Wood Group begins detailed engineering of Leviathan for Noble Energy - WORLD OIL


HOUSTON, Texas -- Wood Group recently completed the seven-month front-end engineering design (FEED) for Noble Energy’s Leviathan Field Development Project in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and has started the detailed engineering for the platform, including the topsides and jacket. The FEED and detail design has a total contract value of approximately $95 million.

The estimated 30,000-ton fixed platform is being initially designed to process 1.2 Bcfd of gas, expandable to 2.1 Bcfd to accommodate future production. The platform will be installed in an 86-m water depth.

The Leviathan project adds to Wood Group’s portfolio of projects executed for Noble Energy. Wood Group previously designed the Tamar platform topsides; the Tamar onshore compression plant which receives natural gas from the Mari-B and Tamar fields in the Mediterranean Sea; and the topsides and jacket for the Alen production platform, offshore Equatorial Guinea.
