UK oilfield services firm Subsea 7 announced Wednesday that it has won its largest-ever UK EPIC (engineering, procurement, installation and construction) contract. The deal, with Premier Oil UK in support of its Catcher Area development, is valued in excess of $460 million.
Subsea 7 said the contract covers the provision of project management, engineering, procurement, construction, fabrication and installation of Catcher's subsea facilities. The scope of the work includes: three pipeline bundles; a riser system for the Catcher floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel; and installation of a 10-inch, 37-mile gas export/import pipeline.
Subsea 7's office in Aberdeen, Scotland will undertake the engineering and project management work, with fabrication work to take place at the company's Wick and Leith facilities, also in Scotland. Offshore activities that will use a number of the firm's vessels will begin in 2015.
Subsea 7 Vice President for UK and Canada Phil Simons commented in a company statement:
"We are extremely pleased to be awarded this major EPIC contract, which is of significant importance for both Subsea 7 and Premier. This demonstrates the versatility, dependability and economic benefit of our 'Bundle' solution to our clients in a mature basin such as the UK Continental Shelf."
Premier Oil UK Business Unit Manager Mike Skitmore added: "We are confident that Subsea 7 has the engineering and project management expertise to deliver a timely and robust subsea solution for our Catcher project and look forward to working with them on this development."
