Fossil energy – Seagull project
Neptune Energy has completed the safe and successful installation of the manifold and umbilical for the Seagull project in the UK Central North Sea.
TechnipFMC, working under the Neptune Energy Alliance Agreement, undertook the construction activities on the development from the CSV Deep Star vessel.
The activities included the installation of the 350te Seagull manifold, the pull-in and installation of the 17 kilometres control umbilical between the bp-operated ETAP platform and manifold, and the installation of a Wye Structure and associated operations.
Neptune Energy’s UK Managing Director, Alexandra Thomas, said: “The Seagull project is a fundamentally important part of Neptune’s strategic growth plans and will support UK domestic production. The safe and successful completion of this work is a key achievement and prepares the subsea infrastructure for the future tie-in of the Seagull production system.”
Seagull is a high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) development, on UK licence P1622, Block 22/29C, from a new four-slot manifold, 17km south of the ETAP Central Processing Facility (CPF). Proved plus probable gross reserves are estimated at 50 million boe (gross).
