Subsea 7 has been awarded a major contract by Equinor for works at its Northern Lights carbon capture project.
The contract scope includes engineering, fabrication and installation of a 100km CO2 pipeline that will run from Øygarden to the CO2 storage complex, as well as installation of umbilicals, tie-in and pre-commissioning activities.
Offshore operations will commence in 2022 and 2023.
The Northern Lights project is part of the Norwegian full-scale carbon capture and storage project Longship which comprises transportation, receipt and permanent storage of CO2 in a reservoir in the northern North Sea. The CO2 receiving terminal will be located in the municipality of Øygarden in Western Norway.
“We are proud to be a trusted partner for this project. CCS is an important part of Subsea 7’s strategy to be a proactive participant in the energy transition and our continued drive for a more sustainable future,” said John Evans, CEO of Subsea 7.
