Plans for the Hod development were submitted by Aker BP to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy last week. It’s thought that the Hod holds around 40 million barrels of oil equivalent. Investment in the development will total $600 million and create 5,000 FTEs for experienced workers.

Subsea 7 will deliver EPCI for pipelines, umbilicals and tie-ins using key vessels from their fleet. This will connect to a new wellhead platform (Hod B), which is to be delivered by Kvaerner.

Project management and engineering will commence immediately at Subsea 7’s offices in Stavanger, Norway and will be followed by pipeline fabrication at the company’s spoolbase at Vigra, Norway. The production pipeline is a pipe-in-pipe design that will include the world’s first application of mechanically lined pipe based on GluBi technology from Butting. 

Offshore operations are expected to commence later this year. 

“Subsea 7 is very pleased with this award by Aker BP, through the Aker BP Subsea Alliance,” said Monica Bjørkmann, vice president for Subsea 7 Norway.

“It acknowledges Subsea 7 as a key partner in the delivery of pioneering technology, transforming the economics of field development."

The project is thought to be worth between $50 and $150 million.
