TechnipFMC lands Norwegian EPCI contract

UK engineering group TechnipFMC said January 13 it was awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for Equinor’s Smorbukk Nord development in the Norwegian Sea.

The contract is for developing a high pressure, high temperature subsea production system and equipment for a brownfield tieback, following the completion of front end engineering and design work in 2021.

"Our ability to deliver this optimised solution for Equinor is possible due to our close collaboration with the client, portfolio of subsea equipment, and integrated execution model," TechnipFMC's president for subsea, Jonathan Landes, commented. “We’re delighted to be once again delivering an iEPCI project for Equinor.”

TechnipFMC will deploy a battery hybrid vessel for the project, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Smorbukk Nord is located at Equinor's Asgard oil and gas field on the Norwegian shelf, where TechnipFMC has a large installed base.
