Statoil broadens Technip contract scope for Asgard
Statoil has contracted Technip for intervention services on the Asgard subsea compression stations in the Norwegian Sea.
PARIS – Statoil has contracted Technip for intervention services on the Asgard subsea compression stations in the Norwegian Sea. This is a call-off under Technip’s existing marine operations contract for the same project.
The new contract extends use of the dedicated vessel to other IMR and construction work, for Asgard and other licenses held by Statoil offshore Norway.
Technip’s center in Stavanger will manage the program, which starts in 2015 following completion of the initial installation of the subsea compression modules, and continues to mid-2018.
TheNorth Sea Giant, which will handle the offshore work, will feature a purpose-built handling system for installation and recovery of heavy subsea compression modules (up to 400 tons) in adverse sea states (wave height: Hs 4.5 m/14.7 ft).
