The scope includes the conceptual design of the Wisting pipelines and umbilical’s routing and overall field layout conceptual engineering. In addition the contract includes conceptual design of the 200 km long gas expert pipeline form Wisting field to the Snøhvit D template.
Wisting is a discovery in the Barents Sea, 300 kilometers from Norway’s northern coast. The water depth is 400 meters. Equinor will have the operatorship of Wisting in the development phase, while OMV will assume the role as operator for the operation phase.
