Subsea 7 has secured a substantial contract from Equinor for the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project in the North Sea, located 160km west from Stavanger in Norway.
According to Subsea 7, a substantial contract will be in the range of $150m to $300m.
The company will provide services including project management, engineering, procurement and construction. It will also be responsible for the installation of about 100km of rigid pipelines, including 40km of pipe-in-pipe flowlines, 27km of water injection and 37km of gas injection pipelines.
Subsea 7’s Marine Operations scope includes the installation of 23km of umbilicals, tie-in spools and precommissioning.
Subsea 7 Norway vice-president Monica Bjørkmann 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.”
The company will start project management and engineering at its offices located in Stavanger, Norway and carry out fabrication at spoolbase.
Offshore operations will be conducted using Subsea 7’s diving vessels and a reel-lay vessel in 2021. Equinor said that this will increase the share of contracts awarded to Norwegian suppliers in Phase 2 of the Johan Sverdrup project to 85%.
The first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development is nearly 90% completed and production is expected to start in November. For this phase, Subsea 7 delivered and installed several subsea components and tie-in of pipelines at the field.
The Johan Sverdrup licensees are Equinor (operator), Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP and Total.
