Statoil has awarded Rosenberg WorleyParsons a contract for fabrication of three bridges and two flare towers for the Johan Sverdrup development project, offshore Norway.
The contract value is close to NOK 600 million ($72 million). The fabrication and assembly will mainly be carried out in Stavanger, but also with contribution from other Norwegian and international sub-suppliers.
According to Statoil, a bridge between the riser platform and the drilling platform and one flare tower (riser platform) will be delivered in 2018, and the remaining two bridges and one flare tower (processing platform) will be delivered in 2019.
The combined weight of all three bridges is 4,700 tonnes, and if put together the overall length of all three bridges totals 260 metres.
“Stavanger is put on the map as a key fabrication and assembly site for Johan Sverdrup when the contract for three bridges and two flare towers are awarded to Rosenberg WorleyParsons. This is an important delivery for the Johan Sverdrup project, and we look forward to a close collaboration in Stavanger in the time ahead. The project execution is progressing as planned,” says Johan Sverdrup project director Kjetel Digre.
Phase 1 of the Johan Sverdrup field development consists of four platforms, and these bridges will connect all the platforms. The two flare towers will be distributed on the processing and riser platforms.
The project has so far awarded contracts totalling close to NOK 60 billion, with a Norwegian share of more than 70%.
