Offshore staff

PARIS Statoil ASA has awarded Technip two lump-sum contracts for infield pipeline construction for the Johan Sverdrup and Oseberg Vestflanken 2 projects in the Norwegian North Sea.

For Johan Sverdrup, Technip will fabricate and install 29 km (18 mi) of plastic lined 16-in. water injection flowlines.

For Oseberg Vestflanken 2, the company will fabricate and install 7.5 km (4.7 mi) of 14-in. production pipeline and 9 km (6 mi) of 10-in. gas injection pipeline.

Both projects will be executed at its operating center in Lysaker, Norway. The flowlines will be welded and fabricated at the spoolbase in Orkanger, Norway. Installation will be carried out by Technip’s reel-lay vessel Deep Energy during the second half of 2017.

Discovered in 2011, the Johan Sverdrup field is one of the largest oil fields in the North Sea. The first development phase is targeted to be onstream in 2019.

The Oseberg Vestflanken 2 project is a development of the oil and gas structures Alfa, Gamma and Kappa, located about 8 km (5 mi) northwest of the Oseberg field center.

Odd Strømsnes, managing director of Technip in Norway, said: “We are looking forward to execute these projects collaboratively with Statoil in order to achieve the project goals.”
