Norway: Ocean Installer Hires EAB for Draugen Field Manifold

Norway’s Ocean Installer was in April awarded a contract for EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation) services in the context of A/S Norske Shell’s further development of the Draugen field. The contract value is estimated at approximately USD 154 million.

In the process of securing subcontractors, Ocean Installer has now contracted EAB to design and deliver a Tee Manifold to be installed summer 2013. The contract includes procurement of all valves, piping and structural steel. Estimated total weight of the Tee Manifold is 110 tons. A/S Norske Shell will supply the Aker subsea hubs and a Multi Phase flow meter as CPI.

“The securing of subcontractors for our work on the Draugen field is progressing according to plan, and we are happy to have signed such a merited subcontractor”, says Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.

Draugen is an oil field in the Norwegian Sea , situated about 140 kilometres from Kristiansund, Norway, with a sea depth of 250 metres (800 ft). First oil started flowing in 1993, and the platform will also undergo major upgrading to ensure a significant service life extension. In order to maintain the platform’s integrity, to increase production and to make further development possible, a range of modifications to the Draugen platform are planned in the years to come.
