Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract by Nexen as part of the Buzzard Phase 2 Project, located about 55 km (34 miles) off the northeast coast of Scotland, the company said Aug. 3.
Subsea 7’s contract scope includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a 5-km (3-mile) pipeline bundle along with associated well and platform tie-ins, and provision of a heavy lift vessel for transport and installation of a new topside module.
Project management and detailed engineering has commenced at Subsea 7’s office in Aberdeen. The pipeline bundle will be fabricated at Subsea 7’s Wester site near Wick, with technical support from Subsea 7’s specialist pipeline group in Glasgow. Project management and engineering for the heavy lift work scope will be conducted from Seaway Heavy Lifting’s office in Zoetermeer in the Netherlands.
The offshore activities will mainly take place in 2020.
“Subsea 7 has a long established reputation of close collaboration with clients and supply chain partners to seek out innovative and value-adding ways of working,” Jonathan Tame, Subsea 7’s vice president U.K. & Canada, said. “This award represents the ideal opportunity to demonstrate this and to continue our long history of successful project delivery to Nexen.”
Today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree is Nick Vandivere, CEO of ThoughtTrace which is a Houston-based software company using AI and machine learning to streamline operations for the energy industry.
The partnership with Proserv Group establishes a framework for a bundled offering that will provide a compelling value proposition for Dril-Quip’s subsea customers, CEO Blake DeBerry says.
Succeeding Jean Cahuzac, who had served as CEO of Subsea 7 since 2008, is the offshore energy services company’s COO, John Evans.
