OneSubsea, a subsidiary of Shlumberger company has received an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract from Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) for Otter Field in the UK North Sea.
As per the contract, OneSubsea and its Subsea Integration Alliance Partner, Subsea 7 will supply and install a subsea multipurpose boosting system that includes topside and subsea controls along with associated life-of-field services.
The project will see a 30km subsea tieback to TAQA-operated North Cormorant platform, which is being considered as the longest subsea multipurpose boosting tieback in the UK North Sea.

“We look forward to working with TAQA to maximize the full value of the Otter field.”
