Alliance Aces Concept Feasibility Study for StatoilHydro's Valemon Field

Alliance Engineering, a subsidiary of international energy services company John Wood Group PLC, has been awarded a concept feasibility study by StatoilHydro for a new fixed jacket platform and topsides production facilities for its Valemon field. Valemon is located in approximately 135 meters (440 feet) of water in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

This concept work facilitates early drilling with a jack-up cantilevered drilling rig and later life installation of gas compression facilities. Alliance’s focus will be on reducing weight and improving the project economics.

"We are very excited to work for StatoilHydro and add this North Sea project to our repertoire of experience," said Norb Roobaert, president of Alliance.
