Subsea 7 has received a $95m contract from an international oil and gas operator to supply equipment in the UK Central North Sea.

Under the terms of the contract, the company will undertake project management, engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of a 7.5km pipeline bundle.

The bundle will contain an eight-inch production pipeline, a six-inch gas lift pipeline and controls systems. It is expected to be tied back to a single production well and an existing subsea manifold and platforms.

Subsea 7 will begin engineering and project management work in June 2012, with offshore operations slated to begin in 2014.

Steph McNeill, Subsea 7’s vice president UK and Canada, said: "Fabrication will take place at our Wick facility in Scotland, which has a proven track record of successful bundle design, fabrication and installation."
