Subsea services firm EMAS AMC reported Thursday that it has been awarded a $75-million contract from Statoil for its Smørbukk South extension project in the Norwegian Sea.
The contract will see EMAS AMC supply subsea engineering, procurement and offshore construction services to the project. This will include the installation of flexible flowlines, tie-in spools, manifolds and umbilicals, as well as associated abandonment and removal activities. The extension will be developed with a new subsea template connected to existing infrastructure in the area.
Offshore activities will start in the second quarter of 2014, with the project being expected to last through 2015.
EMAS Managing Director Lionel Lee commented in a statement:
"We have been investing heavily in building up our global engineering expertise as well as technologically advanced and game-changing assets. This has borne fruit and I am extremely pleased with this latest win by EMAS AMC. It demonstrates an ever growing confidence in our project execution capabilities and validates EMAS."
Discovered in 1985, the Smørbukk South Extension holds estimated recoverable reserves of 16.5 million barrels of oil equivalent.
