Ocean Installer Secures Jumper Replacement Work from Statoil



Ocean Installer announced Wednesday that it will undertake flexible jumper replacement operations for Statoil at the Vigdis field.

The work is being performed as part of an option under an amendment to a previously awarded SLMP Marine Installation contract. The SLMP amendment was signed in December 2015 and covers the replacement of a flexible jumper at the Vigdis field as well as project management, engineering and marine operations.

Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise said in a company statement:

“We are happy to see that Statoil continues to make use of options inherent to existing contracts, further strengthening our cooperation. In the current market this type of work is important to maintain a steady activity level and it proves that an unwavering focus on delivering in existing projects pays off.”

Project preparations started in February and offshore work will take place in June, according to an Ocean Installer statement. Vigdis is located in block 34/7 in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea and came on stream in 1997.
