TechnipFMC Picks Frames Package for Eni Merakes Field
Oil and gas process equipment supplier Frames has been awarded a contract to supply TechnipFMC with the hydraulic control systems for subsea wells and subsea isolation valves in the Eni Merakes field tie-back to the existing Jangkrik Floating Production Unit in offshore East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The field’s subsea wells, and the construction and installation of subsea systems and pipelines, will be connected to the Jangkrik FPU. The gas will then be shipped through the existing pipelines from the Jangkrik FPU to the Bontang LNG Processing facility.
Frames is supplying a Production HPU (PHPU), a Topside Umbilicial Termination Unit (TUTU) and a Subsea Isolation Valve control panel (SSIV Panel). Together these systems will enable control and operation of the subsea wells and subsea isolation valves for the Merakes field.
“This is a fast track project where close collaboration is essential,” says Thomas de Wolf, Product Specialist Wellsites, HIPS and Hydraulics, Frames. “We have worked with Technip-FMC on many similar projects and so they know our extensive experience and capability with these systems.”
