Ramboll wins landmark project in Russia
OFFSHORE: Ramboll Oil & Gas has landed its first contract for Gazprom's top development priority, the Kirinskoye gas and condensate field.The field is a part of the Kirinsky block in the major Sakhalin 3 area located 28 kilometres offshore the island of Sakhalin in the Sea of Okhotsk.
"Though it is a relatively small job for us, it is definitely a landmark; an important strategic step in positioning Ramboll in Russian Oil & Gas. It will not only provide us with our first Russian, arctic offshore experience but will offer further opportunities for multidisciplinary contracts in this challenging market", says Tatjana Sadyrina, Director of Business Development, Russia.
The area is part of the Arctic region, with up to seven months of ice cover per year. The field holds over 100 billion cubic metres of gas and 11.4 million tonnes of gas condensate. Gas will be produced from the field by Russia's first subsea production complex supplied by FMC Technologies.
MRTS is the major Russian subsea service company holding the main contract from Gazprom for installation and service for the Kirinskoye field. Ramboll has been engaged by MRTS to perform critical installation analysis and assist in development of the installation procedures for the challenging Okhotsk Sea conditions.
Ramboll has for the past 25 years operated in the Arctic region based on our recognition of its sensitivity to human interference. Our experience on the ground enables us to safeguard the region's special environmental conditions and the rights and cultures of its indigenous peoples.
When working in the area, we apply the strictest requirements and work procedures. Our project managers selected to work in the region are therefore chosen due to their experience, resilience and integrity, and possess a strong sensitivity and responsibility toward the issues in the region.
