TechnipFMC has been awarded a significant engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract by Equinor for subsea tiebacks for the Halten East development on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The contract covers the manufacture and installation of flowlines and the installation of umbilicals and subsea structures. The development of Halten East consists of the Gamma, Harepus, Flyndretind, Nona, Sigrid and Natalia discoveries. Halten East is a subsea development tied back to the existing infrastructure on the Åsgard field.
Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, comments, “We are proud that we can help our longstanding partner Equinor and its consortium partners transform the economics of this project by optimising design, engineering, manufacturing, and installation.”
The award is the latest call-off on a subsea umbilicals, risers, and flowlines (SURF) framework agreement between the two companies. The contract is subject to government approval of the plan for development and operation.
Note: For TechnipFMC, a “significant” contract is between USD 75 million and USD 250 million.
