Subsea 7 Bags Largest Ever SURF Contract in Norway

Subsea 7 S.A.  today announced the award of a subsea, umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) contract valued at approximately $800 million from Total E&P Norge AS for the development of the gas field Martin Linge, located 180 km west of Bergen in the North Sea.

The contract comprises engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPIC) of the complete Subsea facilities on the field including: a 160 km power cable from the Martin Linge platform to Kollsnes; a 70 km export pipeline and associated valve structures, umbilical and spools for the gas export system; a 55 km fibre optic cable; and a 3 km pipeline and riser system from the Martin Linge platform to the floating storage unit. The contract also includes transport and installation of the mooring system for the floating storage unit.

Under the terms of this contract Subsea 7 will deploy various pipelay, construction, diving, ploughing, trenching and survey vessels during the offshore period. The recently delivered Seven Borealis (photo), which provides a significant increase in our delivery capability to North Sea customers, will install the gas export pipeline on the project.

Engineering and project management will commence immediately at Subsea 7’s Stavanger office with offshore operations due to commence in the spring of 2014. The duration of the contract is estimated at four years.

Stuart Fitzgerald, Vice President Subsea 7 Norway said:

“We are delighted with this very important award from Total, which highlights the quality of our project management and engineering expertise, the breadth of our vessel fleet, the depth of our onshore organisation, and our strong track record as an EPIC contractor. This project is the largest SURF contract ever awarded on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, and as such represents a step change for our sector in Norway.”
