Technip, a France-based oilfield services provider, has been awarded by Marathon Oil Norge AS an engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) contract, worth above USD 380 million, for the Bøyla field development.
The field is located in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, approximately 225 kilometers West of Stavanger, Norway, at a water depth of 120 meters. The contract includes all activities necessary to complete the construction of the subsea system for the Bøyla field development and connect it to the existing Alvheim subsea facilities, located 28 kilometers away.
The contract covers fabrication and reeled installation of a pipe-in-pipe production flowline, a plastic lined water injection flowline and a gas lift flowline, fabrication and installation of rigid spools, manufacturing and installation of flexible jumpers and umbilicals, tie-in by divers, trenching, rockdumping, and ready for operation activities.
Technip’s operating center in Oslo, Norway, will execute the contract. Offshore construction will take place in 2014 with several vessels from Technip’s fleet, including the Deep Energy and the Skandi Arctic.
On June 4, Marathon Oil and its partners ConocoPhillips and Lundin Petroleum submitted the plan for development and operation (PDO) of the Bøyla field to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. The Bøyla development is expected to begin production during the fourth quarter of 2014.
