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.
