UK: Penspen Provides Detailed Design for Greater Stella Area Development
The Offshore business stream of the Penspen Group, Andrew Palmer & Associates, has been contracted to provide Detailed Design services to EPC Offshore Limited (EPC) in support of Ithaca Energy’s Greater Stella Area (GSA) Development. The contract follows on from Penspen’s recent work for EPC Offshore on the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the GSA Development.
Under the terms of agreement, Penspen will provide Detailed Design services for the Phase 1 subsea structures and associated tie-in infrastructure, consisting of the Stella Main Drill Centre manifold, Northern Drill Centre manifold, Export Riser Base, Oil and Gas Export Tee assemblies.
The Stella field is located in the Central North Sea within UKCS Block 30/6a, 280 kilometres east-southeast of Aberdeen in a water depth of approximately 85 metres. Ithaca Energy has contracted EPC Offshore to provide project management of the subsea and pipelines elements of the development last year, and they in turn, contracted Penspen.
Penspen’s Aberdeen General Manager Stuart Bell, said:
“This contract is an important win which reinforces Penspen’s strong record in the subsea sector, as well as underlining our commitment to quality and service, leading to longstanding client relationships.”
