Maersk Oil UK has awarded Ramboll Oil & Gas the detailed design for the Culzean wellhead jacket. The project, which was won in tight international competition, marks Ramboll’s first major involvement in the Culzean field, and it also marks the largest substructure design by Ramboll for the North Sea.
Culzean expected to cover 5% of the UK natural gas requirements
The appraisal well in the Maersk Oil operated HPHT Culzean field is located in the UK sector of the Central North Sea, nearly 242 kilometres (145 miles) East of Aberdeen.
If successfully developed, the Culzean discovery has the potential to meet around 5% of the UK’s gas demand in 2020/21.
