HOUSTON, July 18 -- Norsk Hydro AS has awarded Coflexip Stena Offshore Norge AS a letter of intent for an 80 million euro ($68.4 million) engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract for a development in the North Sea.

Fram Vest field is 20 km north of the Troll C platform in 1,180 ft of water.

Under the proposed contract, Coflexip Stena would design, procure, fabricate, and install two 10-in. flexible risers, one multibore riser, and one dynamic service umbilical riser, each 800 m, as well as two rigid 12-in. and 13-in. flowlines for a total length of 50 km.

It would also install 25 km of static service umbilicals.
