March 22 (Renewables Now) - Norwegian energy group Statoil (STO:STLO) has awarded a master service agreement (MSA) to 4Subsea for both its oil and gas and renewable energy projects.

The two companies are also working on various research and development (R&D) projects, including on new concepts for floating offshore wind, 4Subsea said.

The MSA covers services and research projects related to structural integrity of fixed and floating offshore installations. 4Subsea will be there for subsea installations from subsea wellheads, drilling and workover riser systems, flexible risers, mooring systems, wellheads, marine systems, and offshore wind farm installations.

Statoil is involved in several European offshore wind projects, including the 30-MW Hywind Scotland floating wind development.
