DEA Norge has awarded an EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) contract to Technip Norge AS for the smaller structures and pipelines, as well as the subsea installation work, of the Dvalin development in the Norwegian Sea.
The contract includes the fabrication of smaller structures, the 12/16-inch pipe-in-pipe production flowline, the 12-inch gas export pipeline and the installation of pipelines as well as all subsea structures and umbilical for the Dvalin field.
“This contract is another major element for the Dvalin field development. We will now start to collaborate closely on the details with all companies we have on board, to continue the efficient work on the project”, said Hans-Hermann Andreae, managing director of DEA Norge.
“The Dvalin license has awarded contracts with a value of 4.5 billion NOK ($588 million) over the past days. These contracts will create hundreds of jobs in a demanding time for the supplier industry”, he added.
Dvalin’s development cost is estimated to total $1.2 billion, with a planned production start in 2020. Dvalin will be developed with a four-well subsea template, which is connected to the Heidrun platform. At Heidrun, the gas will be partly processed in a new module, before the gas is transported in a new export pipeline to Polarled, going to the Nyhamna onshore gas terminal. At Nyhamna, the gas will be processed and transported to the European market.
Recoverable reserves of the Dvalin field are estimated to around 18.2 billion cubic metres of gas and 0.4 million cubic metres of condensate. The field is located in PL435, across blocks 6507/7/9 and 6507/8 in the Norwegian Sea.
