Worley has been awarded a contract to provide front end engineering and design (FEED) services to Anasuria Hibiscus UK Ltd (AHUK), an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Hibiscus Petroleum Berhad.
The contract is Worley’s first with AHUK in the North Sea and will see the delivery of a multiple-discipline FEED for the upgrade and repurposing of an existing floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) to support Phase 1 of their Marigold development.
The Marigold development includes two oil bearing discoveries, the Marigold and the Sunflower, which lie in the P198 License covering Blocks 15/13a and 15/13b of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf, approximately 215 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen.
Phase 1 of AHUK’s development consists of three subsea production wells followed by a further drilling stage, Phase 2, in late 2022.
Worley commenced work in January and will continue to support the project throughout 2021. The contract is being led by Worley’s Aberdeen, UK operations with support from its Global Integrated Delivery team in Hyderabad, India.
The multi-discipline FEED will define the modifications recommended to accommodate the process fluids.
Worley’s digital toolkit, which provides more accurate estimates and deeper insights into project data will ensure the project meets both sustainability and UK legislative requirements.
Worley’s extensive suite of digital tools, which digitize pre-FEED deliverables, will reduce risk, expedite schedule and lower costs.
On the announcement of the contract win, Daniel McAteer, Vice President, Energy Aberdeen at Worley, said, “I am delighted that AHUK has given Worley the opportunity to provide FEED services for their North Sea, Marigold development. The opportunity to work with AHUK underlines our brownfield project delivery and technical capabilities within the complex FPSO market.”
McAteer continued, “This FEED will help enable AHUK’s ambitious growth strategy in the UK, while also aligning with our shared sustainability vison for the UK energy industry. The repurposing of an existing FPSO with modern, low-emissions technology will help support the UK’s current energy demands and while progressing toward Scotland’s 2045 net zero targets.”
