Statoil awards contract for Sleipner modifications in North Sea

By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, Nov. 1 -- Norway's Statoil ASA awarded ABB Group of Zurich a $23 million contract to modify the Sleipner A platform in the North Sea.

The modifications will connect Sleipner A to oil and gas recovered from Sigyn field. ABB also will perform engineering, construction, and installation of a deck structure.

It will prepare and install the pipeline tie-in to Sleipner A and perform other modification work during a planned platform shutdown in 2002. ExxonMobil Corp. operates Sigyn field, a new development 12 km southeast of Sleipner A. The field is being developed subsea. Oil and gas production will be moved to Sleipner A for processing and transportation to shore.

ABB has begun work on the project, which is due for completion in March 2003.

Sleipner is on blocks 15/6 and 15/9 in the Norwegian sector.
