Company selected to provide control valves for offshore oil platform

GE Oil & Gas will supply control valves for an offshore production platform in the Hejre oil and gas field in the Danish sector of the North Sea.

08/02/2013


GE control valve technology has been selected for an offshore production platform that is a key component in the development of the Hejre oil and gas field in the Danish sector of the North Sea. The development project is expected to increase the reliability of Denmark’s oil and gas supply and is a significant step toward the country achieving energy independence.

GE Oil & Gas will supply control valves from its Masoneilan product line to Technip, the engineering, procurement and construction company that is building the Hejre offshore platform in partnership with DSME. DONG E&P, a subsidiary of DONG Energy, the Danish-based energy company, is the operator of the field, which is expected to produce 16 million cubic meters of oil and 10 billion cubic meters of gas during its operational lifetime.

The Hejre offshore platform features a wellhead, processing facilities and other equipment and supports the production of five subsea wells. It will be capable of producing up to 76 million standard cubic feet of gas and 35,000 barrels of oil per day when it enters commercial operation in 2015.

The GE valves will be used to control flow, pressure, level or temperature on separators, coolers and scrubbers, injection pumps, export pumps and metering for the Hejre project.

GE Oil & Gas’ North Sea knowledge and experience helped secure the Hejre deal. GE Oil & Gas is a major supplier of technology and services for the North Sea oil and gas sector and has previously provided subsea systems and other types of equipment for several projects in the region, including compressors and expanders for the Hejre project. GE Oil & Gas also has provided technology for developments in the Buzzard, Ettrick and Cheviot fields in the North Sea. Further supporting its efforts in the region, GE operates a testing and assembly plant and a subsea monitoring and remote technology center at Nailsea in the United Kingdom.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
