Norwegian subsea installation firm Ocean Installer has been awarded a subsea, umbilicals, risers, flowlines (SURF) project at the Al Jurf oil field in the Mediterranean.
The work will include the replacement of a 10 inch flexible flowline between a fixed drilling and production platform and a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.
Ocean Installer’s chief executive Steinar Riise said: “We are very happy with this award and the opportunity to continue to develop our solid working relationship with Total E&P, or as in this case a Total E&P Joint Venture, further.
“The award also contributes to strengthen our foothold in the Mediterranean, proving our strategy of continued geographical expansion successful.”
The project will be managed from the company’s Aberdeen and Stavanger offices in cooperation with Mabruk Oil Operations and onshore engineering will start immediately.
Mobilisation and oddshore operations are scheduled for Q3 or Q4 this year.
The Al Jurf field is located 150 kilometres north west off the coast of Tripoli.
The field is operated by Mabruk Oil Operations – a joint venture between Total E&P and the National Oil Cooperation (NOC) of Libya.
