Norwegian subsea contractor Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract for subsea power cable installation for the CNOOC Liuhua 16-2 oil field development in the South China Sea.

Ocean Installer said on Tuesday that the work scope encompasses project management, engineering, transportation, and installation as well as various other support functions to the client’s engineering team.

This is the company’s second subsea job in China, and Ocean Installer will conduct the work as a subcontractor to COOEC Subsea Technology, which is responsible for the deepwater SURF EPCI scope towards end-client CNOOC.

According to Ocean Installer, work has already begun, with installation season in the summer of 2020 utilizing Ocean Yield’s ultra-deepwater multipurpose, flex-lay subsea construction vessel Connector.

Odd Strømsnes, CEO of Ocean Installer, said: “Ocean Installer’s global subsea construction knowledge and expertise will be used to complement our client’s capability to ensure overall success for the project, and we believe this type of cooperation will be important going forward in what is a new geographic market adding to our strong backlog of projects to be executed over the next years.”

The company stated that the project would be managed in close cooperation with the COOEC team in Shenzhen. Ocean Installer’s project management and engineering team will be based in Houston and will be supported by its main office in Stavanger, Norway.

The CNOOC-operated Liuhua 16-2 oilfields development project is a joint oilfield development project, covering the Liuhua 16-2, 20-2, and 21-2 fields located offshore China in the South China Sea, at water depths ranging from 380 to 430 meters.
