Norwegian gas field work for Technip

By Sandy Guthrie13 October 2016

Technip Norge has been awarded an EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction and installation) contract by DEA Norge for the subsea development of the Dvalin gas field in the Norwegian Sea.

The contract includes the fabrication of smaller structures and the installation of pipelines, as well as all subsea structures and umbilical for the Dvalin field, which was previously named Zidane.

Hans-Hermann Andreae, managing director of DEA Norge, said, “The Dvalin licence has awarded contracts with a value of €530 million (NOK4.5 billion) over the past days. These contracts will create hundreds of jobs in a demanding time for the supplier industry.”

Later in the project phase, several other contracts will be awarded – among others a contract for the drilling of four production wells.

The development cost is estimated to €1.1 billion (NOK10 billion), with planned production start in 2020.

Dvalin will be developed with a four wells subsea template, which is connected to the Heidrun platform. At Heidrun, the gas will be partly processed in a new module, before the gas is transported in a new export pipeline to Polarled, going to the Nyhamna, Norway, onshore gas terminal. At Nyhamna, the gas will be processed and transported to the European market.

Offshore installation will be carried out in 2018 and 2019 by Technip’s own vessels. The project will be managed from Technip Norge’s offices at Lysaker, Norway, with pipe fabrication at the Orkanger Spoolbase.

French-based Technip claims to be a world leader in project management, engineering and construction for the energy industry, with a presence in 45 countries.
