Proserv worker

AMEC has chosen Proserv to supply topside control equipment for GDF Suez's Cygnus field development on the southern North Sea, Proserv announced on 8 November 2012.

Under the terms of the $1.9 million contract, Proserv will supply the design, engineering and build of wellhead control panels and accompanying topside umbilical termination units for both the Alpha and Bravo platforms. Proserv said the initial panel design will control six of 10 development wells for the platforms.

The production platform, Proserv said in a press release, will use an umbilical to provide fiber optic communication and utilities to the Bravo wellhead platform and the company will also supply the topside termination panels for the utilities. The subsea export pipeline has a subsea isolation valve (SSIV) fitted, which is controlled from the production platform, with Proserv providing the topside umbilical termination unit.

Design and engineering work is underway at Proserv's Great Yarmouth facility. Equipment is expected to be delivered between 2013 and 2014.

Cygnus gas field is a $2 billion development that will eventually consist of four platforms including Cygnus Alpha - a three platform bridge-linked complex, Cygnus Bravo and an unmanned installation. The development is located 150 km off the northeast coast of England at a water depth of 23 km. First gas is anticipated by 2015.

GDF Suez operates Cygnus with 38.75% interest. Its partners include Centrica (48.75%) and Bayerngas (12.5%).
