By admin-demo

Norwegian energy firm Statoil has awarded more work to Ocean Installer on the Visund and Troll B fields.

The amendments require Ocean Installer to deploy an umbilical marine at the Visund field, and replace a riser at the Troll B field.

Ocean Installer will implement the work under the SLMP marine installation contract.

" We are pleased to have secured more work for a key client like Statoil. The Norwegian Continental Shelf continues to be an area of great importance to us."

At the Visund field, the company will install new umbilical riser systems, including vertical anchor and mud mat, for supporting termination assembly.

At the Troll B field, Ocean Installer will take on the subsea disconnection and removal of existing risers, the installation and subsea tie-in of new risers, and the transport and offloading of existing risers at the Stord Base.

Ocean Installer will use the Normand Vision construction support vessel as the installation craft for both projects. The water depth in both areas is approximately 330m.

The Visund field is located in the Tampen area, in blocks 34/7 and 34/8, about 140km west of Sognefjorden, and 22km north-east of the Gullfaks field. Troll is located around 80km west of Bergen.

The Troll project will be carried out in June, while the Visund umbilical offshore operations are scheduled to begin in August.

Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise said: "We are pleased to have secured more work for a key client like Statoil. The Norwegian Continental Shelf continues to be an area of great importance to us."
