Subsea 7 picked for Johan Sverdrup phase two job

Equinor has dished out a contract for subsea pipelines and marine operations for phase two of the Johan Sverdrup project to Subsea 7.

It means 85% of work on the development has gone to Norwegian suppliers.

The first phase is nearly 90% complete, with production to start in November.

In phase one, Subsea 7 delivered and installed several subsea components and tie-in of pipelines at the field.

For phase two, Subsea 7 will install 100 kilometres of infield pipelines and 25 spools.

It will also install umbilicals and provide “marine operations”.

The parties did not disclose a precise contract value, but it is understood to be worth somewhere between $150 million and $300m.

Trond Bokn, project director for the Johan Sverdrup development, said: “Subsea 7 is awarded the last major subsea contract for Johan Sverdrup phase 2. Based on good experiences and learning from phase one, the award will ensure continuity and a coherent development of the entire Johan Sverdrup field.

“This will give us a good foundation for enhancing our collaboration on safety, efficiency and further improvements in the execution phase and afterwards in the operating phase.”

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 workscope on Johan Sverdrup, with safety and quality at the forefront throughout.”
