Proserv subsea controls for IOG North Sea development

Proserv has secured a contract from Independent Oil and Gas to provide subsea controls system for IOG’s Core Project Phase 1 development in the UK Southern North Sea.

Specifically, Proserv will be responsible for the engineering, construction and installation for the Elgood single-well subsea tieback.

The system will consist of a master control station, subsea control module as well as subsea distribution and instrumentation.

Elgood gas field

The Elgood gas field is part of the Blythe Hub, situated 35 kilometres offshore Norfolk in the Southern North Sea.

The field should come on stream in 2021.

Elgood is a single subsea tieback to an unmanned platform at the nearby Blythe field.

IOG is the field operator with 50 per cent, with the remaining 50 per cent interest also belonging to CalEnergy.

Iain Smith, senior vice president – Proserv Controls, said:

“We are pleased to be awarded this work in such uncertain times and it further strengthens our reputation as a subsea controls supplier.

“We look forward to working with IOG and their SURF contractor to ensure the cost-effective, safe and timely execution.”
