Aberdeen-based subsea engineering firm Jee Ltd announced Thursday that it has won a contract from Amec Foster Wheeler to design equipment for an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) field development.
The FEED (front-end engineering design) contract is for a jacket rigid polymer-injection riser package. The contract will see the demonstration of the use of polymer chemical injection technology – which Jee describes as a pioneering new technique to maximize the recovery of UK hydrocarbon reserves.
Amec Foster Wheeler will engineer a new bridge-linked platform that will be tied into existing facilities and utilized to store, mix and pump the polymer. Later this year, Jee's engineers will support the first phase of the project by conducting the FEED for the polymer riser injection package as part of the EOR field development program.
Jee Head of Engineering Jonathan McGregor commented in a company statement:
"Being awarded a contract of such high-profile and economic importance is testament to Jee's reputation as a leading engineering firm with extensive capabilities in the field of subsea analysis and design.
"The ever-changing downhole environment represents a challenge when injecting chemical agents into existing reservoir fluids. The work carried out by Jee's highly-experienced engineers on this innovative project will allow for informed decisions to be made, with the aim of successful long-term oil recovery."
Jee added that a new platform development for EOR is a world first, with the project using ground-breaking technologies that include 4D seismic imaging, horizontal drilling and pump technology. Development drilling will take place between 2015 and 2020.
