Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Technip Umbilicals Ltd, has signed a contract with Statoil ASA to provide the umbilical to the Oseberg Vestflanken 2 field offshore Norway. This field is located 8 km North West of the Oseberg field center at block 30/9-30/6 on the Norwegian continental shelf. It is at water depths of 100 m.
The contract covers project management, engineering and manufacture of over 9 km of static steel tube umbilical. The umbilical includes a large bore integrated service line and multiple power cables.
Technip Umbilicals’ facility in Newcastle, UK, will manufacture the project, which is scheduled to be completed during 1H17.
Sarah Cridland, Managing Director of Technip Umbilicals, said: “As a company we have invested significantly in our Newcastle facility and it is encouraging to see the award of contracts, such as Oseberg, from this. This is an extremely important recognition to Technip Umbilicals from Statoil.”
