Norwegian offshore service contractor Subsea 7 has been awarded an EPCI contract by Statoil for the Snorre Expansion Project located in the Tampen area of Norway.
The contract includes Subsea 7’s pipeline bundle technology, which contains all flowlines and control umbilicals necessary for operation. Production of the pipeline bundle system will take place at Subsea 7’s fabrication facilities at Wick, Scotland. Project management and engineering will commence immediately at Subsea 7’s offices in Stavanger, Norway and Aberdeen, Scotland. Offshore operations will commence in 2019 and 2020.
“Subsea 7 looks forward to working closely with Statoil to safely and successfully deliver our workscope on the Snorre project. This award demonstrates the versatility and economic benefit Subsea 7 can offer through its unique Pipeline Bundle technology, where all service lines are integrated in a single product and installed using our Controlled Depth Tow Method. It also recognises our proven track record, with more than 80 Bundles installed in the North Sea,” said Phil Simons, Subsea 7’s vice President, North Sea and Canada.
