earlier this year and made a final investment decision (FID) to develop the Jackdaw gas field.

Scheduled to come online in the mid-2020s, Jackdaw will consist of a non-permanent wellhead platform (WHP) with four subsea production wells and a 31-kilometer pipeline from the Jackdaw WHP to Shell’s Shearwater gas hub.

Peak production from this field is estimated to be equivalent to 40,000 barrels of oil per day. This represents more than 6% of UK North Sea gas production projected for the middle of this decade.

Last month, Norwegian engineering firm Aker Solutions got a contract from shellBuild an offshore platform for the Jackdaw gas field in the UK.

To keep costs down, the field is generated using a permanently unmanned wellhead platform tied to a nearby Shearwater platform.

British regulator Approved Shell Remediation Plan Developing Jackdaw in June after being first done Rejected for environmental reasons October last year.
