Subsea 7 to Conduct Underwater Operations on Norwegian Ekofisk Field
ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS (CoPSAS) has received consent to carry out manned underwater operations in connection with installation of the Ekofisk 2/4 VB facility.
The consent for manned underwater operations covers work in connection with the 2/4 VB SSWI project, where CoPSAS is installing a new subsea facility – 2/4 VB – for water injection on the Ekofisk field.
The manned underwater operations will mainly consist of installing a T pipe segment on the existing water pipeline. The T pipe segment will be joined using hyperbaric welding.
The work has a planned duration of 20 days, with start-up during the first half of August.
The work will be performed by Subsea 7, with the DSV Seven Havila vessel.
