Head Energy said in a statement on Tuesday that the engineering phase would start immediately.

Head Energy’s engineering director Øyvind Reksten said: “This is a strategically important contract for us and a recognition of our skilled engineering team working with EPCIC offshore modification projects.

“We look forward to continuing our good cooperation with Wintershall Dea and contribute to increased production at the Brage Platform.”

Brage is Wintershall Dea’s first manned platform in Norway. Located in the northern North Sea, 125 kilometers west of Bergen, it is one of the oldest producing platforms in Norway. First discovered in 1980, the field came into production in 1993 and has been in operation for more than 25 years.

The German company took over operatorship of Brage in 2013 as part of an asset swap with Equinor, then Statoil.

Brage is a fully integrated platform with living quarters, auxiliary equipment module, process modules, drilling modules, well and manifold areas. The cabin capacity is 130 people.

Brage has been developed as a fixed integrated production, drilling, and accommodation facility with a steel jacket. The main drainage strategy is water injection, with gas lift utilized in most wells. Oil is exported via the Oseberg transport system to the Sture terminal and the gas is exported via a pipeline to Kårstø.
