Wood Group recently completed the seven-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. 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 billion cu ft/day, expandable to 2.1 billion cu ft/day to accommodate future production. The platform will be installed in 86 m water depth.
The Leviathan project adds to Wood Group’s portfolio of projects executed for Noble Energy. 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.”
