Subsea 7 has won a pipeline contract for the Equinor Northern Lights CCS project in Norway.
Equinor said the deal was worth “about NOK 500 million” (£42million).
The Northern Lights project comprises transportation, receipt and permanent storage of CO2 in a reservoir in the northern North Sea, with the subsea facilities are operated from Equinor’s Oseberg A platform in the North Sea.
It forms part of the wider full-scale carbon capture and storage project “Longship” in Norway.
Subsea 7 will engineer, fabricate and install a 60-mile CO2 pipeline that will run from the Northern Lights receiving terminal in Oygarden (in western Norway) to the Equinor storage complex offshore.
Fabrication of the pipelines will be carried out from Subsea 7’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway, with offshore operations taking place between 2022 and 2023.
John Evans, CEO of Subsea 7, said: “We are proud to be a trusted partner for this project. CCS is an important part of Subsea 7’s strategy to be a proactive participant in the energy transition and our continued drive for a more sustainable future.”
Meanwhile Aibel has been awarded a £11.7million EPCI deal for the subsea control system, with work starting this month.
Project management and engineering will be performed at Aibel’s offices in Bergen and Stavanger, and prefabrication will take place at its Haugesund yard.
Equinor chief procurement officer Peggy Krantz-Underland said: “The new contracts in the Northern Lights project will create important activity for the supplier industry.
“Most contracts are now in place, and we look forward to working together with the selected suppliers to realise this pioneering project,”
Last month Aker Solutions was awarded a contract worth around £110million to provide subsea equipment for injecting captured CO2 into a reservoir for permanent storage.
