Statoil awards contracts

Statoil has awarded contracts for the Kristin and Mikkel gas and condensate fields in the Norwegian Sea.
The Kristin contracts are worth around NOK 85 million. Saipem UK has won the contract for the installation of subsea templates, while Baker Oil Tools will supply completion equipment. In the course of this spring and summer, contracts will also be awarded for the construction of accommodation modules and steel hull for the floating production platform on the field, which will produce from 12 subsea wells. The total investment for the development of the Kristin field is estimated at NOK 17 billion.
The two Mikkel are worth a total of NOK 122 million. Halliburton will carry out trenching for the laying of control cables, glycol lines and an 18-inch gas transport pipeline. Boskalis Offshore has been awarded the contract for gravel dumping along the same route. Project manager Hans Kristiansen reports that there is now only one contract outstanding for the Mikkel project. To be awarded this spring, it covers the testing of the subsea equipment. Mikkel is being developed with a seabed production system and a pipeline for the transport of gas from the Midgard structure 35km further north. The well flow from Midgard will be piped to the Šsgard B platform. Plans call for the Mikkel field to come on stream on 1 October 2003. The licensees in the field are Statoil, ExxonMobil, Norsk Hydro and Agip.
