Rosenberg WorleyParsons wins Gjøa modification job
- Business & Finance
Oil and gas company Neptune Energy has awarded Rosenberg WorleyParsons contracts for modifications on the Neptune operated Gjøa semi-submersible platform.
Neptune said on Tuesday that the engineering, procurement, construction, installation & commissioning (EPCIC) contracts cover topside modifications to be carried out on the Gjøa platform as part of the Duva and Gjøa P1 projects.
It is worth reminding that Neptune submitted development plans to Norwegian authorities for the Duva (PL636) and Gjøa P1 (PL153) projects in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea back in February 2019.
The contracts are awarded to Rosenberg WorleyParsons under the existing Gjøa topside modification frame agreement signed with Rosenberg WorleyParsons in 2018.
Neptune has awarded the call-offs on behalf of the Duva and Gjøa field licenses.
Duva license partners are Neptune Energy Norge (30% and operator), Idemitsu Petroleum Norge (30%), Pandion Energy (20%) and Wellesley Petroleum (20%). Gjøa field license partners are Neptune Energy Norge (30% and operator), Petoro (30%), Wintershall Norge (20%) OKEA (12%) and DEA Norge (8%).
Neptune Energy Norge’s Managing Director, Odin Estensen, said: “We are pleased to award these contracts to Rosenberg WorleyParsons under the existing frame agreement. This work is important in order to maintain the fast-track schedule for developing Duva and Gjøa P1 as subsea tie-backs to Gjøa. The project demonstrates our commitment to pursuing growth opportunities and further strengthens Gjøa’s position as a hub for the wider area.”
The modification contracts will last until 2021 and the services will be led and executed by Rosenberg WorleyParsons in Stavanger.
The Duva field is located 6 kilometers northeast of the Gjøa field (12 kilometers from the Gjøa platform). The shortest distance to shore is 35 km. The discovery was made in production license 636 in August 2016 by drilling well 36 / 7-4.
The Gjøa field was discovered in 1989, and a PDO was delivered and approved by the Norwegian authorities in 2007. The field is developed with five subsea templates tied to the Gjøa Semi-Submersible for processing and export. Production started in 2010. Oil is exported by pipeline to Mongstad and gas by pipeline to St. Fergus in the UK. The Gjøa P1 segment is located in the northern part of the Gjøa field.
