LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool wins two North Sea contracts with Subsea7
LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool has been awarded two contracts by Subsea7 for the Aker BP operated Yggdrasil and Valhall PWP-Fenris offshore field development projects in the North Sea.
The business will need to meet exacting tolerances, manufacture in accordance with demanding specifications and provide a comprehensive logistics solution, including delivery direct to our client’s fabrication site, during the execution phase of the contracts. The pipes will also be coated by LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool prior to delivery. Pipe manufacturing is schedule to start in June 2023, operations will continue into early 2024.
LIBERTY’s LSAW product will act as the outer carrier pipe for the overall Subsea7 pipeline bundle incorporating all structures, valves, pipelines, and control systems within the prefabricated system. Fabrication of the complete assembly takes place onshore, before being towed offshore for installation.
Martyn Curnow, Commercial Director for LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool said:
“We are extremely proud to have secured these contracts and we look forward to delivering both projects safely and to the satisfaction of our long-standing client Subsea7. All preparations are well underway to receive and process the first batch of raw material. Our continued success in this sector reinforces our strategic approach with regards to quality which runs in parallel with value added / cost saving initiatives often demanded by the sector.
Special mention to the extended LIBERTY team, led by Simon Appleby (Commercial) & Graham Alderton (Technical), who have done a fantastic job in securing these contracts on behalf of the business”.
Jeffrey Kabel, LIBERTY Steel’s Chief Transformation Officer:
“LIBERTY’s success in winning this significant new North Sea contract, on top of our recent achievement in becoming the UK’s first producer of hydrogen pipe material and one of a handful globally, highlights how our pipes division can drive development of much-needed new energy infrastructure in the UK and around the world. The specialist expertise of our Hartlepool team means we are well-positioned to compete for new orders that can create UK jobs, benefit the wider economy, support energy transition and strengthen UK energy security”.
Yggdrasil, formally known as NOAKA, consists of the Hugin, Fulla and Munin licence groups, located between Alvheim and Oseberg area in the North Sea. The Yggdrasil field development project involves multiple subsea tiebacks to fixed platforms in the Yggdrasil greenfield development.
The Valhall PWP-Fenris project, located in the southern North Sea, involves a tieback from the Fenris unmanned installation to the new Valhall production wellhead platform and re-routing of existing gas export and gas lift pipelines to the new platform.
