Chevron North Sea has awarded $840 million of contracts connected to its Alder and Rosebank projects to UK-based suppliers.
Three contracts have been awarded for the Alder project. Technip was awarded an EPIC (engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning) contract for the complete subsea system, including the main subsea manifold, subsea isolation valve manifold, 16 miles of pipe-in-pipe flow line, umbilical and tie-in spools. This work will be carried out in Aberdeen, Evanton and Newcastle.
The subsea equipment vendor contract for the Rosebank project was awarded to OneSubsea UK Limited and includes the engineering, supply, and manufacturing of subsea manifolds, subsea trees and subsea control systems. Equipment manufacturing will take place at various locations across the UK, including at their facility in Leeds.
As well as the Rosebank project work, OneSubsea UK won the contract to design, manufacture and supply two high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) vertical, subsea monobore trees and wellheads. The work will take place at its Leeds facility.
The investment provides a huge boost in jobs across engineering, design and manufacturing.
