Subsea 7 receives offshore contract

Aker BP has awarded Subsea 7 a major contract for the Hod Field Development Project, located in the North Sea.

Aker BP’s redevelopment concept includes a new wellhead platform (Hod B) tied back to its Valhall Field Centre with rigid pipelines and an umbilical.

Subsea 7’s project scope includes the engineering, procurement, construction and installation for the pipelines, umbilicals and tie-ins using key vessels from its modern fleet.

The production pipeline is a pipe-in-pipe design that will include a world first application of mechanically lined pipe based on GluBi® technology from BUTTING – a glue-bonded, mechanically lined product that can be installed by the real-lay process without using inner pressure or increasing the wall thickness of the corrosion-resistant alloy liner.

Subsea 7 will commence project management and engineering immediately from its offices in Stavanger, Norway, while fabrication of the pipelines will take place at the company’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway and the offshore operations will occur throughout 2020 and 2021.

Subsea 7 Vice President Norway Monica Bjørkmann said the company is very pleased with the award by Aker BP, through the Aker BP Subsea Alliance.

“It acknowledges Subsea 7 as a key partner in the delivery of pioneering technology, transforming the economics of field development,” said Ms Bjørkmann.

“We look forward to continuing our alliance with Aker BP for the Hod Field Development, with safety, reliability and quality at the forefront throughout.”
