The contracts commit Equinor to providing the Gas Import System for the Snorre Expansion project and installation services on Breidablikk - with an option for further subsea installation.

The company has also signed a letter of intent for work on the Askeladd Vest project. 

Together the contracts - including the option - are valued at around NOK 1.8 billion ($186.9 million). Scope of work includes fabrication and laying of pipelines, installation of subsea structures, control cables and hook-up and testing of systems. 

Equinor have stressed the potential for creating and sustaining jobs - with a hope to generate additional work through further sub-contracting to other companies. They have said that the awards will contribute to sustaining important workplaces in Norway, including the Orkanger spoolbase where the pipelines will be fabricated before they are reeled onto the installation vessel. 

“In a challenging period for the industry we aim to continue realizing the full potential of our NCS project portfolio. This must be carried out in close cooperation with our suppliers to ensure that we create value and activity in Norway. It will help sustain jobs in the supply industry and further develop the important competence the industry has built up,”
 said Peggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor’s Chief Procurement Officer.

“Giving three assignments to the same supplier enables efficiency gains and cost savings. It will also allow for a coordinated follow-up of the total delivery during the implementation phase. This creates value for all parties”.

Operations are expected to be carried out during 2021-2023.
