Kvaerner completes Edvard Grieg jacket

Norwegian fabrication company Kvaerner on Wednesday celebrated the completion of the jacket, which is a part of Lundin Petroleum-operated Edvard Grieg project, at its yard in Verdal.

Following the tradition the jacket got a symbolic name based on historical Norwegian culture.

According to Kvaerner’s Facebook update, all employees were invited to the naming ceremony where the jacket was named “Solveig”, as proposed by one of the company’s employees, Åsta Skrove.

The jacket “Solveig” has a total weight of approximately 14 500 tonnes and will stand up 134 metres in vertical position. It will be number 41 in the series of jackets delivered by Kvaerner.

The contract for the construction of the jacket was awarded to Kvaerner by the Swedish oil company Lundin Petroleum in January 2012. The jacket will be installed in circa 110-115 metres water depth within the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea, at the Edvard Grieg field.

Kvaerner is also building a topside for the Edvard Grieg project.

First production in 2015

The Edvard Grieg field is an oil field located in the North Sea. First production is expected in late 2015, with a forecast gross peak production of approximately 90 000 barrels of oil per day (bopd). The oil will be processed and transported in a new pipeline to the Grane area and further via the Grane oil pipeline to the Sture terminal for offloading. Lundin Norway AS is the operator and has a 50 percent working interest in the Edvard Grieg field.

The facilities on the Edvard Grieg platform will be prepared for power from shore when capacity and technical solutions are available in order to contribute to the development of a long term electrification of the area. The platform will be Lundin Petroleum’s biggest ever, and their first on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
