Norwegian services company SubseaPartner said it has secured a contract from Vår Energi, to provide dive support at its operated Goliat field in the Barents Sea.

The engineering and installation project work scope incorporates a 24 hours air diving operation on the Goliat floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO) fairleads.

Project management and engineering work has already commenced from SubseaPartner headquarters in Haugesund, the company said. Offshore activities are scheduled to take place during the summer of 2019.

The light diving craft LDC Venturer has been selected for the operation. The special purpose vessel is one out of two crafts utilized for field support and second newbuild in SubseaPartner fleet.

Ole Morten Skagland, chief commercial officer, said, "For many years SubseaPartner has worked toward a market position as an international diving contractor under the Norwegian regulatory for manned underwater operations."

"This contract award by Vår Energi puts us to be a new player offshore, ranging through the water column from surface to seabed," he said.

The Goliat field, discovered in 2000, is located in PL 229 in the northernmost area on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).

The field is developed with a fully winterized floating production unit including subsea systems, and production start-up took place in March 2016.

Vår Energi is operator with 65% ownership interests. Its partner Equinor holds the remaining 35% stake.
