Sr. Construction Planner IV - Facilities & Drillsite
Location: Houston, Texas
Willow is an oil discovery located within the Bear Tooth Unit (BTU) in the National Petroleum Reserve of Alaska (NPR-A) approximately 30 miles west-southwest of the Alpine Central Facility (ACF) on the North Slope of Alaska.
The Willow Development is expected to contain greater than 600 MMBOE gross recoverable resource. The initial phase of Willow development will include a new Willow Central Processing Facility (WCF), three drill sites, pipelines, roads, bridges, and supporting infrastructure. The second phase of development will include at least one additional drillsite.
The Willow Central Facility (WCF) will treat and separate production fluids from the BT1, BT2, BT3, and BT6 Drillsites into sales quality oil product, water for reinjection, and gas for field reinjection and use as fuel gas. WCF is currently designed for 170 MBOPD/245 MMSCFD/190 MBWPD of combined three-phase fluids with an upside potential of 180 MBOPD/250 MMSCFD/190 MBWPD and consists of: Oil, gas, water, and condensate handling, flare, divert tankage and support facilities including Instrument air, chemicals, process heating and cooling, and power generation.
Major process modules and large pipe racks will be transported by sealift to the North Slope via barge originating at the fabrication yard in the Gulf Coast U.S. (or Asia) and will land at Oliktok Dock in the Kuparuk Field. Barges will transport modules and pipe racks over three (3) summer sealift seasons (2024, 2025, 2031). The first sealift, planned in 2024, is estimated at ~7400 tons will consist of 20 pipe racks for WCF and 21 pipe racks for the BT1/2 Drillsites. The second sealift in 2025 includes 7 major modules for WCF, 4 major process modules for the BT1/2/3 drillsites, and 7 pipe racks for BT3 estimated at ~26,000 tons total. A third sealift is planned in 2031 for a future drillsite (BT6) includes process modules and pipe racks.
The remaining components for the Willow Development will be transported to the site from fabrication yards via truck in components weighing under 85 tons. Truckable modules will be trucked over five (5) years beginning in 2022 through 2026. Additional modules will be required for a future drillsite (BT6).
The Facilities and Drillsite Construction Planner is accountable for constructability on the engineering design and deliverables, initial planning for fabrication work, and detailed planning for facility installation work scope associated with the WCF and Drillsite pads. WCF and Drillsites will be built out in phases, this role is critical to ensure each phase is planned and executed in order to meet the overall Willow Project schedule.
The Facilities and Drillsite Construction Planner is expected to evaluate all project requirements and develop a comprehensive plan for each phase of construction. The Facilities and Drillsite Construction Planner will interface with other members of the Willow Project Team, as well as Engineering, Construction, and Logistics contractor(s) to ensure the plans are consistent with Willow Project objectives.
