GE Contracted For Subsea Project
Complete subsea system to support Statoil’s Snøhvit Field carbon dioxide injection project
GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a US$147 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Statoil. Under the contract, GE will supply subsea production and injection equipment for Statoil’s Snøhvit carbon dioxide (CO2) injection project, designed to provide a robust CO2 solution.
For the project, GE will supply the Norwegian company with a subsea system enabling both injection and production wells.
The new CO2 injection facilities have been designed to accommodate Statoil’s need for additional injection capacity over the lifetime of the field.
This delivery follows GE’s previously provided subsea production system to Statoil for the company’s initial production activities in the Snøhvit field.
Delivery of the equipment will take place during the second quarter of 2015. GE will manufacture the trees at its Aberdeen facility and the control systems at the company’s Nailsea, U.K., facility. Meanwhile, the subsea template and manifold components will be built in Norway. GE will manage the EPC project from its Bristol, U.K., offices.
