Technip UK will perform saturation diving in connection with the Gaupe development using the DSV Skandi Arctic. Water depth at the site is 82-90 m (269-295 ft).

Gaupe is on the median line between the Norwegian and UK sectors, 12 km (7.5 mi) south of the Talisman-operated Varg complex.

Technip’s program will start this month and should last 30 days, 12 of these days on the Norwegian shelf.
