Equinor awarded Subsea 7 a contract for installation and diving operations on the Europipe II, Heimdal, and Statfjord (EHS) fields, located in the Danish and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. Subsea 7 terms the contract “sizeable,” between $50 million to $150 million.
The contract comprises engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of pipeline end manifolds, bypass and tie-in spools for the Europipe II gas pipeline, Oseberg Gas Transport, and Statpipe pipelines, operated by Gassco AS. Equinor is a technical service provider for and on behalf of Gassco AS for Europipe II and Heimdal Subsea Bypass.
Project management and engineering, including front-end engineering and design, will begin immediately at Subsea 7’s office in Stavanger, Norway. Offshore installation campaigns are scheduled for 2020, 2021, and 2022 using one of Subsea 7’s diving vessels as well as heavy-construction and light-construction vessels.
