Technip was awarded by Statoil ASA two lump sum contracts for infield pipeline construction for the Johan Sverdrup Development and the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 projects.

Technip was awarded by Statoil ASA two lump sum contracts for infield pipeline construction for the Johan Sverdrup Development and the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 projects.

The Johan Sverdrup field is one of the largest oil fields in the North Sea and was discovered late 2011. The first development phase is targeted to be on-stream in 2019.

The Oseberg Vestflanken 2 project is a development of the oil and gas structures Alfa, Gamma and Kappa, approximately located at 8 kilometers northwest of the Oseberg field center.

The contracts awarded to Technip cover:

  • fabrication and installation of 29 kilometers of plastic lined 16” water injection flowlines for Johan Sverdrup,
  • fabrication and installation of 7.5 kilometers of 14” production pipeline and 9 kilometers of 10” gas injection pipeline for Oseberg Vestflanken 2.

While both projects will be executed by Technip’s operating center in Lysaker, Norway, the Group will leverage its unique subsea integrated approach from fabrication to installation:

  • the flowlines will be welded and fabricated at the Technip spoolbase in Orkanger, Norway,
  • installation will be carried out by Technip’s state-of-the-art reel-lay vessel Deep Energy, during the second half of 2017.

Fast facts about subsea products

Flowline: a pipe, laid on the seabed, which allows the transportation of oil/gas production or injection of fluids. Its length can vary from a few hundred meters to several kilometers.

Spoolbase: facility which is primarily used for the fabrication and spooling of rigid pipe onto vessels with Reel-lay capability. Technip owns and operates four rigid pipe spoolbase facilities located close to clients' deepwater developments.
