Offshore accommodation rig provider Prosafe has been awarded a contract by ConocoPhillips to provide accommodation support using either the Safe Boreas or Safe Zephyrus flotel on the Ekofisk field located offshore Norway.
This is related to the tie-in of the Tommeliten Alpha field development, Prosafe explained on Monday.
Prosafe also said that the firm duration of the contract is 90 days, starting in 2Q 2022, with an option of up to 60 days.
The total value of the contract, excluding the option period, is approximately $13.6 million.
Prosafe noted that the contract has cancellation charges that apply if the Tommeliten Alpha plan for development and operation (PDO) is not approved by Norwegian authorities.
Jesper Kragh Andresen, CEO of Prosafe said: “Prosafe is pleased to have been awarded a contract in 2022 for operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf”.
Tommeliten Alpha is a discovery in the southern part of the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. It is situated approximately 25 kilometres southwest of the Ekofisk field.
The water depth is approximately 75 meters. The field was discovered in 1977. The reservoir contains a gas condensate fluid and lies at a depth of approximately 3,000 meters.
ConocoPhillips has already awarded a contract for the Tommeliten Alpha subsea production system to Aker Solutions.
The scope of work includes 10 vertical subsea trees, two manifolds, wellheads, satellite structures, control systems as well as tie-in equipment.
In addition to subsea, Aker Solutions also secured a FEED contract for modifications on the Ekofisk installations to integrate the Tommeliten Alpha discovery.
