Technip, in partnership with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), was awarded by Dong E&P and Bayerngas, a contract for the HEJRE project development, offshore Denmark, at a water depth of 70 meters. Dong owns 60% of the Hejre field and Bayerngas 40%.
Estimated to cost $2.18 billion, this contract covers engineering, procurement, fabrication, hook-up, and commissioning assistance for a process platform with associated facilities, a fixed wellhead and new pipelines to be connected to the existing North Sea pipelines.
The platform includes 11,500-ton topsides supported by a 6,500-ton jacket, and is designed to process high pressure and high temperature hydrocarbons fluids. The platform, which also comprises a living quarter to accommodate 70 people and a flare, will be capable of producing up to 76 million standard cubic feet of gas per day and 35,000 barrels of oil per day. Through its pipeline connection, the oil & gas will be carried on to mainland Denmark.
To receive and store the oil arriving through a 90km pipeline, the Dong’s Fredericia terminal will benefit from a $363 million upgrade.
Technip’s operating center in Paris, France, will execute the contract, with the support of the Chennai and Mumbai offices, India.
If the platform topside will be done in South Korea, the jacket should be built in South Europe, by companies like Dragados in Spain or Eiffel in France. The jacket and wellhead unit will be delivered in 2014, the topsides and living quarter in 2015.
The Hejre project should produce 35,000 b/d oil and 76 million cf/d gas
Completion is expected in 2015
