Field development project

Fabricom Offshore Services (FOS) has secured a contract with Talisman Energy for topside modifications to tie-in the Auk North riser flowline and control systems to the Fulmar ‘A’ Platform.

FOS completed a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study, including a cost estimate and project implementation schedule, for the Auk North over Fulmar field development project in November 2008.

The FEED study formed the basis of the present contract, which is to complete the topside’s detailed engineering and provide procurement services.

Procurement packages will be generated to allow the purchase of all equipment, bulk materials, fabrication of pipework and construction of variable speed drives and controls modules.

Allan Cairns, engineering director at FOS, said: ‘This is a significant award for our business and is a testament to the skills of our engineers, who have gained the trust and confidence of a major oil company such as Talisman Energy to place this important project with us.’
