IKM Ocean Design has been awarded an engineering contract for pipeline and umbilical for the Equinor-operated Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project located offshore Norway.
The contract is a continuation of IKM Ocean Design’s long-term involvement in the Johan Sverdrup project, where the company has been involved in all project stages for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the development since 2013, the company said on Friday.
Phase 1 of the project consists of four field center platforms and three off subsea water injection templates, while Phase 2 consists of an additional process platform at the field center with subsea development of three different satellite areas.
Phase 1 production was initiated in October this year, and Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 Project is scheduled for production start-up in 4Q 2022.
IKM Ocean Design has been responsible for the design of the infield pipelines and spools during the Phase 1 development. In addition, the work has included overall responsibility for the field layout including umbilicals, cables and export pipelines.
For Phase 2 of the development, IKM is responsible for the design of all infield pipelines. The infield pipelines include production lines, gas injection/gas lift lines, and water injection pipelines. As for Phase 1, IKM is also responsible for the overall field layout as part of the Phase 2 detail design.
The contract has a duration of three years (until December 2022) for the completion of detailed design, follow-on and supervision for all pipelines and cables in the field, which means that IKM Ocean design then has been involved in the Johan Sverdrup Project for ten years.
