EPG readies modules for Johan Sverdrup living quarters

Poland’s Energomontaż – Północ Gdynia (EPG) has loaded out elements of living quarters (LQ), which will be installed on the Johan Sverdrup field platform in the North Sea.

Mars Shipyards & Offshore said on Monday that the LQ was loaded out on February 1 and that it was one of three huge modules being built by EPG for the Johan Sverdrup field.

The company also said that the contract between EPG and the K2JV ANS consortium, a JV of Kvaerner Stord and KBR, entails production of more than 2,800 tonnes of steel structures for the field.

Bartłomiej Kwiatek, the project manager at EPG, said that the construction, which was loaded on a MERI heavy load carrier, weighs about 1,000 tonnes and its dimensions are 55 x 40 meters

Mars Shipyards & Offshore is formed by shipbuilding, ship repair, and offshore production companies EPG, Energop, MSR Gryfia and Nauta, and marine and offshore design office Mars Design & Solutions.

The LQ will be installed on the field located some 140 kilometers west of Stavanger. Johan Sverdrup is dubbed as the largest offshore development in Norway in the past three decades. The field is operated by Statoil with partners being Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP, and Maersk Oil.

Phase one of Johan Sverdrup development will consist of four bridge-linked platforms, in addition to three subsea water injection templates. The planned production capacity of the first phase is 315,000 to 380,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Peak production is estimated to reach 660,000 barrels daily which will be equivalent to 40 percent of all Norwegian Continental Shelf petroleum production.
