Technip awarded important contract by Statoil for subsea project related to the Edvard Grieg field
Statoil has made a call-off for the framework contract Technip has with Statoil for diving services. The work will be performed in connection with the future Edvard Grieg Oil Pipeline as well as Utsira high gas pipeline.
The project will help connect the oil pipeline from the Edvard Grieg platform to the existing Grane oil export pipeline, towards the Sture terminal. Moreover, the Utsira high gas pipeline will be connected from the Edvard Grieg platform to the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) pipeline.
Technip's operating center in Stavanger, Norway will execute the project together with the Group's operating center in Haugesund, Norway, which will be in charge of preparing and operating the Pipeline Repair System (PRS)* equipment. The contract is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2015. The offshore campaigns will happen in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and will utilize state-of-the-art diving support and construction vessels from Technip's fleet.
