Norsk Hydro Awards Tune A Phase 2 to Subsea 7

Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract from Norsk Hydro for the Tune A Phase 2 development. Subsea 7 was awarded the Oseberg Vestflanken Project in April this year and the addition of Tune will increase the previously awarded contract value of US $40M by an additional US $18m.

The scope of work for the Tune A Phase 2 includes procurement and installation of a 3.2 km, 8” flexible flowline and a service umbilical of same distance. The scope also includes tie ins and the provision of a permanent protection for the flowlines/umbilicals by means of trenching. The work will be performed in the latter part of summer 2005 after the completion of the Oseberg Vestflanken Project.

The Tune development is located in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea and the work will be undertaken by Subsea 7’s Stavanger office using the same project team already engaged on Oseberg Vestflanken.
