Unmanned minimum-facility platforms are a cost-effective alternative to subsea production systems. Statoil contracted Ramboll to carry out a study on an unmanned wellhead platform (UWP) for their Oseberg field.
Statoil awarded Ramboll a feasibility study for their Johan Sverdrup field development project with the purpose of developing feasible concepts for minimum-facility platforms.
The current jacket platform in the Tor field in the Norwegian North Sea is expiring, but there are reserves still to be produced. The operator had developed a platform concept base case, and Total awarded Ramboll a platform concept study for the Tor field. The main purpose of the study was to evaluate an alternative concept based on a lower reservoir potential.
The unmanned wellhead platform is a development concept under consideration for several licenses on the Norwegian continental shelf. Ramboll carried out a study for The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate pointing out pros and cons of the concept.
Ramboll oil and gas experts studied the possible effects on the environment and existing structures as a result of introducing artificial islands to be used as the centre for future drilling and oil production in the Upper Zakum oil field off the coast of Abu Dhabi.
The lifetime extension of the oldest oil field in the Danish North Sea marked one of the most challenging and complex offshore campaigns initiated by Maersk Oil. The goal of the project as a whole was to extend the lifetime of Dan Bravo until 2042.
ConocoPhillips awarded Ramboll a conceptual design study update for an unmanned stand-alone minimum-facility wellhead platform in the Greater Ekofisk Area.
Ramboll performed a study to evaluate the technical pre-feasibility of an LNG plant at Stigsnæs Gulfhavn Oil Terminal. The study comprised a feasibility evaluation of the terminal together with cost estimation, and a 3D visualisation of the terminal layouts.
The StatoilHydro Refinery in Kalundborg is flaring directly to the atmosphere from a certain amount of PSV’s. The purpose with the project is to collect all discharge facilities to a new common flare system, Flare-3.
Ramboll was awarded a feasibility study in joint venture with Gazoprojekt, and Ernst & Young as sub-consultants, to provide socioeconomic, financial and technical foundation for the prospective Baltic Pipe implementation.
For several years, Ramboll had assisted Gasum Oy with their plan of constructing a terminal for LNG import to the South coast of Finland. Following the feasibility study Ramboll was awarded a contract for project management services that focused on the critical tasks of the project.
Ramboll was assigned an early phase study for the “Hoima-Kampala Refined Petroleum Products Pipeline” project in Uganda, East Africa comprising a 210 km (130 miles) pipeline for transport of refined oil products between Hoima refinery / terminal and Kampala distribution terminal.
The Hejre field development project in the north-western part of the Danish sector of the North Sea will be one of the largest Danish investments in offshore oil and gas production for many years to come. Ramboll has been involved in the project for a number of years.
The Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farm project is a significant step towards Taiwan’s transition to renewable energy. Ramboll designed the two large 600MW offshore substations for the wind farm.
The national gas markets in Europe are changing rapidly. Continuous liberalisation, dependency on gas imports from outside the EU, and increasing consumer demand have stepped up the need for strategic as well as commercial storage facilities. Ramboll has been deeply involved in these developments since the 1990s and in 2008 we assisted Etzel-Kavernenbetriebsgesellschaft mbH & CO. KG with the development of the Etzel salt cavern storage facility near Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
In 2010 DONG Energy made an interesting oil find in the Danish North Sea, in the Solsort Prospect. An extensive data collection programme was carried out, and subsequently Ramboll assisted on a number of studies to assess the feasibility in developing the asset.
Ramboll will contribute to the development of the Kuvykin field in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea with pre-FEED studies for a drilling complex and topside living quarters designed for operation in arctic conditions.
DONG Energy Wind Power is developing the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm in the UK. Ramboll carried out the design of a reactive compensation substation for the wind farm, as well as technical assistance during tendering, fabrication and installation.
Since 1995 Statoil has executed large scale extension and modification environmental-friendly projects on their refinery in Kalundborg, Denmark.
As consultant to operator Maersk Oil, Ramboll has worked on a number of projects at the North Sea oil field, Dan F.
Georgia has experienced a pressing desire to build an Underground Gas Storage (UGS) for the sake of security of natural gas supply within the country of Georgia. An underground gas storage offers the ability to accommodate seasonal and short-term fluctuations in the demand for natural gas.
Ramboll has acted as steady engineering consultant to Maersk Oil on their Danish offshore oil field, Halfdan, since 1999. Ramboll’s involvement started with early field development work and has continued through the years with ongoing brownfield work.
Ramboll assisted EWZ with technical concept and execution planning of a district heating and cooling system in the city of Zurich, Switzerland, with a total heating capacity of approx. 150 GWh/a.
The Tyra field is the largest gas field in the Danish North Sea sector. It is operated by Total and has been producing since 1984.
