Subsea 7 has been awarded a sizeable contract by Centrica for the Oda field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The Oda oil field, previously called Butch, was discovered in 2011 in the southern part of the Norwegian North Sea, approximately 14 kilometers east of the Ula field.
As the operator, Centrica submitted the plan for the Oda field Development and Operation to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy at the end of November 2016.
The subsea engineering firm said on Thursday that the contract scope comprises its expertise and capabilities in engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) including the production pipeline, water injection line, umbilical and related subsea services.
Project management and engineering will start immediately from Subsea 7’s office in Stavanger, Norway, with offshore operations scheduled to start in 2018.
Phil Simons, Vice President North Sea & Canada, said: “The strategic partnership with Centrica allows the parties to work closely together to optimize the project delivery. This contract award shows that this way of working with our clients provides cost effective and optimized technical solutions, and earlier delivery of projects.”
A sizeable contract is between $50 million and $150 million.
