Subsea 7 has been awarded of a major contract by Aker BP for the Aerfugl Phase 2 gas field development in the Norwegian Sea.
The EPCI contract is a long-distance tie-back involving the application of Subsea 7’s electrically heat traced flowline (EHTF) technology for a distance of 13.5km from the subsea location to the existing Skarv infrastructure.
The value of the contract is between $50m and $150m.
Project management and engineering will commence immediately and fabrication of the EHTF system will take place at Subsea 7’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway with offshore operations taking place during 2020 and 2021.
“This award acknowledges Subsea 7 as a key partner in the delivery of pioneering technology, underlining our proven track record of safe and successful project execution in some of the harshest offshore environments. Electrically Heat Traced Flowlines have been developed by Subsea 7, in collaboration with InterPipe, to deliver leading insulation performance and enable cost-effective long-distance tie-backs. We look forward to continuing our alliance with Aker BP for the development of Aerfugl and future projects,” said Monica Bjørkmann, vice president of Subsea 7 Norway.
