Neptune Energy today let a subsea inspection contract to Fugro for work on Cygnus gas field in the UK southern North Sea.
Fugro will employ survey technology to inspect the subsea infrastructure, including pipelines and structures, and to undertake survey activities in advance of future drilling campaigns on the field.
Data processing will be carried out from Fugro’s remote operations center in Aberdeen.
Cygnus field produces more than 250 MMcfd of natural gas. Two drilling centers target 10 wells. Cygnus Alpha consists of three bridge-linked platforms: a wellhead drilling center, a processing-utilities unit, and a living quarters-central control room. Cygnus Bravo, an unmanned satellite platform, lies 7 km northwest of Cygnus Alpha.
Gas is exported via a 55 km pipeline. Cygnus connects via the Esmond Transmission System (ETS) pipeline to the gas-treatment terminal at Bacton, Norfolk.
Neptune is operator of Cygnus field with 38.75% interest. Spirit Energy holds 61.25%.
