Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary Technip Umbilicals has been awarded a contract by Statoil to supply the umbilical to the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 field offshore Norway.
This field is located approximately eight kilometers North West of the Oseberg field center at Block 30/9-30/6 on the Norwegian continental shelf, at water depths of 100 meters.
The contract covers project management, engineering and manufacture of over nine kilometers of static steel tube umbilical. The umbilical includes a large bore integrated service line and multiple power cables, the company said.
Technip Umbilicals’ facility in Newcastle, UK, will manufacture the equipment, which is scheduled to be completed during the first half of 2017.
Sarah Cridland, managing director of Technip Umbilicals, said: “As a company we have invested significantly in our Newcastle facility and it is encouraging to see the award of contracts, such as Oseberg, from this. This is an extremely important recognition to Technip Umbilicals from Statoil.”
