KG with the development of the Etzel salt cavern storage facility near Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
Ramboll Oil & Gas has provided a number of services for the Nybro gas treatment plant in Denmark, where natural gas from the South Arne and Tyra fields is purified and dried, and sulphur is removed, when necessary. In 2005 Ramboll conducted a major risk analysis assessment for the Nybro gas treatment plant.
Securing natural gas supply to EU member states is a matter of significant importance for the EU. The increasing import dependency of natural gas in the EU coupled with increased demand for flexibility in gas markets has made natural gas storage a central issue in the EU’s energy debate regarding market development and security of supply.

Ramboll was given the task of remodelling and enlarging an existing old flare system at the Dukhan oil field on the west coast of Qatar. In addition, we were to find a method for reclaiming some of the gas that would otherwise be burnt in the tower. At last, we were to implement improved combustion technology to obtain what is known as a “smokeless flare”- which means a flame without smoke.
In 2006 Ramboll Oil & Gas commenced our biggest project to date when we initiated the pre-engineering work on the Nexus project for APL NEXUS and Samsung. Nexus is a generic FPSO with a free and fully weather-vaning turret mooring that can accommodate up to 6 risers.
In the summer of 2014 a joint venture between Ramboll Oil & Gas and Semco Maritime were rewarded an EPC contract for the provision of onshore and offshore services to Hess Denmark’s platforms in the Danish North Sea.
Kirinskoye is the first offshore field in Russia to utilise a subsea system for natural gas production. The field holds over 100 billion cubic metres of gas and 11.4 million tonnes of gas condensate. The Kirinskoye gas and condensate field is part of the 'Kirinsky block' in the Sea of Okhotsk and is one of the main development priorities for Gazprom, the world's largest gas producer.The field is part of a Russian Federation strategy for development of an integrated gas production, transportation and supply system to the regions of Eastern Siberia and the Far East.
CESI and Ramboll teamed up to determine the best options for electrical and gas interconnections in connection with the creation of a single energy market for 20 Arab countries by 2030.
The Tyra Field is the largest gas field in the Danish North Sea sector – it is operated by Maersk Oil, and has been producing since 1984. Ramboll has been part of the Tyra East Rationalisation Project; just one phase in a series of Optimisation Projects in the field.
The Polarled pipeline project is part of the plans for developing fields further north in the Norwegian Sea.
European gas consumption is increasing, and in order to meet these demands and ensure a long-term reliable supply line of energy, it was decided to establish a 1,224 kilometre dual pipeline system running from Vyborg, Russia to Lubmin near Greifswald, Germany. The project is called the Nord Stream Pipeline.
Ramboll provided engineering services for a fast track offshore project in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Snorre field in the Norwegian North Sea is to be developed further through the addition of a wellhead platform, and Ramboll was appointed to provide conceptual recommendations for the facility.
The FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) Piranema is the world's first cylinder shaped FPSO in production. It was constructed by Sevan Marine with Kanfa and Ramboll as engineering partners.
Ramboll assisted Belgium’s transmission system operator, Elia, with the detailed design of an Offshore Switch Yard platform (OSY). The work was part of a large project that plans to improve wind energy transmission.
Ramboll assisted Maersk Drilling with supervision and facilitating the development of safety documentation for a newly built deepwater drillship. It is Maersk Drilling's first drillship in a future ultra deepwater fleet, which will operate at extreme depths and offer outstanding solutions both regarding safety and efficiency.
The Morvin field is located 20 kilometres west of the Åsgard B platform at Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea.
