Kirinskoye is the first offshore field in Russia to utilise a subsea system for natural gas production. The field holds over 100 billion cubic metres of gas and 11.4 million tonnes of gas condensate. The Kirinskoye gas and condensate field is part of the 'Kirinsky block' in the Sea of Okhotsk and is one of the main development priorities for Gazprom, the world's largest gas producer. The field is part of a Russian Federation strategy for development of an integrated gas production, transportation and supply system to the regions of Eastern Siberia and the Far East.
Ramboll was awarded a FEED study for Balticconnector - an offshore 20” gas transportation pipeline of approximately 81 km (50 miles) in the Gulf of Finland aiming at interconnecting the Finnish and Estonian natural gas distribution networks.
Ramboll was awarded a feasibility study in joint venture with Gazoprojekt, and Ernst & Young as sub-consultants, to provide socioeconomic, financial and technical foundation for the prospective Baltic Pipe implementation.
As part of the development of the Sleipner area, Statoil planned to utilise existing process and export facilities for production from satellite platforms. Statoil selected Ramboll to perform FEED and detailed engineering of subsea pipelines to the satellite field, Gina Krog.
