EXHEAT Receives Contract to Deliver Gas Flow Heater for Forties Oil Field Project

EXHEAT Ltd has announced today that it has been awarded a contract to deliver an Exd electric gas flow heater and safe area thyristor control to be used at the Apache operated Aviat gas field, located 20 kilometres from the Forties Oil Field in the North Sea.


The Aviat Field is located in Block 22/7a of the central North Sea, and is approximately 188 km from Scotlandís coast. Apache plans to drill up to two production wells which will be completed as a subsea development connected to a Pipeline End Manifold, then tied back to the Forties Alpha Platform.


The Aviat field is anticipated to start producing in 2016, and is being developed to provide a fuel gas resource supply for the Forties Field.
