    Sonsub completes operations on Ettrick project

    Projects and Operations // October 17, 2008

    The Sonsub Division of Saipem UK has recently completed operations on the Ettrick subsea field development operated by Nexen Petroleum UK Limited in the North Sea, resulting in a successful conclusion to the substantial two year long project.

    The development includes three subsea production wells and one water injector tied back to an FPSO, with Sonsub’s scope of work comprising the installation and hook-up of the subsea pipelines, umbilicals, risers, structures and FPSO retractable buoy mooring systems. All operations were carried out in a safe and efficient manner.

    Giorgio Martelli, the company's General Manager, said: “This is the largest project completed by Sonsub in recent years, and it really highlights Sonsub’s maturity as a fully fledged subsea construction contractor.”
