Subsea 7 has won the award of a subsea, umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) contract by Maersk Oil. The company will make and install underwater equipment for the new Culzean gas field in the central North Sea.
The Culzean, one of the largest gas discoveries offshore UK, is located in Block 22/25 of the Central North Sea at a water depth of approximately 90 m. Engineering works have already commenced for the Maersk Oil Culzean project, with the first phase of offshore operations due to commence in Q2 2017. This is a sizeable pre-commissioning SURF project and a significant win for IKM in an extremely competitive environment.
The Culzean gas condensate field in the UK Central North Sea is expected to produce enough gas to meet 5% of total UK demand at peak production in 2020/21.
