Oslo: London-headquartered subsea operator Subsea 7 has been awarded four contracts by the operators of the Ichthys LNG Project, Chevron Australia and INPEX Operations Australia, for the engineering, procurement and construction of an emergency pipeline repair system (EPRS).
The EPRS contract includes the design, fabrication and procurement of repair equipment and development of repair methodologies to support the Chevron-operated pipelines and INPEX’s Ichthys pipeline off the North and Northwest coasts of Australia.
Stephen Steele, vice president for life of field services at Subsea 7, commented: “This award reinforces our position at the forefront of intervention and repair technologies and showcases one of Subsea 7’s key capabilities in the area of Life of Field services. We look forward to continuing our relationship with both companies.”
Project management, engineering and procurement will commence immediately from Subsea 7’s office in Perth, with site integration testing due to be completed by 2017.
