KCI has recently been awarded a contract by operator Perenco UK for the detailed design of the Greenfield scope of the SHARP project.
The Southern Hub Asset Rationalisation Project (SHARP) project will combine an existing platform producing from Leman and Inde fields in the Southern North Sea (UK) into one production hub.
To allow for this, a jack-up rig will be converted into a compression platform 27BC and will be connected via a bridge to the existing Leman 27BT platform.
From here production will be sent to the Bacton gas terminal (Norfolk UK) via the existing pipeline.
KCI is responsible for detailed engineering of the 27BC jack-up rig including the bridge connecting 27BC and 27BT with engineering support for all packages: structural, mechanical and safety installations and the design of interconnections between all modules and equipment.
The engineering scope is expected to be completed in June 2020, while first gas from BC is planned February 2021.
