Important contracts for Jette now signed

Det norske has signed three important contracts in preparing for the Jette development. The contractors are Cameron, Subsea7 and Aker Solutions.

September 5th, 2011, Det norske oljeselskap ASA presented a plan for development and operation (PDO) of Jette to the Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Ola Borten Moe. The PDO was submitted on behalf of the partners in the Jette Group, which in addition to Det norske as operator, includes Petoro, Dana Petroleum and Bridge Energy.

Senior Vice President Projects, Bård Atle Hovd (picture), says this is an important step towards developing Jette.

- We have now signed the third and final contract for the development phase. As soon as we receive the Ministry´s approval, we will embark on our first field development. We wish for a fast track development, enabling us to produce oil from Q1 2013

Jette is located in blocks 25/7 and 25/8, in the mid part of the North Sea. The field, which lies at a depth of 127 meters, will be produced with two horizontal wells, tied back to the Jotun floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

Three suppliers
Det norske has signed supplier agreements with three contractors. Cameron has been selected to supply the subsea production system. They will, amongst other, fabricate the X-mas trees and protective structures.


Subsea 7 will be responsible for engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of a 6 kilometer flexible flowline and jumpers, installation of a 6 kilometer integrated services umbilical, X-mas trees and protective structures. They will also supply diver assisted tie-ins.

Aker Solutions is given the assignment to fabricate the 6 kilometer integrated services umbilical.

Engineering and fabrication were initiated immediately after contract signing. The work is led by the Jette project management team situated in Trondheim and Stavanger (drilling operations). Offshore operations will, according to schedule, take place autumn 2012.
