Proserv set to supply control units for North Sea platforms

Proserv, a provider of production technology services, has secured a £1.2m contract to supply topside control equipment for a southern North Sea development.

The company — which was awarded the deal on the Cygnus field by operator GDF SUEZ through its design contractor AMEC — will design, engineer and build wellhead control panels and accompanying topside umbilical termination units for the Alpha and Bravo platforms.

Six of the 10 development wells for both platforms will be controlled by the initial panel design and include the commissioning of spares and specialist tools.

Design and engineering work is currently under way, with equipment due for delivery in 2013–14.
