Crondall to support Siccar Point’s Cambo development

first_imgCrondall Energy, a floating production and subsea specialist, has secured a frame agreement contract with Siccar Point Energy to provide support on the Cambo field, West of Shetland.The support will initially cover the identification and evaluation of FPSO options for the development and pre-FEED technical assurance of the subsea design, Crondall said on Monday.The FPSO scope of work includes consideration of a range of FPSO options, including newbuilds, re-deployments and conversions. The FPSO studies will consider the suitability of the various options from the perspective of their suitability for operations in the challenging West of Shetland environment, as well as compliance and suitability for operations on the UK continental shelf (UKCS).The subsea engineering work scope involves peer review and peer assist activities on the preFEED subsea design, including flow assurance and operability reviews. Crondall is providing Siccar Point with an assurance service which is suited to operators implementing the latest cost-efficient contracting models.Duncan Peace, Crondall Energy’s Managing Director, said “As an independent consultancy with expertise across floating and subsea systems we are delighted to be working with Siccar Point and to be playing a critical role in developing the Cambo field.”Crondall Energy is currently working as client engineer on the Lancaster field project, also off the west coast of Shetland, for Hurricane Energy where it is supporting the operator with the delivery of the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the Aoku Mizu, which will be used during the EPS phase of the field’s development. The FPSO recently sailed away from a shipyard in Dubai for completion of a final scope of work in Rotterdam before proceeding to the Lancaster field located in the West of Shetland area.The Cambo Field is located 125 km north-west of the Shetland Islands and lies 30 km southwest of Rosebank and 50 km north of Schiehallion. The field was discovered in 2002 and has five wells drilled into the structure. Siccar Point acquired a 100% operated interest in the field from the takeover of OMV (U.K.) in January 2017 and brought Shell UK in as a partner in May 2018.Siccar Point Energy recently celebrated a successful well test on the Cambo field, with better than anticipated results. The well, drilled using the Seadrill-owned semi-submersible drilling rig West Hercules, will now also be incorporated into the field development plan and has been suspended for use as a future development.Crondall Energy will execute the FPSO evaluation from its Winchester and London offices, while the subsea engineering work scopes will be provided from the Aberdeen office.last_img read more

NFL will have 58 prospects participating remotely in draft

first_imgDespite the logistical challenges of operating a 255-pick draft remotely, teams will still have just 10 minutes between picks in the first round, seven for rounds 2 and 3 and five for rounds 4-7.The Cincinnati Bengals own the first overall pick.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditNEW YORK (AP) — Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young are among 58 prospects who will participate virtually in the NFL draft next week that will double as a telethon to raise money to fight the coronavirus crisis.Burrow is one of eight LSU players who will take part in the April 23-25 draft, one more than Alabama.Normally, top prospects would be invited to the draft itself, but this year’s festivities in Las Vegas were scuttled by the coronavirus outbreak and the draft will instead be conducted in a studio with the league’s 32 teams participating remotely from their hometowns.

More than one in 10 U.S. workers have lost their jobs in just the past three weeks to the pandemic. Worldwide, more than 1.5 million people have been confirmed infected and about 90,000 have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. The SEC leads all conferences with 24 prospects confirmed to participate in the event, which will serve as a three-day virtual fundraiser benefiting six charities that are battling the virus and delivering relief to millions in need.Those charities are: the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross; CDC Foundation’s All of Us; and the COVID-19 response funds of Feeding America, Meals on Wheels America and United Way.

No Rob Gronkowski, (likely) no problem for Patriots’ offense around Tom Brady

first_imgTom Brady and the Patriots now officially know they will no longer have the services of Rob Gronkowski in their quest to win more Super Bowls. On paper, the retirement of the future Hall of Fame tight end leaves New England a passing game with limited weapons and unlimited questions about whether this will finally set in motion the true decline of their six-ringed quarterback.Just like every other situation in which it might have be prudent to write off the Patriots, they will evolve to get new answers from other personnel. MORE: Gronkowski saved his best for lastIn fairness, the Patriots did struggle to find the end zone in Super Bowl 53 until Gronk made a signature Gronk-like play to save the day. The best tight end on their current roster for 2019 is recently signed Matt LaCosse. Their wide receiver depth chart behind Julian Edelman reads Phillip Dorsett and two more newcomers, Maurice Harris and Bruce Ellington. No Gronkowski also means one less strong blocker for running back Sony Michel.Behind New England, there are several offensive-minded upstarts waiting in line to take the AFC throne, led by Kansas City, Indianapolis and, yes, Cleveland. Now Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck and Baker Mayfield all seem to have better support than Brady does.However, this is forgetting that Gronk was very un-Gronk-like for most of his final NFL season, and history shows there’s always another offensive Patriot ready to come through to help Brady in the clutch.Troy Brown. Kevin Faulk. Deion Branch. James White. Edelman, your reigning Super Bowl MVP.MORE: Belichick reacts to Gronk’s retirementThe Patriots have lived by the motto of “Do Your Job” to consistently win at a high level in the Bill Belichick era. That has been redefined as Do Someone Else’s Old Job, stepping into vacancies created by injuries, retirements or other departures. The hole Gronkowski leaves is literally bigger than those left by most, but one can already see some of the Patriots’ calculated replacement plan in motion.Harris is a massive slot guy at 6-3, 200 pounds, while Ellington is the more traditional Patriots inside mighty mite at 5-9, 200 pounds. LaCosse, who showed some receiving upside with the Broncos and Giants, is built like Gronk at 6-6, 255 pounds.It’s almost like the Patriots (shocker) were well prepared for Gronkowski’s decision. They also are sitting on the No. 32 pick in the draft, in the wheelhouse to tap into the near-top of a strong tight end class. Logic would suggest super-athletic Iowa prospect Noah Fant is in play to pair with LaCosse should, as expected, his former Hawkeyes teammate T.J. Hockenson be drafted earlier in the first round. MORE: Brady’s reaction to Gronk’s retirementWith offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the Patriots have had to reinvent themselves several times, often when Gronkowski was not healthy enough to play. Brady and the Patriots will miss Gronkowski just like any team would miss a transcendent talent. But unlike other teams, there will be nothing panicky or predictable about how they go about doing it.As long as Brady is in New England to orchestrate it all — and there’s no concern of him following his friend and former teammate into the sunset just yet — it will be same success, different way.center_img But who knows? The Patriots might not force the issue with two tight ends. They might lean on the various size-speed-quickness skill sets of Edelman, Dorsett, Harris and Ellington and spread the field more that way for Brady. They could use that first-rounder on a wideout to further that effort. Josh Gordon could be available to them again. Heck, the Patriots might even be one step ahead by going back to an old-school ground and pound with Michel, taking advantage of more pass-oriented defensive back sevens.Remember, this is a team that used a fullback, James Develin, as an outside receiver to create trickle-down matchup problems in the Super Bowl. Most teams don’t employ that position anymore anywhere, period. Ask the Rams; you just never know with the Patriots until they exploit a weakness you didn’t even know you had.last_img read more
