Gina Krog living quarters installed

Norwegian oil major Statoil has completed the installation of the living quarters on the Gina Krog field in the North Sea, offshore Stavanger.

Statoil posted a picture on social media of the installed living quarters on Thursday stating that the work was complete on Tuesday night.

To remind, Offshore Energy Today already reported that the module had left Stord on Sunday and that it had set off to join its sister modules on the Gina Krog field.

Also, Statoil has shared a video of the modules for the Gina Krog topside sailing away from South Korea to Norway back in July. The modules sailed away from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering’s shipyard and were expected to reach their destination in approx. 50 days.

The first of the Gina Krog topside module was installed at the field in the North Sea on Thursday, August 18. Weighing close to 10 000 tons, the main support frame was lifted onto the jacket by the Saipem 7000. The main support frame, process module, and utility module were constructed by Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine and Engineeringin South Korea. The living quarters were constructed by Apply Leirvik at Stord, Norway.

The Gina Krog field is located 30 kilometers northwest of the Sleipner field and around 250 kilometers southwest of Stavanger, Norway. The development has an estimated 225 million barrels of oil and gas. Sanctioned in 2013, the Gina Krog development is expected to start producing oil and gas in early 2017.
