The Captain field, operated by Ithaca Energy, is in the UK sector of the North Sea, around 130 km north of Aberdeen. Captain produces crude oil deposited within several reservoirs. Production began over 20 years ago and through EOR technology developments the field has advanced, supporting life extension. Stage 2 of the project was sanctioned by Ithaca in April this year.
During this contract Worley will complete the engineering design and procurement of equipment packages to enable increased oil recovery and extend production of the Captain field.
The company completed the FEED for Stage 2 of the project last year after the successful execution of Stage 1, supporting the topside design.
Worley's work will continue to be led by its Aberdeen office and supported by its global integrated delivery team in Hyderabad, India. This contract will secure work for more than 60 onshore personnel.
“The North Sea is a mature and aging basin and doesn’t come without its challenges. Worley’s brownfield experience and commitment to finding sustainable solutions for our customers further strengthens our existing relationship with Ithaca Energy. We look forward to working on this project as we continue this new chapter for the UKCS,” said Daniel McAteer, Vice President, Aberdeen Operations.
