Norway: DeepOcean Awarded Subsea Removal Contract

DeepOcean AS, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding AS, has been awarded a contract by AF Group in connection with the removal and recycling contract for the B-11 riser platform cessation project for Statoil, on behalf of Gassco as operator for Gassled. The contract is an option in the existing contract DeepOcean was awarded in 2011 by AF Group for similar work at the H-7 platform, which now has been declared.

The platform, which is part of a gas pipeline system that transports gas to Europe, is located on the German continental shelf of the North Sea. The work covers planning, engineering and execution of subsea removal work on the jacket substructure as well as preparatory inspections and seabed intervention work offshore. In this context DeepOcean will use its own vessels as well as ROV’s and various cutting equipment.

The estimated contract value is in excess of NOK 75 million. The work will start immediately and will be completed within end of 2016.

“This is the 3rd significant award of a decommissioning contract to DeepOcean the last 12 months following the award of the Statfjord SFC loading buoy EPRD contract by Statoil and the H-7 contract with AF Group. I’m pleased to learn that our customers appreciate the skills and capabilities of DeepOcean in the decommissioning segment. Also, I’m looking forward to yet again co-operate with the AF Group on a challenging project where the joint capabilities of the two companies are brought together”, says Mads Bårdsen, President in DeepOcean in a comment.

DeepOcean Group is an integrated provider of comprehensive subsea engineering solutions and has a demonstrated track-record in highly-engineered, complex subsea construction projects for the oil & gas, offshore wind and telecommunication industries.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
