Flux Group to supply umbilicals for Johan Sverdrup development

Flux Group’s subsidiary Active Service has been awarded a contract for the provision of 40 hydraulic umbilicals and hoses for a wellhead control system which will be installed at the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.

Flux said on Monday that the umbilicals and hoses would be produced for the engineering and manufacturing company CRE8 Systems AS, the company in charge of installing the equipment.

Flux Group acquired Active Services, the former hoses and couplings division of Fluid Control, in November 2016 with the objective to further develop and grow the company along with the other companies in the group.

This award, in combination with Johan Sverdrup awards to Flux Group’s two other subsidiaries, Valvision and Norwegian Piping, means that the Group has now secured Johan Sverdrup-related contracts within all its product segments.

Ådne Grødem, CEO at Flux Group, said: “Johan Sverdrup is a prestige project, and winning this contract supports our acquisition of Active Service and further validates Flux Group as an attractive partner on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.”

Stavanger-based Active Service has in-house production of umbilical and hydraulic flying leads which, according to the company, enables the delivery of customized designs with short lead-time.

Erlend Fremstad, Managing Director at Active Service, said: “We have had great success with our umbilical deliveries, and are very pleased that CRE8 chose us as their preferred supplier.”

Flux added that the deliveries from Active Services to CRE8 under this recent contract would begin immediately.

Although the value of the contract was left undisclosed, it is worth noting that Flux Group companies have until the end of 2016 secured Johan Sverdrup-related contracts worth more than NOK 120 million ($14.5 million).

As far as the field itself is concerned, the Statoil-operated Johan Sverdrup field is located in the North Sea, offshore Norway. The field will be developed using four fixed platforms connected by bridges. Production from the field is expected to begin in late 2019.
