Proserv Wins Cygnus Topside Controls Contract

Press Release
Thursday, November 08, 2012

Proserv, a  global provider of production technology services, has secured a £1.2million contract to supply topside control equipment at a major southern North Sea development.



The company was awarded the deal on the Cygnus field by operator GDF SUEZ through its design contractor AMEC. As part of the agreement Proserv will supply the design, engineering and build of wellhead control panels and accompanying topside umbilical termination units for the Alpha and Bravo platforms.



Six of the 10 development wells for both platforms will be controlled by the initial panel design and includes the commissioning of spares and specialist tools.



Proserv’s team of controls experts based at the company’s dedicated engineering and manufacturing facility in Great Yarmouth will play a key role in carrying out the work.



The production platform will use an umbilical to provide fibre optic communication and utilities to the Bravo wellhead platform and Proserv will also supply the topside termination panels for the utilities. The subsea export pipeline has a subsea isolation valve (SSIV) fitted, which is controlled from the production platform, with Proserv providing the topside umbilical termination unit.



Design and engineering work is currently underway, with equipment due for delivery in 2013/14.



This latest deal follows the announcement in August of two contracts worth a combined £6million. The first project involves the provision of electro-hydraulic multiplex subsea control systems at the Maersk Oil operated Talisman Clyde-platform over 12 months. Topside and subsea manifold control systems support is being provided on a development in the Southern North Sea for the second.



Commenting on the project win, David Lamont, Proserv’s chief executive officer, said:  “The award of this contract is further evidence of the great reputation the team in Great Yarmouth and indeed Proserv has built, and continues to build with our customers globally.



“Our values combined with marketing-leading technologies and great people allows us to deliver world-class products and services from our Great Yarmouth facility on time and within budget consistently. These elements have been crucial in supporting our expansion to date and will stay at our core as our reputation and business continues to grow.”
