Ramboll to execute Front End Engineering Design of three new wellhead platforms in the Al Shaheen oil field, with DORIS Engineering as subcontractor
Ramboll and subcontractor DORIS Engineering have been appointed by North Oil Company (NOC), to execute FEED of three new wellhead platforms in the Al Shaheen offshore oil field in Qatar.
Doha, Qatar – February 6th, 2018
The new wellhead platforms will also be linked to existing platforms in the Al Shaheen field. The project therefore involves modifying the existing facilities, which will develop opportunities and add even greater value to the field.
The work will be performed in close cooperation from Ramboll’s regional office in Doha and DORIS’ office in Paris.
Ramboll has previously worked on the platforms with performing the pre-FEED and holds experience with former studies for Al Shaheen.
“We are looking forward to collaborating with NOC in further development of Al Shaheen. With this challenging and fast-track project, Ramboll can deliver design value in a difficult context and create sustainable solutions for the new platforms”, says Lars Mogensen, Ramboll’s Business Development Director for the Middle East.
Nicolas Parsloe, Chairman and CEO of DORIS said: “DORIS is very proud of participating in this Al Shaheen FEED and pleased to support NOC and Ramboll on this project. It confirms our client’s confidence in our ability to deliver smart engineering and higher design value in a difficult and competitive context. This demonstrates the attractiveness of DORIS solutions for oil and gas companies, even in conventional fields in the Middle East.
The Al Shaheen field is the largest oilfield in Qatar and produces 300.000 barrels of oil per day. Since July 2017, the field, previously maintained by Maersk Oil, has been operated by NOC, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum (70%) and Total (30%).
