Aberdeen-based oil services conglomerate Wood Group has won the front end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the subsea development of Talisman Energy’s Ca Rong Do field offshore Vietnam, which is estimated to contain around 67 million barrels of oil equivalent.
The company’s Wood Group Kenny subsidiary will carry out comprehensive flow assurance studies and full FEED engineering of the subsea system and structures, risers, flowlines, and power and control umbilicals. The work on the subsea FEED will be carried out from WGK's Kuala Lumpur office and supported by other WGK Asia Pacific offices.
This follows the award of the top tensioned riser contract for design of the dry tree production/injection and drilling riser systems. The company’s depot in Houston, Texas, a centre of excellence for dry tree riser system engineering, will carry out the engineering for the tension leg wellhead platform supported riser systems.
Bob MacDonald, Chief Executive, Wood Group Kenny, said: "Winning both of these contracts underlines our position as the international experts in FEED, particularly in riser and subsea specialties. We are leveraging our global network of engineers to deliver the most effective solutions for the Ca Rong Do development.
"These contracts also continue Wood Group's strong relationship with Talisman Energy which spans continents; from this key greenfield project in Vietnam, to operations and maintenance on UK North Sea assets."
