Curlew - First UK Safety Case FPSO & Subsea Development in UK

Curlew Field Development - A Record-Setting FPSO Execution

The Curlew Field Development is based on a converted FPSO and subsea production system. It is located in Block 29/7 in the central North Sea, 210km from Aberdeen, Scotland. The Curlew FPSO was designed for offshore UK with production capacities of 45,000 bopd, gas export of 110 mmscfd and storage capacity of 560,000 bbl. It was moored on location via an internal turret supplied by SBM. The EPC scope included not only the FPSO but also the subsea system, flow line and gas export line. The scope include offshore installation, HUC and ongoing Operation & Maintenance for life of field.

The team was responsible for Bidding and Execution of the entire Field Development. Numerous initiatives were implemented on Curlew by the execution team that have since become standard FPSO industry practice. The key achievements on Curlew were and are record setting in the industry :

  • Formulated & implemented the MAS Alliance (Maersk, AMEC, SBM) to bid, win, execute and operate the FPSO. This was the first Alliance of its kind for an FPSO Project.
  • Curlew "win strategy" was developed to win against highly experienced competitor groups.
  • First Safety Case project in UK history and approved by the HSE in record time.
  • First leased FPSO field development awarded by Shell Expro.
  • The first FPSO where topsides fabrication, vessel conversion, integration, installation & commissioning were executed entirely in the UK.
  • Curlew was the first FPSO in the UK to modularize and sub-contract the pipe-rack on an EPC basis.
  • The first project completed in 18 months from Project Award to First Production. A record that has not been beaten.
  • Originally installed in 1997 the FPSO continued to operate successfully until it was de-commissioned in 2019.
