Norway’s PG Flow Solutions has secured a contract from Aker BP, on behalf of the Wellhead Platform Alliance, to supply a number of pump systems for the normally unmanned wellhead platform to be used at the planned Hod field development in the North Sea.
Under the contract, PG Flow Solutions will deliver miscellaneous pumps to the platform topside, including a pressure equalising pump, freshwater pump, freshwater pressure pump, diesel transfer pump, and one hazardous open drain pump.
PG Flow Solutions will manage the project out of its facility in Sande, Vestfold, Norway.
The planned wellhead platform to be named “Hod B” is the second project in the Wellhead Platform Alliance, which was established in 2017 by Aker BP, Kvaerner, ABB and Aker Solutions. The alliance’s first project was the successful Valhall Flank West field development, including its normally unmanned wellhead platform which came on stream in in the fourth quarter of 2019.
This latest contract is almost identical to the pump system delivery that PG Flow Solutions made to Aker BP and the Wellhead Platform Alliance for the Valhall Flank West wellhead platform in 2018.
“Re-using already proven solutions and development plans reduce costs and risks for both suppliers and the operator. We are therefore very comfortable with the scope of work and delivery schedule indicated for the Hod platform too,” said Mark Tuinman, sales manager – energy, at PG Flow Solutions.
