The Shtokman field is one of the world’s largest natural gas fields and lies in the Russian sector of the Barents Sea. The production site is located far beyond the Arctic Circle in severe climate conditions.
Shtokman Development AG organized the project that included engineering, development, construction, financing and exploitation of first phase facilities related to the development of the Shtokman field. At the initial stage the project is expected to produce 22.5 billion cubic meter (bcm) of natural gas and 205,000 tons of gas condensate annually.
The gas together with gas condensate arrives from the offshore Shtokman field to the onshore facilities. These facilities include:
- Gas processing and compression facility
- LNG processing and storage facilities
- Marine export facilities
Scope of work
Multiconsult has been involved in the development of the onshore gas reception, processing and export plant for the Shtokman phase 1 project since 2007. Contracts with StatoilHydro Norway, Shtokman Development AG and Technipe France have covered the civil area with the responsibility for feasibility studies, and later conceptual studies, pre- and detail engineering and authority documentation related to site preparation. The contract with Technip France has covered both feasibility and conceptual studies and front end engineering and design (FEED) for harbor facilities. Russian GT Morstroy have been Multiconsult’s subcontractors in all contracts.
For both contracts the purpose of the feasibility studies was to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of the project, identifying business development consequences, challenges and the potential of the proposed project.
