UK supermajor BP has awarded Norway’s Subsea 7 a sizeable contract for the so-called TOPR shallow-water project offshore Trinidad & Tobago.
The project covers the installation of a 12-inch pipeline running 96 kilometres in water depths of up to 280 feet, associated shore approach and diver tie-in spools.
According to Subsea 7, front-end engineering and design studies are currently underway and the engineering, procurement, construction and installation scope is scheduled to begin this month.
Subsea 7 defines a sizeable contract as being between $50 million and $150 million.
“We are honoured to have been selected for the fast-track delivery of the TOPR project and we look forward to continuing our collaborative relationship with BP,” said Subsea 7 US vice president Craig Broussard.
Subsea 7 added that project management and engineering will take place at the company’s office in Houston, Texas.
