Offshore staff

HAUGESUND, Norway – Statoil has commissioned DeepOcean to handle riser/umbilical and cable installations for the Kristin and Heidrun platforms in the Norwegian Sea, in readiness for the subsea tieback of Wintershall’s Maria development.

The new construction vessel Edda Freya, due to join the DeepOcean fleet early next year, will perform the installations during summer 2016, supported by one of its light construction vessels.

The company’s duties comprise preparation of subsea infrastructure and installation of a dynamic control umbilical, a direct electrical heating cable and optional change-out of a production riser on the Kristin semisubmersible platform, and installation of a water injection riser on the Heidrun TLP.
