Proserv wins Cygnus topside controls contract
WESTHILL, UK -- Proserv, a global provider of production technology services, has secured a £1.2 million contract to supply topside control equipment at a major southern North Sea development. The company was awarded the deal on the Cygnus field by operator GDF SUEZ through its design contractor AMEC. As part of the agreement, Proserv will supply the design, engineering and build of wellhead control panels and accompanying topside umbilical termination units for the Alpha and Bravo platforms.
Six of the 10 development wells for both platforms will be controlled by the initial panel design and includes the commissioning of spares and specialist tools.
Proserv’s team of controls experts based at the company’s dedicated engineering and manufacturing facility in Great Yarmouth will play a key role in carrying out the work.
The production platform will use an umbilical to provide fiber optic communication and utilities to the Bravo wellhead platform, and Proserv will also supply the topside termination panels for the utilities. The subsea export pipeline has a subsea isolation valve (SSIV) fitted, which is controlled from the production platform, with Proserv providing the topside umbilical termination unit.
Design and engineering work is currently underway, with equipment due for delivery in 2013–2014.
