The Dana-operated Western Isles Project will develop two discovered oil fields called Harris and Barra in the Northern North Sea, 160km east of the Shetlands and 12km west of Tern field. It involves a subsea development of at least five production, and four water injection wells, tied back to a new-build Floating Production, Storage and Offloading Vessel (FPSO) with oil export using shuttle tankers. Peak production rates are expected to be c. 40,000 boepd.
The FPSO uses Sevan Marine design technology, constructed in China by China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO), while the Subsea infrastructure is being completed by Subsea 7.
China’s Cosco Shipyard on Saturday started to ship the FPSO vessel to the North Sea.
