STAVANGER, Norway Statoil has awarded FMC Kongsberg Subsea AS a contract for engineering, procurement, and construction of subsea equipment for the Johan Sverdrup project in the North Sea.

The contract has an estimated value of NOK 1.3 billion ($160 million), and includes deliveries of 13 subsea trees and wellheads, in addition to three subsea templates and control systems.

In addition, contracts have been awarded for aftermarket services and additional components related to the Johan Sverdrup field.

The contracts include options for further deliveries to cover any future needs on the Johan Sverdrup field, and other possible field developments on the Norwegian continental shelf.

In the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development, three standard templates will be installed north and south of the field center, on water depths of 110 to 120 m (360 to 397 ft). The subsea templates will be controlled and supplied with produced water or seawater through pipelines from the field center.

Statoil and FMC Technologies have in parallel negotiated a contractual framework which will form the basis for future tender processes for subsea projects, operational services, and studies.
