Oil field services firm Subsea 7 has been handed a contract by Nexen for work on the Buzzard phase two project.
Luxembourg-registered Subsea 7 will build and install a three mile pipeline bundle at the field, 35 miles off the north-east coast of Scotland.
It will also provide a heavy lift vessel for transporting and installing a new topside module.
Project management and engineering is already under way at Subsea 7’s office in Aberdeen.
The pipeline bundle will be fabricated at Subsea 7’s Wester site near Wick, with technical support from its specialist pipeline group in Glasgow.
Project management and engineering for the heavy lift work scope will be conducted from Seaway Heavy Lifting’s office in Zoetermeer in the Netherlands.
The offshore activities will mainly take place in 2020.
Jonathan Tame, Subsea 7 vice president UK and Canada, said: “Subsea 7 has a long established reputation of close collaboration with clients and supply chain partners to seek out innovative and value-adding ways of working.
“This award represents the ideal opportunity to demonstrate this and to continue our long history of successful project delivery to Nexen.”
The deal is worth between £38-£115 million.
