Subsea 7 Wins Pipeline Installation Work

Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract for subsea pipeline installation services for ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS. The contract, valued in the region of US $18M, is for the FTP bypass project in the Ekofisk field.

The work scope will comprise engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction installation and pre-commission of a 2814 meter pipeline bundle which will be towed out from Subsea 7's spool base in Wick, Scotland to the Ekofisk field offshore Norway.

Engineering work for the project is due to commence immediately and will be undertaken by a group from Subsea 7's team of 110 engineers based at Tananger in Norway. Fabrication works to include welding and coatings will be undertaken at Subsea 7's yard at Wick, Scotland. Pre-lay surveys along the proposed route are scheduled for early 2006, with bundle fabrication and installation utilizing one of Subsea 7's construction support vessels due to take place in the second quarter of 2006.
