Wood Group begins detailed engineering of Leviathan

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


Wood Group recently completed the seven month front end engineering design (FEED) for Noble Energy’s Leviathan Field Development Project in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and has started the detailed engineering for the platform – including the topsides and jacket. The FEED and detail design has a total contract value of approximately US$95 million.

The estimated 30 000 t fixed platform is being initially designed to process 1.2 billion ft3/d of gas, expandable to 2.1 billion ft3/d to accommodate future production. The platform will be installed in 86 m water depth.

The Leviathan project adds to Wood Group’s portfolio of projects executed for Noble Energy. Wood Group previously designed the Tamar platform topsides; the Tamar onshore compression plant which receives natural gas from the Mari-B and Tamar fields in the Mediterranean Sea; and the topsides and jacket for the Alen production platform, offshore Equatorial Guinea.

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: “Wood Group’s global engineering experience in delivering large-scale offshore gas production facilities and proven ability to deliver safe, cost-effective and efficient solutions will help Noble Energy and its partners meet the high standards, cost requirements and delivery schedule of the Leviathan field development. We are proud to be a valued partner in this major project.”
