Testimonials from Equinor for BPT’s simulation study of Bay du Nord

During last quarter of 2021, BPT carried out a detailed simulation study for Equinor’s Bay du Nord field development project (located offshore east-coast Canada). BPT is delighted to receive the following testimonials from Equinor upon completion of the study work:

"Thanks for a well-done job and within/below budget! Very pleased with your team’s performance and deliverables this time, and after we have digested this, we will be in touch again for additional work. This was quality work, which really helped us a lot moving forward on both conceptual issues". Stated by Robin Pearson, Bay du Nord – FPSO Topside/Global Engineering Manager, Equinor

The aim of the study was to increase maturity and confidence in the following aspects of the FPSO design during the conceptual phase:

  • Flare design versus inlet arrangement overpressure protection cases 
  • Gas compression base case selection
