Subsea 7 in Large Contract Award From Equinor
London based offshore projects and services providing company ‘Subsea 7’ said, the EPIC contract comprises project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of approximately 100 kilometres of rigid pipelines, including 40 kilometres of pipe-in-pipe flowlines, 27 kilometres of water injection and 37 kilometres of gas injection pipelines. The Marine Operations scope includes the installation of 23 kilometres of umbilicals, tie-in spools and precommissioning.
The contract award is worth between U$ 150 – 300 Million.
Project management and engineering work will commence immediately at Subsea 7’s offices in Stavanger, Norway.
However, fabrication will take place at Subsea 7’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway and offshore operations will be carried out in 2021 using a number of vessels, including one of our state-of-the-art diving vessels and a reel-lay vessel specially designed to deliver innovative flowline technologies that address long-distance and more complex tie-back developments.
Monica Bjørkmann, Subsea 7’s Vice President Norway, said, “This award continues our long-standing collaborative relationship with Equinor and draws upon Subsea 7’s substantial experience in delivering SURF solutions reliably, safely and sustainably. Subsea 7 looks forward to working closely with Equinor to successfully deliver our workscope on Johan Sverdrup, with safety and quality at the forefront throughout.’
We believes ‘Seven Vega’ could be assigned this job.
Subsea 7 recently launched Reel-Lay Vessel “Seven Vega” at Royal IHC in Krimpen aan den IJssel (Netherlands) on 27th May, 2019.
When delivered, Seven Vega will be one of the most capable and cost-effective reel-lay vessels in the market and a global enabler for Subsea 7. It has been designed to deliver economical technologies that address the growing market trend towards longer tie-back developments.
Seven Vega’s cutting-edge pipelay system focuses on crew safety, operational efficiency and flexibility. This system will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines, including pipe-in-pipe systems and electrically heat-traced flowlines in water depths up to 3000m.
