Tampnet to connect Johan Sverdrup to North Sea subsea fiber infrastructure

Tampnet, a provider of telecommunication infrastructure and services for the offshore o&g industry, has been awarded a contract by Statoil for connecting the Johan Sverdrup field to its existing 2,500 kilometers subsea fiber infrastructure in the North Sea.

Tampnet said last week that the contract and turn-key project would optimize and strengthen the telecommunication infrastructure for this field development.

The company added that it has several potential connection points available for future field developments throughout the North Sea. Also, continued expansion of the infrastructure adds to the coverage and redundancy of the network which will, according to the company, be beneficial to existing oil fields.

Per Helge Svensson, Tampnet’s CEO, said: “Statoil is at the forefront of the industry in terms of applying technology to improve safety, efficiency, and welfare. Once again they show that subsea fiber to their new offshore installations is regarded as a key building block in their development.

“The connection of the Johan Sverdrup field into our existing infrastructure contributes to the robustness and longevity of the network, Norway’s international connectivity in general, and the attractiveness of Scandinavian data centers in the international market.”

Johan Sverdrup is dubbed as the largest offshore development in the past three decades. The Statoil-operated field is located in the North Sea around 155 kilometers west of Karmøy in Rogaland county.

Phase one of Johan Sverdrup consists of four bridge-linked platforms, in addition to three subsea water injection templates. The planned production capacity of the first phase is 315 000 to 380 000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Phase two builds on this infrastructure, adding another processing platform to the field center. Overall this will result in a processing capacity of 660,000 barrels of oil per day.
