Trent and Tyne Integrated Gas Field Developments - North Sea

Early Intelligent Field Effort

These projects were notable for being fast tracked and not normally manned designs. From the last delineation well to first gas was less than two and a half years, which included gas contract negotiations, project justification, contracting, design, construction, installation and commissioning. Also, these large facilities extended a trend which ARCO British pioneered of demanning facilities. Despite being complex installations with a full suite of processing kit, including water/gas/condensate separation, hydrate and corrosion inhibition systems, compression, etc., these installations were designed to be remotely operated from a shore base over 100 miles away.

Bill and his team team were responsible for:

  • supporting and evaluating exploration/delineation drilling efforts, including well justifications and approvals, support while drilling and supervising/evaluating well tests
  • preparing the plan of development (POD), including the size and type of platforms, processing required (water separation, dehydration, glycol injection and retrieval, compression, etc.), number of wells and their design, well locations, pipeline options, etc.)
  • assessing health, safety and environmental aspects of the project
  • building and using reservoir simulation models to assist with the POD preparation and to build life of field investment profiles
  • assisting gas contract negotiations
  • developing the capital and operating cost estimates, production profiles, and economics for use in the Authorization of Expenditure (AFE)
  • preparing the Authorization for Expenditure (AFE)
  • coordinating the approval process through ARCO British Ltd and ARCO corporate HQ
  • serving as project coordinators by aligning the efforts of personnel from major projects, operations, geoscience, etc. as the project moved into active development
