Ocean Installer has signed amendments with Statoil for umbilical marine installation at the Visund field and for riser replacement at the Troll B field. The work will be executed under the SLMP Marine Installation Contract.
“We are pleased to have secured more work for a key client like Statoil. The Norwegian Continental Shelf continues to be an area of great importance to us,” says Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise.
The work scope at the Visund field will include load out and transport of new umbilical riser, installation of new umbilical riser system including vertical anchor and mud mat for supporting umbilical termination assembly.
The content of the work includes all activities necessary for installation of the pliant wave umbilical riser.
The work scope at the Troll B field includes subsea disconnection and removal of existing riser, installation and subsea tie-in of new riser and transport and offload of existing riser at the Stord Base.
The content of the work includes all activities necessary for replacement of the riser.
Ocean Installer will utilise the state of the art large construction support vessel (CSV), Normand Vision, as the installation vessel for both projects. The water depth in both areas is approximately 330m.
The Visund field is situated in the Tampen Area, in blocks 34/7 and 34/8, approx. 140km West of Sognefjorden and 22km North-East of the Gullfaks field. Troll is located about 80km west of Bergen.
The Troll project will takes place in June 2015 and the Visund Umbilical offshore operations will take place in August 2015.
