TechnipFMC lands North Sea subsea contract with Ithaca

London-based TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract worth between $75m and $250m from Ithaca Energy for the Captain field enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project in the UK North Sea.

The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract will see TechnipFMC design, manufacture, deliver and install subsea equipment including a rigid riser caisson, water injection flexible flowline, umbilicals and associated equipment.

The Captain field lies approximately 145 km northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the Outer Moray Firth area of the UK North Sea, in water depths of around 105 m.

The EOR project is designed to increase hydrocarbon recovery by injecting polymerised water into the reservoir through additional subsea wells, subsea infrastructure and new topsides facilities.

Captain is operated by Ithaca Energy with an 85% holding while Dana Petroleum holds a 15% non-operated working interest in the field.
