Technip was awarded by Statoil ASA two lump sum contracts for infield pipeline construction for the Johan Sverdrup Development and the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 projects.

The Johan Sverdrup field is one of the largest oilfields in the North Sea and was discovered late 2011. The first development phase is targeted to be onstream in 2019.

The Oseberg Vestflanken 2 project is a development of the oil and gas structures Alfa, Gamma and Kappa, approximately located at 8 km northwest of the Oseberg field center.

The contracts

The contracts awarded to Technip cover:

  • Fabrication and installation of 29 km of plastic lined 16 in. water injection flowlines for Johan Sverdrup.
  • Fabrication and installation of 7.5 km of 14 in. production pipeline and 9 km of 10 in. gas injection pipeline for Oseberg Vestflanken 2.

While both projects will be executed by Technip’s operating centre in Lysaker, Norway, the Group will leverage its unique subsea integrated approach from fabrication to installation:

  • The flowlines will be welded and fabricated at the Technip spoolbase in Orkanger, Norway.
  • Installation will be carried out by Technip’s state-of-the-art reel-lay vessel Deep Energy, during the 2H17.

Comments from Technip

Odd Strømsnes, Managing Director of Technip in Norway, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded these two prestigious contracts by Statoil in a very competitive business environment. This demonstrates Technip’s leading position in fabrication and installation of complex flowlines. We are looking forward to execute these projects collaboratively with Statoil in order to achieve the project goals.”
