Maersk Oil's Culzean gas megaproject topsides
Fabrication of the billion dollar topsides destined for the Maersk Oil operated USD 4.5 billion UK North Sea megaproject, Culzean has begun. The steel-cutting ceremony for the first of the three topsides modules took place at the Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms (SMOP – formerly known as SMOE) Admiralty Yard in Singapore.
Culzean is the largest hydrocarbon discovery in the UK North Sea for over a decade. The field is approximately 145 miles east of Aberdeen and is expected to produce between 60,000 – 90,000 boepd at plateau production, producing for at least 13 years.
The project was sanctioned in August 2015. Maersk Oil’s coventurers in Culzean are JX Nippon Exploration & Production (UK) Limited (34.01%) and BP (Britoil) (16%).
