Lundin Norway AS has completed the installation of the topside modules on the Edvard Grieg field, offshore Norway.
To remind, the topside modules recently sailed away heading to the North Sea offshore Norway where the Edvard Grieg field is located.
Lundin said Thursday that the Edvard Grieg topside installation consisted of lifting four modules onto the pre-installed jacket – the main deck frame, the utility and living quarters module, the processing module and the flare boom with a total weight of 22,000 tonnes. The lift operation was carried out by Heerema’s heavy lift vessel Thialf.
According to Lundin, the final offshore hook up and commissioning of these modules has now begun with production expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2015. Two of the production wells have been drilled and completed and are ready to be tied-in to the platform.
Lundin Norway is the operator and has a 50 percent working interest in PL338. The other partners are Wintershall Norway with 15 percent, OMV Norway with 20 percent and Statoil with 15 percent.
