    More details

    The Culzean project is a gas condensate development located East of Aberdeen in the UK sector of the Central North Sea.  This development is installed at a water depth of 90 meters involving a three platform bridge linked concept including a Wellhead platform (WHP), Central Processing Platform (CPF) and a Separate Living Quarters and Utility Platform (ULQ).

    It is the largest gas field sanctioned by the UK since East Brae in 1990 and the project has the potential to meet around 5% of UK gas demand in 2020/21. 

    The PGM module comprises of 3 x 7500kw Dual Fuel Turbines and associated systems, a pedestal crane and various workshops and stores.  The WHP to CPF Bridge carries process and utility fluids via 18 pipes, whilst the CPF to ULQ Bridge carries process and utility fluids via10 pipes. The bridges also provide support for the routing of power and communications cables and walkways providing safe access between platforms.
