TAQA awards Schlumberger EPCIC contract for UK North Sea oilfield
Schlumberger subsidiary OneSubsea wins deal from Abu Dhabi-based E&P company to provide offshore engineering and support mechanisms to Otter offshore oilfield
Oilfield services giant Schlumberger’s subsidiary company OneSubsea has announced the award of an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract for a subsea multiphase boosting system by Abu Dhabi-based TAQA for the Otter oilfield in the UK North Sea.
Through the EPCIC contract, OneSubsea and its Subsea Integration Alliance partner, Subsea 7, will supply and install a subsea multiphase boosting system including topside and subsea controls, as well as associated life-of-field services.
The project will result in a 30km subsea tieback to the TAQA-operated North Cormorant platform. This will be the longest subsea multiphase boosting tieback in the UK North Sea.
“This fit-for-purpose subsea boosting system will improve TAQA’s ultimate recovery from an existing asset, through a capital-efficient long tieback,” Mike Garding, president - OneSubsea, Schlumberger, was quoted as saying in a press release. “We look forward to working with TAQA to maximise the full value of the Otter field.”
OneSubsea and Subsea 7 will deliver a turnkey integrated project from design through supply, installation and commissioning.
