At Oseberg the job is the fabrication of pipeline spools and protection covers, as well as the installation of umbilical, tie-in and pre-commissioning. At Johan Sverdrup work includes the installation of three subsea templates for water injection.

Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer, commented: “We are truly pleased to have secured these contracts with Statoil in today’s highly competitive market. The awards will contribute to maintaining a good activity level for the Ocean Installer organisation also for next year, and is an opportunity for Ocean Installer to further develop our solid working relationship with Statoil.”

Offshore operations will take place in the second and third quarters of 2017.
