TechnipFMC banks Fenja iEPCI, with longest ETH pipeline planned

Written by  OE Staff Wednesday, 20 December 2017 03:24

VNG Norge has made a contract award to TechnipFMC for integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (iEPCI) on the Fenja field in the Norwegian Sea offshore Norway.

The contract covers the provision of subsea equipment including umbilicals, risers, flowlines and the subsea production system for the Fenja Project (previously known as Pil & Bue). Fenja will be tied back to the Njord platform with help from what will be the longest electrically trace Heated (ETH) pipeline in the world at 37km-long, says TechnipFMC 

Hallvard Hasselknippe, President of TechnipFMC’s Subsea Projects, commented: “This is TechnipFMC’s sixth iEPCI award and the largest one to date. It is also our first major integrated project award [worth more than US$250 million]."

Yesterday, VNG submitted the plan for development and operation for Fenja. The field will be developed via two subsea templates with three producer wells, two water injectior wells, and one gas injector well, connected to the Njord A platform for processing, storage and export via the Njord B ship. Production is scheduled to begin in 2021 and last 16 years.

Located at Haltenterassen in Block 6406/12, Fenja contains about 100 MMboe recoverable resource, including 11 MMscm of oil, 3.4 Bscm of gas, and 0.57 MM tonnes of natural gas liquids. These figures include the Pil reservoir; the Bue reservoir represents a possible upside in the Fenja development plan, VNG Norge said in 19 December statement.

Fenja will mark VNG Norge’s first development operatorship. Partners in the Fenja field in PL586 include VNG Norge (30%), Point Resources (45%), and Faroe Petroleum Norge (25%).
