Apache North Sea has awarded engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) contract to Subsea 7 as part of its Callater development 335km north-east of Aberdeen.

Under the contract, Subsea 7 will provide services including project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a 4km, 45in pipeline bundle system comprising production lines, and power and supply services.

The job will also include installation of 13km electro-control umbilical, associated structures, field testing and pre-commissioning works.

Subsea 7 will begin project management and engineering work with immediate effect from its offices in Aberdeen.

Offshore activities of the contract are planned to take place during the first quarter of 2017.

"Subsea 7 will begin project management and engineering work with immediate effect."

Subsea 7 vice-president UK and Canada Phil Simons said: "This award demonstrates our ability to collaborate with our clients to produce cost-effective technical solutions.

"It further recognises the 35-year proven track record of our Pipeline Bundle technology for extending subsea infrastructure lifespans, whilst offering clients considerable cost savings from having all service lines integrated in a single product."

The Callater field is planned to be brought online during mid-2017. It was said to be among three fields, including Seagull and Corona that were discovered in 2015 in the Beryls area,

Apache said that the Beryls area comprises unrisked net reserve potential of 350Mboe-600Mboe.
