Technip was awarded a contract by Marathon Oil Norge AS for on-going expansion of the subsea drill centres at Kneler B and Volund located in the Alvheim area in the North Sea. The water depths in the area is around 120 meters, and the subsea work will be performed by use of remotely-operated vehicules as well as by divers. The contract includes engineering, fabrication, installation and diving tie-ins of pipeline spools, including protection covers and installation of a manifold.
Technip’s operating center in Stavanger, Norway will execute the contract. The offshore construction work will take place in 2012 and 2013. The Skandi Arctic, a diving support vessel from Technip’s fleet, will be used for the offshore campaigns.
