Siemens to supply solutions for floating production and drilling facility
"Bluewater and ATP saw great value in being able to obtain a complete systems solution with single point responsibility, supplying a completely integrated solution along with all required package-to-package interface engineering, rather than a collection of engineered products," said Tom Blades, CEO of the Oil and Gas Division. "Siemens' offshore oil and gas solutions are based on years of experience operating offshore globally, and we have an organization that designs, engineers and supports of all these key systems."
The project considers the design requirements for operation in the UK North Sea and in the US Gulf of Mexico. The vessel shall be ABS marine classed. Siemens' scope of supply comprises two SGT-300 gas-turbine-driven gensets, two SGT-200 gas-turbine-driven tandem STC-SV compressors and an E-house (Electrical building). In addition, Siemens will also deliver a power distribution system comprising medium voltage switchgear, low voltage switchgear, variable frequency drives (Perfect Harmony), UPS as well as automation and telecom systems. The Produced water treatment systems from Siemens will use hydro-cyclone and gas floatation technology. Siemens will be responsible for all interface engineering between all supplied equipment and modules / skids.
The Siemens topsides skids and modules will be installed on the floating production and drilling facility at ATP's Cheviot field (blocks 2/10b, 2/15a and 3/1) in the British North Sea. ATP has a 100-percent working interest in the Cheviot field and is the operator.
