Cooper Energy Ltd has awarded Subsea 7 S.A. a sizeable contract for the Sole development project. The Sole gas field is located in the eastern part of the Gippsland Basin, approximately 40 km offshore Victoria (Australia).
The scope of the contract includes the subsea tie-back of the Sole well to the Orbost gas plant, including the fabrication and installation of 64 km of pipeline, spool and manifold, along with the installation of a 64 km umbilical and the commissioning of the system.
Project management and engineering will commence immediately from Subsea 7’s office in Perth (Australia). While offshore operations are scheduled to commence in 2018, the material offshore operations are subject to the Sole development project’s final investment decision, which is anticipated soon.
Andy Woolgar, Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand at Subsea 7, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this key project from Cooper Energy Ltd. This award draws upon Subsea 7’s substantial experience of delivering projects in the Gippsland basin over the last 40 years. We look forward to leveraging this established and proven record in pipeline fabrication and offshore installation to help Cooper Energy as it develops its offshore gas resources.”
