SNC-Lavalin Receives FEED Contract for Barge-Launched Jacket

Statoil ASA has awarded SNC-Lavalin the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for completing a 20,000 ton jacket substructure, which is part of the Bressay offshore development situated offshore in the UK portion of the North Sea.

Andy Mackintosh, Executive Vice President, SNC-Lavalin Group, expressed pride in helping Statoil with the monumental Mariner and Bressay undertakings. The current job that comes in the wake of the successful conclusion of the Mariner jacket FEED and further concretized SNC’s status as one of the foremost engineering contractors for barge-launched jackets.

The current jacket structure will be in the water about 92 m deep and will have the capacity to handle operations of about 50 wells, which will cater to a big production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) facility above the ground. The heavy oil from Bressay will be transferred to a floating storage space close by and will be later shipped to the market by shuttle tankers.

Statoil is anticipating the conclusive investment declaration toward 2013 end and the initial oil output in the beginning of 2018. Bressay Licenses are supported by the vested interests of Statoil (operator) of 81.625% and of Shell U.K. of 18.375%.
