Equinor’s Trestakk Project

Delivered on promises

Achieving project success through integration and trust.


Integration, collaboration and trust between client and contractor were the key ingredients to achieving outstanding project success at the Trestakk field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.


An integrated approach at project inception can simplify development solutions.

TechnipFMC won its first integrated Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (iEPCI™) contract from Equinor (formerly Statoil) for its Trestakk field development in November 2016. The award originated directly from an integrated Front End Engineering Design (iFEED™) study awarded in  February 2016.

Consisting of three production wells and two gas injection wells, the Trestakk development is a visionary example of how taking an integrated approach at project inception can simplify development solutions, significantly reduce cost and enhance overall client value.


A holistic approach made development of this field achievable.

“Trestakk is our first iEPCI™ project. This holistic approach is what makes development of this field doable. It also means that we assume greater responsibility due to the integrated delivery compared with development projects that are split into smaller packages. Trust is a prerequisite for working in this innovative way that ensures sustainable cost reduction,” Project Director Simen Andersen said.

One team, one goal

Early collaboration flowing from the iFEED™ study was important and allowed the prioritization of “long lead items,” specialty equipment that has a long delivery period.

“That is when the supplier can influence the cost most. By working together as an integrated team, you build the trust and the joint understanding of the key value drivers of the operator,” he said. “Through early involvement, suppliers can devise and develop the best technical solution, schedule and execution model.”
