Wood Group to design Rosebank export facilities

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Chevron North Sea has contracted Wood Group Kenny to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) for the Rosebank field gas export pipeline west of Shetland.

Rosebank is northwest of the Total-operated Laggan-Tormore gas fields, but in a harsher environment and in much deeper water (1,100 m or 3,609 ft).

Wood Group Kenny will take on initial pre-FEED option selection studies, FEED and early procurement support for the 230-km (143-mi) pipeline, and structural designs for a deepwater pipeline end manifold (PLEM).

The pipeline will connect directly to the Shetland Islands Regional Gas Export line serving Laggan-Tormore, with the gas then heading through another new pipeline southeast to St. Fergus, north of Aberdeen.

Chevron operates Rosebank in partnership with Statoil, OMV, and DONG Exploration & Production.
