Oilfield services firm Subsea 7 reported late Monday that it has established a new office in Tromsø, northern Norway.
Subsea 7 said the move follows its award earlier this year for the pipelay and subsea installation contract for Statoil's Aasta Hansteen project. The firm said it is seeing increasing activity in the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea, and that with an office in Tromsø it will have a solid platform to properly execute projects and collaborate with partners in northern Norway.
Subsea 7 Vice President for Norway Stuart Fitzgerald commented in a company statement:
"Tromsø was selected after a detailed evaluation process. This is not just about the development of the Aasta Hansteen field, but is part of our overall long-term commitment to northern Norway. We are looking forward to establishing the new office and to starting the recruitment process."
