GE has announced that its control valve technology has been selected by Technip for an offshore production platform in the Hejre oil and gas field, located in the Danish North Sea.
France-based engineering services firm Technip and its partner DSME are constructing the offshore platform for DONG Energy's Hejre field.
Under the contract, GE Oil & Gas will supply control valves from its Masoneilan product line to Technip.
The valves will control flow, pressure, level and temperature on separators, coolers, scrubbers, injection pumps, export pumps and metering for the project.
The new 15,000t platform features a wellhead, processing facilities and other equipment, and supports the production of five subsea wells. Scheduled for commercial operations in 2015, the facility can produce up to 76 million standard cubic feet of gas and 35,000bpd.
GE Measurement & Control business Europe region leader Tim Povall said: "With an installed base of more than three million valves, our expertise in valve technology is well established and was a key factor in winning this significant contract. Our heritage in valve technology dates back more than a century and, over that time, our customers have learned that they can count on our products and services to protect their process assets."
DONG Energy and Bayerngas own 60% and 40% shares respectively in the field, which is expected to flow 16 million cubic metres of oil and ten billion cubic metres of gas during its operational lifetime.
The entire Hejre development comprises a production platform and the drilling of production wells and new pipelines that will be tied into existing North Sea pipelines. Oil and gas from the field will be transported to mainland Denmark.
