Global welcomes first production vessel to Nigg

Oil and gas service firm Global Energy Group has welcomed the first floating production vessel to Nigg yard.

The Inverness and Aberdeen-based company will help modify the Haewene Brim vessel, which is currently in the dry dock at Nigg Energy Park.

Global is working alongside ship owner Bluewater and engineering firm Amec to deliver the topsides modifications on the Haewene Brim, which is more than 820ft long. The project includes accommodating a subsea tieback on the vessel, which will be used at Lundin Petroleum’s Brynhild field in Norwegian waters once the work is complete.

Global has invested heavily in Nigg, and in May said it would spend £37million to redevelop the rundown south quay at the site, reclaiming six acres of the Cromarty Firth and building 3,200ft of deep-water quayside.

The major development plans are on top of the £14million already invested in refurbishing the 238-acre site since Global Energy chairman Roy MacGregor bought it in 2011, in a deal believed to be worth more than £10million.

The firm has plans for 2,000 people to be working at Nigg Energy Park by 2015.
