The Linnorm FFED is one of the key offshore contracts Wood Group has secured in the last few months, the company has disclosed today.
“In subsea and pipelines, the strong overall performance continues, driven in particular by the UK and Australia,” Wood Group stated today in a trading update. “Earlier this year we secured an Enterprise Frame Agreement with Shell, under which we are executing a range of work including the Linnorm FEED study in Norway.”
Development of Linnorm – previously known as the Onyx South West prospect when it was first discovered in 2005 – is being considered as a subsea tieback to the Shell-operated Draugen platform, which lies 50 kilometres to the east.
Linnorm is due to share infrastructure with the Luva development. From Draugen, Linnorm and Luva gas is to go into the Nyhamna terminal, already serving the Ormen Lange development.
Onyx was discovered in PL255, which covers blocks 6406/5, 6 and 9.
