HAUGESUND, NorwayEquinor has contracted DeepOcean to perform marine operations for the installation of the Vigdis boosting station in the Norwegian North Sea.

The offshore work will include rock removal, installation, and tie-in of subsea pipelines and installation of subsea structures at the Vigdis and Snorre fields, with options for further work at Vigdis.

The NOK1.4-billion ($163-million) boosting station, due to come online in early 2021, includes multi-phase boosting to increase oil production from existing wells.

It will be connected to the pipeline to enhance capacity between Vigdis and Snorre A and will help bring the well stream from the subsea field to the platform.

Equinor stated in its original announcement that there would also be modifications both to Snorre A, which receives Vigdis’ oil, and Snorre B, which will send power to the boosting station via a new umbilical.

DeepOcean expects to conduct all offshore work during 2020.
