Statoil signed an agreement with FMC Technologies for the manufacture and supply of a workover system to support the Statfjord field in the North Sea.
Statoil will use the workover system to perform intervention activities on their subsea wells in order to increase performance and enhance oil recovery on the aging field. This will be the first standardized workover system supplied to Statoil by FMC.
The system is designed to support Statoil's rig scheduling program and its standardized subsea equipment to allow rig time to be efficiently allocated, reducing costs and enhancing productivity, said Tore Halvorsen, FMC's Senior Vice President of Global Subsea Production Systems. The Statfjord area lies on the border between the Norwegian and British sectors in the northern part of the North Sea.
