Xodus Group AS has been awarded a framework agreement by Lundin Norway AS to provide engineering studies and verification services for its developments on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The agreement is for four years with potential extension for two years.
It will draw on Xodus’ expertise from across the company’s wide ranging technical capabilities as it calls for concept screening, feasibility studies, concept selection and pre-engineering, subsea and facilities including modifications, debottlenecking and process optimisation studies.
The framework will see Xodus working closely with Kvaerner, EMAS Chiyoda Subsea and Kanfa as partners and subcontractors, giving Lundin access to concept owner expertise.
It was won against fierce competition and represents an important step for Xodus and its partners in establishing a comprehensive understanding of challenges related to Lundin’s discoveries including the particular challenges of arctic and sub-arctic areas.
Steve Swindell, Operations Director with Xodus Group says, “We are delighted to be working with Lundin to achieve their development objectives. Along with the other support providers who are leaders in their fields, Xodus can bring added value to Lundin through independent thinking and access to leading technology and concept providers.
“Our specialists in studies and verification services are focused on delivering high quality on all projects and this agreement gives us the ability to offer even more insight by working closely with Lundin over the next four years.”
Xodus has already been awarded two call-off orders based on the framework agreement including a feasibility study for one of Lundin’s developments in the Barents Sea.
