Subsea 7 joins the party with $150m Culzean contract from Maersk Oil

Oslo-listed Subsea 7 has won a contract from Maersk Oil for subsea, umbilical, riser and flowline work at the Culzean development in the UK North Sea.

The Maersk Oil operated high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) Culzean field in the UK Central North Sea was approved by the UK Oil & Gas Authority yesterday.

The $150m contract includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a 22″ diameter 52 km gas export pipeline connected to the central area transmission system, and a 3.6 km pipe-in-pipe providing insulation for the transportation of the condensate to the in-field FSO facility.

Subsea 7 said it will also provide subsea structures, tie-ins to the Culzean platform facilities and pre-commissioning expertise.

Phil Simons, vp of Subsea 7 UK and Canada, commented: “This large project awarded by Maersk Oil for their Culzean field development, confirms our reputation as a world-class provider of reliable and cost-effective SURF solutions.”

Project work will commence immediately, with offshore activities scheduled to commence in 2017 utilising a number of Subsea 7 vessels.

Earlier today Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine announced it had secured an EPC contract worth over $1bn from Maersk Oil for a central processing facility plus two connecting bridges, wellhead platform and utilities & living quarters platform topsides for the Culzean Field development.
