Wintershall awards Brage services contract to Beerenberg
- Business & Finance
Norway’s Beerenberg, a provider of service solutions to the oil and gas sector, has been awarded a contract by Wintershall for services on the Brage platform offshore Norway.
Beerenberg informed on Wednesday it signed a frame agreement with the German oil company for delivery of insulation, surface treatment and scaffolding (ISS) services on the Brage installation.
The four-year frame agreement includes three options of two years’ extension. It is expected to have a value of NOK 20-40 million per year.
The company added that the contract will start in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The Brage field is Wintershall Norge’s first operated production field. It is located on Blocks 30/6, 31/4, and 31/7, east of Oseberg in the northern part of the North Sea, 125 kilometers west of Bergen. The water depth is 137 meters. The first oil on Brage was produced as early as 1993 and the field was then operated by Hydro. Statoil was operator from 2009 until Wintershall took over in October 2013.
Brage is a fully integrated platform with living quarter, auxiliary equipment module, process modules, drilling modules, well and manifold areas. The cabin capacity is 130 people.
Brage has been developed with a fixed integrated production, drilling and accommodation platform with a steel jacket. The main drainage strategy is water injection for the Statfjord, Fensfjord and Brent formations. Produced water is injected in Statfjord and Utsira water in Fensfjord and Brent. Gas lift is utilized in most wells, independent of formation. Brage has no storage capacity and the oil is therefore exported via the Oseberg Transport System (OTS) to the Sture terminal. The gas is exported via a pipeline to Kårstø.
