Oilfield services firm TechnipFMC has won an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract from Equinor for work in the Norwegian part of the North Sea.

The contract is for the pipelay work at the Breidablikk development. It also includes an option for the subsea installation scope located near the Grane Field in the North Sea.

The Breidablikk oil field is being developed approximately 185km west of Haugesund on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) in the North Sea.

It is located north-east of the Grane field in a water depth of 127m.

The oil field is planned to be developed as a tie-back to the existing Grane facility via four subsea templates, each containing six slots.

Under the latest contract, TechnipFMC’s scope includes the provision of flexible jumpers and rigid pipelines. It also comprises pipeline installation work.
