Technip has been awarded two contracts by Maersk Oil for the Valdemar and Roar gas lift project as well as the Rolf replacement pipeline project, on the Danish Continental Shelf, 250km offshore Esbjerg, Denmark.

The scope of work will include:

  •  fabricating and installating two riser caissons on the Valdemar and Roar platforms,
  •  fabricating and installating an 8in., 18km  flowline between the Rolf A and Gorm E platforms,
  •  pipeline trenching and protection operations,
  •  fabricating and installating 34 spools,
  •  offshore commissioning.

Technip’s operating centre in Oslo, Norway, will execute the project. Vessels from the Group fleet, including the Wellservicer, a diving and multi support vessel (pictured), will perform the offshore installation in summer 2015. The flowline will be fabricated at Technip’s spoolbase in Orkanger, Norway, and installed by the Apache II, from Technip’s fleet. Fabrication of the caissons and spools will be locally performed in Denmark.

Knut Boe, President North Sea Canada, stated: “We are looking forward to managing these two projects, which combine our diving, construction and pipelay capabilities, in the Danish subsea market.”

The Valdemar and Roar fields are part of the Tyra Centre, which also includes the Tyra, Tyra Southeast, Svend, and Harald (processing production from Harald and Lulita) installations.  

Details about Valdemar and Roar, according to Denmark's Energy Agency: 

The Roar Field

The Roar field has been developed as a satellite to the Tyra Field with an unmanned wellhead platform of the STAR type without a helideck. After separation into a gas and a liquid phase, the hydrocarbons produced are conveyed through two pipelines to Tyra East for processing and export ashore.

The Valdemar Field

The Valdemar field has been developed with two satellite installations to Tyra, Valdemar A and Valdemar B.

Valdemar A comprises two unmanned wellhead platforms (VAA and VAB) of the STAR type without a helideck, connected by a bridge. After separation the production of gas is transported to Tyra West for processing and transportation ashore/export, while the liquid production (oil and water) is transported to Tyra East for processing and export ashore.

Valdemar B comprises an unmanned wellhead platform (VBA) of the STAR type without a helideck, some 4 km from the Valdemar VAA/VAB complex. The production from Valdemar VBA is conveyed to the Roar installations through a multiphase pipeline which on the seafloor is tied in to the gas pipeline between Roar and Tyra East. The production from the Valdemar VBA platform is transported to Tyra East for processing and export ashore.
