Oil and gas project-management service company EPC Offshore said yesterday it had completed work on huge subsea structures for a North Sea project.
EPC, now part of Costain Upstream after it was bought over earlier this month, said that after 12 months of intensive onshore fabrication in Ross-shire it had delivered the equipment for Ithaca Energy’s Greater Stella Area (GSA) development.
EPC added it had overseen the work on riser-base structures, export pipeline tie-in structures and drill centre manifolds, with the latter weighing in at 300 tonnes alone.
The fabrication work at Isleburn’s Evanton yard comes after EPC signed a £1million deal with Ithaca two years ago to support the Stella development.
Keith Wallace, head of the Costain Upstream division, said: “The successful load-out of these structures represents a very visible milestone in the Stella timeline and we are pleased to have managed this element of the field development on time, within budget and to the client’s satisfaction.”
