Var Energi, Equinor, Gassco and Aker BP have received consent to perform manned underwater operations (MUO) in 2021.

Equinor has signed framework agreements with TechnipFMC (Technip Norge AS) and Subsea 7 Norway AS (Subsea 7) for the performance of manned underwater operations in 2021. Through a pool agreement with Equinor, Gassco and Var Energi AS will also be able to use the framework agreements. For Var Energi, this applies to the Balder, Ringhorne and Goliat fields.

Manned underwater operations under the framework agreement with TechnipFMC may be performed using the DSV Deep Arctic, DSV Deep Explorer and LDC Seahunter diving vessels.

Operations under the framework agreement with Subsea 7 may be performed using the DSV Seven Falcon and DSV Seven Atlantic diving support vessels and the LDC Seven Spray light diving craft.

The consents include planned operations as well as undefined operational and project tasks that may be required during the period and that relate to the companies’ production licences and pipeline systems. This also includes pipelines under Norwegian jurisdiction on foreign continental shelves. The PSA is to be informed in advance should such needs arise.

The companies’ framework agreements also cover repair readiness for subsea installations and pipelines. The PSA is to be informed in advance if emergency situations arise which then require manned underwater operations.

Aker BP has signed a framework agreement with Subsea 7 for the performance of MUO. Operations under this framework agreement may be performed using the DSV Seven Falcon and DSV Seven Atlantic diving support vessels.

We have granted the companies consent for manned underwater operations on the basis of information provided as part of the processing of the consent applications.
