Wood Group completed the 7 month front end engineering design (FEED) for Noble Energy’s Leviathan Field Development Project in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and has started the detailed engineering for the platform – including the topsides and jacket, reported the company on March 2, 2017.
The FEED and detail design has a total contract value of approximately $95 million.
The estimated 30,000 ton fixed platform is being initially designed to process 1.2 Bcf/d of gas, expandable to 2.1Bcf/d to accommodate future production.
The platform will be installed in 86 meters water depth.
Wood Group previously designed the Tamar platform topsides; the Tamar onshore compression plant which receives natural gas from the Mari-B and Tamar fields in the Mediterranean Sea; and the topsides and jacket for the Alen production platform, offshore Equatorial Guinea.
Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: «Wood Group’s global engineering experience in delivering large-scale offshore gas production facilities and proven ability to deliver safe, cost-effective and efficient solutions will help Noble Energy and its partners meet the high standards, cost requirements and delivery schedule of the Leviathan field development. We are proud to be a valued partner in this major project.»
