    Shell UK Limited, on behalf of Goldeneye co-venturers Esso Exploration and Production UK, Lasmo (TNS), Paladin Expro Limited and Petro-Canada UK, has announced the award of two contracts for the installation of pipelines for the Goldeneye Venture.

    European Marine Contractors Limited (EMC), a Saipem group company, has been awarded a 40 million contract for the engineering and construction of the 105km long 20in and 4in diameter offshore pipelines to be installed between the Goldeneye field and theShell/Esso St Fergus Gas Plant.

    The second contract, for the installation through the landfall/onshore section of the two pipelines and worth almost 5million, has been awarded to Van Oord ACZ Limited. Van Oord ACZ will carry out engineering and design work in the UK and start preparatory activities on site during late summer 2002. Following a break during the winter, the main construction work will be completed during the first half of 2003.

    The Goldeneye offshore platform will be located in the Shell operated UKCS Block 14/29a, 105 km from Northeast Scotland in the South Halibut basin area of the Outer Moray Firth. The field is expected to be in production from 2004 for between 7 and 10 years.
