Statoil lets contract for Asgard subsea compression stations

Statoil ASA has let a contract to Technip for future intervention services on the Asgard subsea compression stations.

Asgard field, one of the largest developments on the Norwegian continental shelf, lies in the Halten Bank area 200 km off Norway in the Norwegian Sea. The Asgard subsea compression facility is the world’s first project of its kind, the companies said.

The awarded project corresponds to an extension of both the dedicated vessel and equipment, developed under the current Asgard subsea compression marine operations contract, Technip said.

The new contract also will cover the use of the vessel for other inspection, maintenance, and repair and construction work for the Asgard field or for other licenses in Statoil’s portfolio on the NCS.

Technip’s operating center in Stavanger, Norway, will manage the contract.

Statoil in June 2013 received the first piece of subsea compression equipment for developing Asgard, along with the manifold module shortly thereafter (OGJ Online, June, 13, 2013), after letting a contract to Aker Solutions in 2010 (OGJ Online, Dec. 1, 2010).
