Sembcorp Marine subsidiary SMOE has bagged a engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth over $1bn from Maersk Oil North Sea UK.

The contract includes the building of the central processing facility plus two connecting bridges, wellhead platform and utilities and living quarters platform topsides for the Culzean Field Development.

The facility will be installed at a water depth of some 90 metres in UK sector of the Central North Sea.

SMOE will provide EPC and onshore pre-commissioning services while the detailed engineering work will be performed by a subcontracting partner.

The Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in Singapore will be the core fabrication yard for the project, while the Sembmarine SLP yard in Lowestoft, UK will undertake the work scope for a power generation module, two bridges and a flare.

Ho Nee Sin, executive vice president and head of offshore platforms for Sembcorp Marine, said: “We are pleased to secure this mega contract despite stiff competition from world class yards.”
