110. Subsea Challenges in North Sea Projects The Chevron-operated Rosebank project is located approximately 80 miles (130 kilometres) north -west of the Shetland Islands in blocks 213/26 and 213/2. It lies in water depths of approximately 3,600 feet (1,100 meters) and will be Chevron’s first deep water development in the UK. The field, discovered in 2004, is estimated to contain total potentially recoverable oil equivalent resources of 240 million barrels. The planned development will include a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel tied to subsea production and water injection wells and a gas export pipeline. Any West of Shetland deepwater development is susceptible to harsh weather, rough sea states and phenomenal offshore environmental forces. In the case of Rosebank this is exacerbated by the large distance offshore and the deepwater nature of the project. This project will focus on an overview of the subsea engineering technical challenges involved with developing a field in this environment.
