Statoil awards Polarled pipelay surveillance contract to DNV GL

DNV GL, a Norwegian technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, has been awarded an offshore pipelay surveillance contract by Statoil.

The company said that the contract is for monitoring quality assurance throughout the Polarled pipeline installation campaign.

Statoil is installing the 480km long Polarled gas pipeline that will have capacity of 70 million cubic metres per day, between the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea and the Nyhamna gas processing facility in western Norway. According to the press release, the contract is valued at approximately 31 million NOK ($4 million) and is expected to run until the end of the pipeline installation, 3rd quarter 2015.

Kjell Eriksson, Regional Manager – Norway, DNV GL Oil & Gas, said: “This contract award marks the continuation of a strong collaboration between DNV GL and Statoil’s Pipeline Installation segment. Integrated subsea pipeline installation, field verification and quality surveillance have been a major service field for our Stavanger office since 1997 and this is yet another example of how we contribute with our best experience to assure efficiency and quality throughout the installation process.”

DNV GL will complement Statoil’s installation team of pipeline engineers with multi-disciplined surveyors and inspectors to follow-up the quality aspects during welding and Field Joint Coating on-board the pipelaying vessel throughout the installation campaign. Polarled and Edvard Grieg Oil Pipeline will be installed using Dutch installation contractor Allseas’ lay vessel “Solitaire”, the company said in the press release.
