(EnergyAsia, November 22 2011, Tuesday) — Honeywell said it has secured the role of main electrical and instrumentation building contractor from the Hoang Long Joint Operating Company (HLJOC) for its H-04 wellhead platform in Vietnam’s Te Giac Trang (TGT) offshore field.

The award follows Honeywell’s successful completion of work on the field’s first phase earlier this year within budget and schedule.

One of the largest joint operating companies in Vietnam, HLJOC is a state-owned partnership comprising PetroVietnam, PTTEP, SOCO International and OPECO.

When completed and operating at capacity on site in the Cuu Long Basin off southern Vietnam, the facility will be capable of producing more than 55,000 barrels of oil per day.

Honeywell said its HPS process solutions unit was selected as main contractor for this project based on its strong engineering expertise and proven track record in meeting fast-track delivery schedules.

The project will require Honeywell to execute the design, procurement, construction, integration, testing and commissioning for the electrical and instrumentation building of the oil platform. HPS will also supply the main and backup power generators, wellhead control panel and chemical injection skid.

Ngo Huu Hai, general manager of HLJOC, said:

“When we reach full production, the Te Giac Trang oil field will be a significant generator of resources for Vietnam and its business partners.

“As a recent discovery, initiating operations quickly and safely in the oil field was of the utmost importance. Honeywell was able to provide a high level of project management, integration capability and reduced schedule risk that we couldn’t find anywhere else.”

Tony Cosgrove, Honeywell Process Solutions’ vice president for Asia Pacific, said:

“When these wellhead platforms are optimized, the Te Giac Trang oil field will play a crucial role in Vietnam’s energy production and lessen reliance on foreign sources of oil.

“The Hoang Long Joint Operating Company’s decision to award both projects to Honeywell reflects the growing acceptance of turn-key solutions and their importance in helping our customers in the oil and gas industry exceed their business objectives.”
