Norwegian ocean services provider DeepOcean has secured a contract with Equinor to perform pipeline inspection and survey work on the operator's pipelines in the North Sea.

As reported by Offshore Technology on Wednesday, February 28, the agreement, which is valid for 2024, builds on DeepOcean's existing frame agreement with Equinor for offshore survey services. 

The company will be responsible for pipeline inspections, seabed mapping, ad-hoc surveys, and light construction tasks.

"We are proud to continue supporting Equinor with subsea services in the North Sea," said Trond Hagland, Commercial Manager - Survey & Inspection at DeepOcean. "We will utilize the vessel Edda Flora with our Superior Survey ROV to perform the survey work."

DeepOcean did not disclose the value of the contract. The Superior Survey ROV, according to the company, offers unmatched performance and stable flying capabilities, ensuring cost-effective inspections and surveys.

DeepOcean's headquarters in Haugesund, Norway, will manage the project, with support from their operations in Aberdeen, UK.

This win comes after DeepOcean announced its entrance into the Guyana market earlier in February with a contract for subsea activities at ExxonMobil's Stabroek Block. 

The company also announced its acquisition of Btwn, further strengthening its position in subsea digitalization and automation.
