Repsol has awarded a contract to energy services firm Proserv for upgrading and building new subsea production control equipment for the Yme field redevelopment in the Norwegian North Sea.
The Yme field has recoverable oil reserves estimated at around 65 million barrels over ten years of production.
The first oil from the field is scheduled for the first half of 2020.
The contract, which is valued at more than $5.5m, will see Proserv refurbish and upgrade the existing subsea control system to extend the life of the equipment.
Following the upgrade, the entire subsea control system will be equipped with high-speed data management and transmission capability with sufficient capacity for future field expansion or increased data capture.
Proserv Scandinavia region president Henrik Johnson said: “This is a significant award win for the team that clearly demonstrates the strength of our relationship with Repsol and our ability to deliver robust technology solutions and services on time and to the very highest standards.
