Fossil Energy – Gas Export Riser
DeepOcean has been awarded a contract by Equinor to support the Troll B – Increased Gas Export project, located in the northern part of the North Sea.
The Troll B– Increased Gas Export project involves a replacement of the current 15” gas export riser with a new 13” gas export riser at the Troll B platform.
DeepOcean’s contract scope includes engineering, transportation and installation of the gas export riser, subsea tie-ins and pre-commissioning support.
“We believe this award recognizes our solid performance on previous riser replacement jobs for Equinor. We look forward to collaborating with Equinor to ensure that the Troll B project too is successfully and safely executed,” says Rolf Ivar Sørdal, Commercial Director Europe.
Throughout the past years, DeepOcean has successfully performed similar riser replacement operations, including complex marine operations, at several Equinor-operated fields including Njord, Kristin, Troll C and Åsgard. In addition, DeepOcean recently completed a similar riser replacement job at the Snorrefield.
Project management and engineering for the Troll B riser replacement will commence immediately at DeepOcean’s office in Stavanger with further support from the company’s Haugesund office in Norway. Offshore operations are planned to take place in 2024 utilizing the Edda Freya installation vessel, which is on charter to DeepOcean.
