An EPC option agreement for subsea production system has also been signed with OneSubsea, including framework agreements for subsea operations services and subsea add-ons.

Last year Statoil signed a Master Service Agreement and an EPC contract including options for EPC project with FMC Kongsberg Subsea AS for Johan Sverdrup.
 
“In light of the current challenges the industry is facing the suppliers have demonstrated commitment and drive to break the cost curve and enhance competitiveness. Statoil has cooperated closely with the suppliers on technology qualification, concept development and pre-engineering studies, and jointly we have delivered successful subsea projects,” said Torger Rød, Statoil vice president for projects.
 
“The agreements constitute a framework upon which the suppliers can continue with optimisation and cost reducing measures. Future awards will go to the suppliers who are willing to and capable of continuing the drive for sustained quality, standardisation, higher efficiency and lower costs,” said Rød.
