Norway’s Equinor and Ocean Installer have signed a contract that covers the FPSO mooring installation, tow out and hook-up of the Johan Castberg FPSO in the Barents Sea.

Equinor-operated Johan Castberg is one of the largest subsea field developments on the Norwegian continental shelf. The project includes Skrugard, Havis and Drivis, which lies about 240 kilometers from Hammerfest and about 100 kilometers north of Snøhvit. The water depth is between 360 and 405 meters.

Ocean Installer said on Tuesday that its new scope was extensive and would be carried out in combination with the marine operations contract Ocean Installer was awarded in February 2018.

“This is Ocean Installer’s first FPSO tow out and we sincerely appreciate the trust Equinor shows in our mooring capabilities by awarding us yet another large scope, “said Olav Haugland, CEO of Ocean Installer.

Ocean Installer will start engineering work immediately and the project will continue until the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit begins to produce in 2022. The offshore mooring pre-installation work will be carried out in 2020. The FPSO tow out and hook-up scope will be executed in 2022 and will be supported by Global Maritime.

Ocean Installer’s existing marine operations project covers scope to be carried out in all offshore seasons from 2019-2022. The project will be executed by Ocean Installer’s headquarters in Stavanger.

The Johan Castberg (formerly Skrugard) field is situated approximately 100 kilometers north of the Snøhvit-field in the Barents Sea. The field will be developed with an FPSO+ production vessel with additional subsea solutions.
