Work starts on MEG pump package for the Nova tie-back to Gjøa Project
25th Jul 2018
Rosenberg WorleyParson AS has awarded PG Flow Solutions subsidiary Calder Ltd a contract to supply a MEG pump package to the Nova tie-back to Gjøa Project. The Norwegian EPCI contractor is responsible for the upgrade on the Gjøa platform in the North Sea.
Wintershall as the operator of Nova has decided to develop the field with two subsea modules tied back to the Gjøa platform, which is operated by Neptune Energy. Rosenberg WorleyParsons is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the Nova topside module on the Gjøa platform.
Operating as a subcontractor to Rosenberg WorleyParsons, liquid handling and pump specialist Calder will deliver a MEG (mono ethylene glycol) package that consists of several high pressure pumps including MEG subsea injection pump, MEG jockey pump, MEG topside injection pump and MEG booster return pump plus spare parts for installation, commissioning and start-up.
The MEG package will be engineered, assembled and skid mounted at Calder’s facility in Worcester, UK, and subsequently delivered to Rosenberg WorleyParson’s yard in Stavanger, Norway, in the first quarter of 2019. The successful bid was a joint team effort between PG Flow Solutions operations in Sande, Norway, and Worcester, UK.
“It is great to see that the Norwegian offshore contractors have significantly increased their competitiveness in recent years, and the Nova topside module is a good example of this. Winning the contract for the Nova MEG injection packages is a confirmation that our joint teams in UK and Norway are matching the Norwegian offshore contractors’ productivity improvements while maintaining our market leading quality standards,” says Peter Elton, managing director of Calder.
Nova was discovered in 2012 and is situated in the north eastern North Sea approximately 20 kilometres southwest of the Neptune-operated Gjøa platform and about 120 kilometres northwest of Bergen.
