The fabrication of the pipelines will be executed on the existing spoolbase operated by Subsea7's affiliate company Sevenseas Angola. For the offshore execution, Subsea 7 will use either the Skandi Navica or its new pipelay vessel, Seven Oceans along with a construction support vessel from its fleet.

In 2006, the Acergy Piper installed 354km of 42-inch pipe between Nyhamna and the Sleipner Platform. This included crossing of the Norwegian Trench in water depths of up to 385m. This main scope was completed one month ahead of schedule in August 2006. Statoil awarded Acergy an additional workscope to install 158km of 42-inch pipe, this work was completed in September 2006, also ahead of deadline.
