Jacobs Engineering Group has received a contract from ONEgas to perform engineering services for the decomplexing of its K15-FA platform in the North Sea.

ONEgas is a combined business unit of Shell UK Exploration & Production (Shell) and the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij B.V. (NAM).

The contract is the first to be signed under a new Enterprise Framework Agreement between ONEgas and Jacobs.

The decomplexing process involves transitioning K15-FA to an unmanned platform without gas treatment installations, as the gas will subsequently be treated on the centrally located K14.

The project will enable ONEgas to reduce power consumption, operational costs and enhance safety management.

“Jacobs’ oil and gas experience with the L13-FC project will have a significant impact on the successful delivery of the K15-FA platform decomplexing project,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President Upstream Oil & Gas Bassim Shebaro. “Our existing partnership with ONEgas and successful decomplexing of the L13-FC platform in 2016 was a key factor in receiving this award.”
