The project, called the Oseberg C Continuous Drilling (LQ Extension) project, is an EPCI contract that involves full responsibility for engineering, procurement, construction and installation in the project.

“We’re delighted that Statoil again has shown confidence in us as the provider of such services with EPCI responsibility. This is a recognition of our expertise in other areas than maintenance and modification,” said Jan Ståle Skår, Aibel’s director of maintenance and modifications.

Room for more

The new module will be connected to the existing living quarters on the Oseberg C platform and will mean 30 additional cabins offshore. The main task for Aibel will be the preparation and hook-up of the new module. In addition, Aibel will have overall responsibility for the interface of the project.

Start in August

There will be at most 40 Aibel employees working on the project. Management, administration and planning will take place in Bergen. Prefabrication will be performed in Haugesund. Work will start on 1 August and the connection is scheduled for spring 2016.

“This project is perfect for our Bergen office, which recently delivered an upgrading of the living quarters at the Oseberg field centre with very good results. Key personnel with good knowledge of systems, procedures and methods are now ready to embark on this new project,” said Skår.
