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.
Ramboll assessed a number of formerly prepared concept alternatives of LNG import, reviewed the Klaipeda harbour location and vicinity, and derived a project proposal based on the use of floating storage and regasification of LNG.
Since the Danish gas market was fully liberalised in 2004, Danish consumers have been free to choose between suppliers. One of the companies that has stepped up to ensure a fair and flexible market is Energinet.dk, which, among other activities, oversees the volume balance in Danish gas storages.
Ramboll has assisted DONG Energy with a development project for modification of the Siri field in the North Sea, where we designed two lightweight and robust minimum-facility platforms, Nini and Cecilie.The two unmanned wellhead platforms operate as satellites tied back to the mother platform, Siri, via three inter-field pipelines. The water depth is approximately 60 metres.
Ramboll performed a study to evaluate the technical pre-feasibility of an LNG plant at Stigsnæs Gulfhavn Oil Terminal. The study comprised a feasibility evaluation of the terminal together with cost estimation, and a 3D visualisation of the terminal layouts.
The natural gas pipeline project in the Baltic Sea - the so-called Balticconnector - is now being realised. Ramboll carried out feasibility studies for this large-scale EU funded project and has been appointed technical project management consultant and engineering consultant for the project. The Balticconnector is a 100-150km offshore pipeline linking the gas networks of Finland and Estonia.
The Hejre field development project in the north-western part of the Danish sector of the North Sea will be one of the largest Danish investments in offshore oil and gas production for many years to come. Ramboll has been involved in the project for a number of years.
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 was assigned an early phase study for the “Hoima-Kampala Refined Petroleum Products Pipeline” project in Uganda, East Africa comprising a 210 km (130 miles) pipeline for transport of refined oil products between Hoima refinery / terminal and Kampala distribution terminal.
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 2010 DONG Energy made an interesting oil find in the Danish North Sea, in the Solsort Prospect. An extensive data collection programme was carried out, and subsequently Ramboll assisted on a number of studies to assess the feasibility in developing the asset.
Ramboll will contribute to the development of the Kuvykin field in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea with pre-FEED studies for a drilling complex and topside living quarters designed for operation in arctic conditions.
The national gas markets in Europe are changing rapidly. Continuous liberalisation, dependency on gas imports from outside the EU, and increasing consumer demand have stepped up the need for strategic as well as commercial storage facilities. Ramboll has been deeply involved in these developments since the 1990s and in 2008 we assisted Etzel-Kavernenbetriebsgesellschaft mbH & CO. KG with the development of the Etzel salt cavern storage facility near Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
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.
FPSO Teekay Petrojarl I was operating on the Glitne Field for Statoil, and was planned to operate for another five years there. In turn, the owner of the FPSO, Teekay Petrojarl Production, was evaluating to extend the lifetime of the FPSO with 15 years.
Georgia has experienced a pressing desire to build an Underground Gas Storage (UGS) for the sake of security of natural gas supply within the country of Georgia. An underground gas storage offers the ability to accommodate seasonal and short-term fluctuations in the demand for natural gas.
As consultant to operator Maersk Oil, Ramboll has worked on a number of projects at the North Sea oil field, Dan F.
