Leading rig design and engineering specialist RDS says it has been awarded a contract by Wood Group Mustang to carry out pre-FEED work on Statoil’s proposed Snorre C Tension Leg Platform (TLP) in the North Sea.

RDS explain that the Snorre field, spanning blocks 34/4 and 34/7 in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea, is located at a water depth between 300-350 metres and is operated by Statoil on behalf of the Snorre partners.

The pre-FEED work will be undertaken by the RDS team in London who will carry out the full design of the drilling facilities on the TLP.

With preparations underway, a team of 15 - 20 engineering and management personnel at RDS will work on the Snorre C drilling facility design for the next five months.

Simon Drew, Senior Vice President of RDS said: “We are extremely proud to be selected by Wood Group Mustang in the early stages of this key development.
