Frames joins Marginal Field Delivery Consortium

June 11, 2015

Frames joins the Marginal Field Delivery Consortium, an initiative aimed at the development of offshore marginal fields. We will be working closely with ABTOG and Kongsberg Maritime to prepare and deliver process and utility systems, such as process and topsides, which can be operated on a normally unattended basis and enable marginal offshore fields to be economically developed.

“Now, more than ever, there is a strong need for clever, standardized economical production facilities to unlock the resources from marginal and stranded fields. Therefore, we are looking forward to working with ABTOG and partners to create economically feasible offshore marginal field projects and to deliver cost effective solutions,” explains Jacques Melman, CEO Frames.

Tulip Oil marginal field project

Recently, Frames supplied a total plant solution in the Tulip Oil’s Donkerbroek and Hemrik development project, an onshore marginal field project in The Netherlands. By selecting the best treatment equipment in combination with a modularized process design and unattended field operation Frames could lower both the CAPEX and OPEX.

“Our experience in the fast-track Tulip Oil project and our extensive experience in modularized offshore oil and gas processing equipment will lead to lower investment costs and shorter lead times, and will be an enabler for future offshore marginal field project developments,” says Melman.

Experience to deliver field development projects

The Marginal Field Delivery Consortium brings together established industry partners focused on the delivery of marginal field projects. The consortium members all have complementary expertise with the objective of providing the broad range of skills required to deliver field development projects. Frames will contribute with its more than 30 years of experience in designing, engineering, and building process packages for onshore and offshore upstream projects.
