Subsea 7 has been awarded a substantial contract by Statoil for the provision of subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Valued between US$150 million to US$300 million, the contract involves the provision of a life-of-field support vessel for five years, with options for extensions.
The life-of-field support vessel, complete with work class and observation class remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) and a module-handling support system, must be capable of performing standard inspections, light construction and scale squeeze operations, module handling and Christmas tree installation.
Offshore activities will begin in January using Subsea 7’s Seven Viking.
Project management and engineering support will be executed from i-Tech Services’ office in Stavanger, Norway.
