 "This agreement is natural in light of our great interest in this field. We also have considerable skills in this area, which will enable us to realise good synergies," says Øivind Dahl-Stamnes, vice president for  partner-operated fields.  

StatoilHydro will under this agreement be responsible for the concept choice, pre-engineering, construction and installation of the subsea production system for Marulk.

"We have experience from similar projects in the same area, which may contribute to cost-effective development of the field. The personnel working at Marulk will largely be familiar with the Norne and Alve fields," Dahl-Stamnes says.

The Marulk field is planned to be tied in to the Norne vessel, utilising idle capacity.
