Carbis Awarded Vessel Internals for BP Clair Ridge Project

Carbis secures orders for a large number of internals for the BP Clair project. Materials are a combination of Duplex and Super Duplex and our scope includes the provision of assemblies and components for the treatment of produced water and sea water.

This is the second phase of development of the giant Clair field, located to the west of the Shetland Islands. The development will involve the construction and installation of two new, bridge-linked platforms, scheduled to be installed in 2015 with production expected to commence in 2016. The new facilities are being designed for 40 years of production and will require a total capital investment of circa £4.5 billion.

The new development will have the capability to produce an estimated 640 million barrels of oil and will provide a hub for future expansion, subject to further appraisal. Peak production is expected to be up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day.
