Subsea 7, Ocean Installer Secure Askeladd Field Work

Statoil ASA announced Thursday that it will award contracts to Subsea 7 and Ocean Installer to support the development of the Askeladd field.

As part of the awards, Subsea 7 will lay a 27-mile pipeline that will tie Askeladd to the Snøhvit field. Starting immediately, the work will continue throughout 2019, with support activities for the operations based in Hammerfest, as well as other locations.

Ocean Installer will install two subsea templates in 2019, in addition to a 27-mile umbilical, a 35-kilometer-long MEG (mono-ethylene glycol) pipeline and two manifolds in 2020. The company will also fabricate and install four spools and protective structures and carry out tie-ins and ready-for-operation activities. The operations will mainly be mobilized from Hammerfest.

Both companies have previously been awarded similar contracts for the Johan Castberg development.

"The Askeladd project is being developed in a period of several key milestones for Statoil in North Norway,” Torger Rød, Statoil’s senior vice president for project development, said in a company statement.
