GUILDFORD, UK – Zennor Petroleum’s Finlaggan field development within the UK central North Sea ought to come onstream late subsequent yr.
This yr’s program for the subsea tieback to the Britannia gas-condensate platform concerned three separate vessel mobilizations over the summer time.
Finlaggan’s 145-metric ton (160-ton) manifold was put in adjoining to the F1 and F2 manufacturing wells (F1 and F2). The construction, which is able to allow metering of the wellstream, can also be designed with tie-in factors for additional wells and to different fields.
Different highlights of the marketing campaign included set up on the seafloor of the 15 pipeline spools for each ends of the pipeline; and de-watering of the 20-km (12.4-mi) pipe-in-pipe flowline from Finlaggan to the subsea isolation valve skid throughout the Britannia 500-m (1,640-ft) zone.
By finish of the yr the mission must be over 90% full, with start-up following subsequent summer time’s rescheduled shutdown of the Forties Pipeline System within the North Sea.
Zennor added that its lenders have agreed to upsize the prevailing senior secured time period mortgage facility for the mission to £185 million ($241 million), extending it by one yr due to delays to the Finlaggan improvement schedule attributable to COVID-19 restrictions.
