INTECSEA performed the concept definition studies and the subsequent FEED phases including the detailed flow assurance work for the project. Activities included feasibility studies to determine the best field architecture, flow assurance, pipelines, subsea hardware and control system. The initial developments included provision for future tie-in of wells and manifolds to the existing manifolds and expansion of the existing control system. Burullus Gas also created a team of subsea specialists consisting of Burullus Gas personnel and INTECSEA engineers to oversee the technical aspects of the EPIC contract from invitation to tender until first gas.
INTECSEA has continually worked alongside Burullus Gas through nine phases of field development and expansion. The initial eight wells in the development have grown to 40 wells today, with the possible expansion of more than 30 plus wells in the future.
INTECSEA has been responsible for the conceptual design, front-end engineering design (FEED) and the technical assurance for all phases of the WDDM development to date.
Burullus maintains continued production at required rates
INTECSEA provide a continued project history, being involved since inception in 2000
First gas dates achieved early on phase IV
Field expansion successfully achieved beyond initial design expectations
Value added by optimizing designs such that production shutdowns were minimized during field expansion operations
