BERGEN, Norway -- Reef Subsea Integrated Projects (RSIP) has secured a multi-million dollar contract with Technip Norge AS for trenching services on the Bøyla Development Project in the North Sea.
RSIP will provide the Q1000 jet trencher, along with a team of experienced operators, to conduct trenching services in connection with the Bøyla project located 225 km west of Stavanger, Norway, at a water depth of 120 m. RSIP will also provide all of the associated engineering, procedures and onshore and offshore project management necessary to complete the trenching workscope, which will take place in 2014.
