DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for performing marine operation scope on the Snorre Expansion Project in the North Sea.
The contract covers project management, engineering, procurement of anchors for risers and umbilicals and offshore installation operations.
The offshore business: installation of six integrated subsea template structures and manifolds, and installation of riser systems and umbilical systems on the Snorre A production platform.
The onshore project team will work out of DeepOcean’s offices in Haugesund and Stavanger, Norway. Offshore execution will be performed with DeepOcean’s construction vessel Edda Freya in 2019 and 2020.
DeepOcean’s commercial director for Subsea Services, Rolf Ivar Sordal, said: “The Snorre Expansion Project is one of the key development projects ongoing in the North Sea and we are pleased that Statoil has selected DeepOcean as their contractor for these demanding subsea operations.”
On 21 December, Statoil submitted a plan for development and operation (PDO) for the Snorre Expansion Project - which it calls the largest improved oil recovery project on the Norwegian Continental Shelf - and announced contract awards for the subsea production system with TechnipFMC, fabrication and installation of the pipeline bundle system with Subsea 7, modification work on Snorre A with Aibel and a rig with Transocean.
