Oil services firm Subsea 7 has announced it has been awarded a “sizeable” contract from Statoil for work on the Johan Castberg field development in the Barents Sea.
The company said the work is worth between $50 million and $150 million.
Subsea 7 will carry out design, coating, fabrication and installation of a 53km rigid flowline, including 34km of pipe-in-pipe flowline.
Offshore operations will be carried out until 2020, while project management and engineering will commence immediately from the Stavanger offices, with fabrication work at Subsea 7’s spoolbase at Vigra.
The Johan Castberg field lies 240km (150miles) off the coast of Hammerfest in Norway.
Phil Simons, Subsea 7’s Vice President North Sea and Canada, said, “We are pleased to have been awarded this key project by Statoil and to be part of the further development of the oil and gas infrastructure in the Barents Sea, delivering regional content in the North of Norway.
“This award draws upon Subsea 7’s substantial experience in safely and effectively delivering rigid pipelay projects.”
