Shell’s UK division has awarded subsea engineering and construction company Subsea 7 with a project worth approximately USD 135m, it emerged on Monday, as part of the oil giant’s Fram oil and gas development in the Central North Sea.

The project encompasses the engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of a 4.5km pipeline bundle of approximately 44” in diameter, with integrated manifolds and tie-in structures.

Project management and engineering work will commence immediately and will be managed from Subsea 7′s offices in Aberdeen, with bundle fabrication work taking place at Subsea 7’s Wester site fabrication yard in Wick. Offshore activities utilising a variety of Subsea 7 vessels are scheduled in 2014.

“We are pleased to have been awarded these significant projects from Shell for their Fram Field development in the UK. Subsea 7 has a well-established track record of safe and successful bundle design, fabrication and installation, with over 70 bundles produced since 1978.” Said Subsea 7 Vice President UK and Canada Steph McNeill.
