Featuring Alpha, Gamma and Kappa oil and gas structures, Oseberg Vestflanken 2 is situated nearly 8km north-west of Oseberg field centre.

Tekmar Energy Subsea sales and strategy head Charlie Sullivan said: “This project was our first opportunity to work with a new customer and we were very pleased to be able to successfully deliver on time and to specification.

“Additionally, we were able to utilise our new, state-of-the-art, load test rig which has recently been installed at our Newton Aycliffe facility.

“This equipment enables us to test to much higher loads in-house than previously and increases our capability for future projects.”
