Statoil and partners have decided to develop the Snefrid Nord gas discovery near the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea.
The discovery, scheduled to come on stream in late 2019, will be tied back to Aasta Hansteen.
The authorities therefore received a supplement to the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) of the Aasta Hansteen field describing the Snefrid Nord development.
Aker Solutions, the supplier of subsea equipment for the Aasta Hansteen development, will also deliver the single-slot subsea template, a suction anchor and umbilicals for the Snefrid Nord development.
The subsea template and suction anchor mooring it to the seabed will be delivered by Aker Solutions at Sandnessjøen.
“We are pleased to see that Snefrid Nord generates spin-offs and activities at Helgelandskysten,” says Torolf Christensen, project director for Snefrid Nord and Aasta Hanste
The umbilicals will be delivered by Aker Solutions in Moss.
Subsea 7 will deliver flowlines and spools in addition to performing all subsea installations. They are also the supplier for Aasta Hansteen, and by using the same supplier for both projects Statoil expects to capture synergies.
