About 70 employees will lose their jobs, bringing it to a 37 per cent reduction of Subsea 7’s Norway offshore staff.

Included in the service are two subsea production tie-backs to the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The Stones field is located in the Walker Ridge area in the US Gulf of Mexico, at a water depth of 2,930 meters along the pipelay route.
