DeepOcean has been awarded a contract from Statoil to perform riser replacement and construction work in the North Sea and the Norwegian Sea.
The firm and optional scope of work comprises complex marine operations for replacement, installation and recovery of subsea lines and installation work at the Njord, Kristin, Troll C and Åsgard offshore fields.
Onshore engineering and preparatory work will start early 2018, and the offshore execution is set for 2019 and 2020, the company informed.
The onshore project team will work out of DeepOcean’s offices in Haugesund and Stavanger, Norway.
Rolf Ivar Sørdal, DeepOcean’s commercial director for Subsea Services, said: “DeepOcean has throughout 2016 and 2017 successfully performed complex and demanding subsea operations for Statoil and the construction vessel Edda Freya has introduced a new benchmark for efficiency and operability in SURF operations to the market. We believe this contract honours our achievements and further strengthens our solid relationship with Statoil. We are looking forward to further continuing our journey and work together with Statoil to ensure the project is successfully and safely executed.”
