BERGEN -- DOF Subsea Norway, a subsea solutions provider, has been awarded a contract by Teekay Petrojarl Production in Norway for a new-build FPSO.
The scope of work includes mooring pre-installation, tow-out and hook-up work for Teekay’s new FPSO, which will be installed on the BG-operated Knarr field in the Norwegian North Sea. DOF will mobilize its Skandi Skolten vessel for this project, with six further vessels from its global fleet to be used in support.
The project will be completed in three phases, the first of which will see the pre-installation of the complete mooring system, consisting of 12 mooring lines, in 2013. DOF has already begun the planning, engineering and offshore management.
The FPSO will be kept at a fjord on the West Coast of Norway, when it is delivered in 2014, until the field is ready for the FPSO to be installed later in the year, at which time it will be towed out to location and connected to the pre-laid mooring system.
