Statoil has, on behalf of the Johan Sverdrup licence, awarded Rosenberg WorleyParsons AS a contract for fabrication of three bridges and two flare towers.
The contract value is close to NOK 600 million. The fabrication and assembly will mainly be carried out in Stavanger, but also with contribution from other Norwegian and international sub-suppliers.
A bridge between the riser platform and the drilling platform and one flare tower will be delivered in 2018, and the remaining two bridges and one flare tower will be delivered in 2019.
The combined weight of all three bridges is 4700 t.
“Stavanger is put on the map as a key fabrication and assembly site for Johan Sverdrup when the contract for three bridges and two flare towers are awarded to Rosenberg WorleyParsons. This is an important delivery for the Johan Sverdrup project, and we look forward to a close collaboration in Stavanger in the time ahead. The project execution is progressing as planned,” said Johan Sverdrup Project Director, Kjetel Digre.
Phase 1 of the Johan Sverdrup field development consists of four platforms, and these bridges will connect all the platforms. The two flare towers will be distributed on the processing and riser platforms.
The project has so far awarded contracts worth approximately NOK 60 billion.
