Neptune Energy awards EPCIC contracts for subsea tie-backs to Gjøa

11/06/2019

Neptune Energy today announced Rosenberg WorleyParsons has been awarded contracts for modifications on the Neptune operated Gjøa semi-submersible platform.

The Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation & Commissioning (EPCIC) contracts cover topside modifications to be carried out on the Gjøa platform as part of the Duva and Gjøa P1 projects. The contracts are awarded under the existing Gjøa topside modification frame agreement signed with Rosenberg WorleyParsons in 2018. Neptune has awarded the call-offs on behalf of the Duva and Gjøa field licenses.

Neptune Energy Norge’s Managing Director Odin Estensen said: “We are pleased to award these contracts to Rosenberg WorleyParsons under the existing frame agreement. This work is important in order to maintain the fast-track schedule for developing Duva and Gjøa P1 as subsea tie-backs to Gjøa. The project demonstrates our commitment to pursuing growth opportunities and further strengthens Gjøa’s position as a hub for the wider area.”

The modification contracts will last until 2021 and the services will be led and executed by Rosenberg WorleyParsons in Stavanger.
