DeepOcean has been awarded an EPCI contract from Statoil to perform remote hyperbaric tie-in of the oil export pipeline on the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.
The scope of work includes project management, engineering, procurement and installation of the 36-inch oil export spool and remote hyperbaric tie-in of the oil export pipeline to the Johan Sverdrup riser platform with Statoil’s remote welding spread from the Pipeline Repair System base on Killingøy, Haugesund.
DeepOcean’s onshore project team will work out of the company’s offices in Haugesund, Norway. Offshore construction will be performed with DeepOcean’s Edda Freya vessel and is scheduled for 2018 or 2019.
We are extremely pleased to receive this award and perform the world’s first planned subsea remote welding tie-in with our state of the art SURF construction vessel Edda Freya, and we are looking forward to cooperate with Statoil and the PRS pool contractors on this interesting and ground breaking project,” DeepOcean’s Commercial Director for Subsea Services, Rolf Ivar Sørdal, said.
The contract is part of Statoil’s Marine Wave #2 tender program.
