Kvaerner: Edvard Grieg topside ready for delivery

Norway’s Kvaerner has informed that the 22 000 tonnes topside for the new offshore platform for the Lundin-operated Edvard Grieg field is ready for delivery.

The next phase for the topside is preparations for tow-out and hook-up of all systems before production starts from the field, offshore Norway.

Kvaerner has under a separate EPC contract also delivered the steel jacket substructure for the Edvard Grieg platform. The 14 500 tonnes structure was delivered in the spring of 2014 from Kvaerner’s facilities for steel jackets in Verdal, Norway.

“This has been a demanding project but we have kept the milestones all the way, and we are proud of completing Edvard Grieg at the exact time agreed with Lundin Norway three years ago.

The topside is not only delivered on time but also to agreed quality and exceptionally little outstanding work. This is another demonstration of Kvaerner’s and the Norwegian supplier industry’s ability to execute large, complex projects without expensive quality errors and delays,” says Jan Arve Haugan, President & CEO of Kvaerner.

The topside consists of a main deck module, a combined utility module and living quarters, a process module and a flare tower. The main deck module and the combined utility module and living quarters have both been moved to barges at Stord, ready for tow-out to the field.

The process module is also ready on a barge at Aker Solutions in Egersund, Norway, and the flare tower is completed and ready for delivery directly offshore from the subcontractor in Poland. The modules for the topside will be towed to field and lifted in place on top of the steel jacket in three separate lifts. Kvaerner will assist Lundin with offshore hook up and completion during the summer and into the fall. The production is expected to reach a peak of 100 000 barrels a day.

The oil will be processed and transported through a new pipeline to the Grane field and further via Grane’s piping to the Sture terminal. Lundin Norway AS is operator and owns 50 percent of the license. The other partners are Wintershall Norway with 15 percent, OMV Norway with 20 percent and Statoil with 15 percent.
