Subsea 7 dives in for Jacky

Subsea 7 has landed a US $22 million contract from Ithaca Energy for work to tie back the new Jacky platform to the Beatrice Alpha platform in the UK North Sea.

Subsea 7 is to provide project management, fabrication, installation and offshore pre-commissioning of a 10.5km production and water injection pipeline and power cable tie-back of the new Jacky platform to the Beatrice Alpha platform.

It will also install a 1km production and water injection pipeline tie-back of the Beatrice Bravo platform to a mid-line manifold structure.

The offshore installation work is due to take place in late 2008 and will be carried out by the Seven Navica pipelay vessel assisted by the Seven Sisters construction vessel and Rockwater 1 dive support vessel.

The project will be managed and engineered from Subsea 7’s offices in Aberdeen with pipeline fabrication being undertaken at the company’s North Sea spoolbase at Vigra in Norway.

Robin Davies, Subsea 7’s North Sea Vice-President stated, “We are particularly delighted with this award as we have been able to secure work with Ithaca Energy on their first North Sea construction project. This award further consolidates the capabilities of Subsea 7 in undertaking fast track projects. We look forward to a safe and successful completion of this pipelay project and to working with Ithaca Energy on future projects.”
