IKM win on Aasta Hansteen

Flowline job: on Aasta Hansteen for IKM Testing

Stavanger-based oilfield services group IKM has bagged a Nkr50 million ($8 million) contract with Subsea 7 for subsea pre-commissioning of pipelines and risers for Statoil’s Aasta Hansteen project in the Norwegian Sea.

Its IKM Testing unit will carry out work including flooding, cleaning, waxing, pressure testing and dewatering on production flowlines for the Luva, Snefrid and Haklang field tie-ins as well as risers to the Aasta Hansteen spar platform.

IKM will also supply 1.6 kilometres of composite pipe that will be spooled from a vessel to a water depth of 1300 metres.

The contractor will start engineering and planning work immediately with offshore activity to be carried out in 2015 and 2016, ahead of projected start-up of the gas field in the third quarter of 2017.
