Statoil Hires Aibel for Maria Job

Stavanger-based Aibel has scooped a NOK 860 million (approximately $115 million) EPCI contract for work related to planned water injection from the Heidrun platform to the Wintershall-operated Maria field.

According to the company, under the contract, Aibel will increase the water injection capacity of Heidrun and perform the tie-in of the water injection from the platform to the Maria field via a riser.

The job includes various modifications necessary for the connection work. Aibel will purchase and install new SRP filter packages, upgrade existing equipment, expand the riser balcony, move a lifeboat, and upgrade the platform’s control system.

The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) project will be managed from Aibel’s Haugesund office and will involve 170 workers at its peak.

“We’re very pleased to have secured this contract in a difficult market. This shows that the changes we’ve made in our company have had a positive effect,” commented CEO Jan Skogseth.

Furthermore, Aibel has informed that the work will start immediately and will be completed in spring 2018. The contract has been awarded by Statoil, which is responsible for the part of the Maria field related to Heidrun.
