Subsea 7 has received a substantial contract, between USD 150 million and USD 300 million, from Equinor for the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project, located in the North Sea, 160 kilometers west from Stavanger in Norway.
The EPIC contract comprises project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of approximately 100 kilometers of rigid pipelines, including 40 kilometers of pipe-in-pipe flowlines, 27 kilometers of water injection and 37 kilometers of gas injection pipelines.
The marine operations scope includes the installation of 23 kilometers of umbilicals, tie-in spools and precommissioning.
Project management and engineering will start immediately at Subsea 7’s offices in Stavanger, Norway.
Fabrication will take place at Subsea 7’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway and offshore operations will be carried out in 2021 using a number of vessels, including one of the diving vessels and a reel-lay vessel specially designed to deliver flowline technologies that address long-distance and more complex tie-back developments.
Monica Bjørkmann, Subsea 7’s vice president Norway, said, “This award continues our long-standing collaborative relationship with Equinor and draws upon Subsea 7’s substantial experience in delivering SURF solutions reliably, safely and sustainably. Subsea 7 looks forward to working closely with Equinor to successfully deliver our work scope on Johan Sverdrup, with safety and quality at the forefront throughout.”
