Equinor awards subsea service deal to DeepOcean

Equinor awards subsea service deal to DeepOcean

Norway’s state-controlled energy company Equinor handed over DeepOcean a framework deal for maritime services that include subsea intervention and repair backup in offshore wind. The framework includes subsea pipelines, structures, and high-voltage cables, serving both offshore renewables and oil and gas sites. It spans four years and can be extended for another four years.

This agreement includes the Norwegian continental shelf, as well as international scheduled Equinor work and contingency work for PRSI pool members. The PRSI pool is formed up of 23 energy firms that use it to pay the costs of offshore pipeline and power cable repairs.

DeepOcean will operate the project's operations from its Haugesund headquarters, with worldwide help as needed.

"Such a long-term agreement enables us to constantly evolve working methods, collaboration models, and technologies to make offshore operations and subsea cable repair work as cost-effective as possible." "We look forward to supporting Equinor and the PRSI Pool members in the coming years," stated Olaf A. Hansen, Managing Director of DeepOcean's European division.

"DeepOcean has a 400-person engineering team that excels in solving subsea hurdles across industries," said DeepOcean's offshore renewables director, Normann Vikse.

"We are industry agnostic and bring together learnings and experiences from subsea operations spanning different types of operations and industries to develop the best alternatives for our clients."

Under the initial duties, Gassco, Equinor, and DeepOcean will conduct seabed preparations and remote hot tap tie-in operations at three distinct locations offshore Norway, a technology that involves connecting to a pressurised system (pipeline) without removing it from service.

The agreement includes planned or unplanned marine services connected to subsea high-voltage cables in offshore renewables, as well as planned or unplanned marine services employing remote-operated intervention techniques with or without the use of PRS equipment in the offshore oil and gas industry.

The existing agreement comes shortly after DeepOcean secured a contract with Equinor to provide pipeline inspection and survey scopes for the operator's North Sea pipelines.
