Statoil awards Castberg sea surveillance system contract to Vissim

Norwegian oil giant Statoil has awarded Vissim a contract for a sea surveillance system to be installed on the Johan Castberg FPSO to be located in the Barents Sea off Norway.

Vissim, a Norwegian supplier in the field of vessel traffic management and maritime surveillance systems, said on Monday that the contract with Statoil includes ATEX certified radar domes and software for sea surveillance and radio communications around the FPSO.

Vissim will deliver and integrate Radar, AIS, and VHF systems which will further be integrated into Statoil’s marine surveillance center in Bergen. This center provides similar surveillance for all Statoil assets on the NCS.

The project will be delivered from Vissim’s offices in Norway and Slovakia in 2018.

Vissim CEO, Per Arne Henæs, said: “This contract reflects Vissim’s strong market position on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) as well as the good collaboration Vissim has had with Statoil in previous projects in the North Sea.”

Johan Castberg field development project’s resource base consists of the three oil discoveries Skrugard, Havis and Drivis, located in PL 532.

Statoil submitted the plan for development and operation of its Johan Castberg project to Norwegian authorities in December 2017.

The field development concept includes an FPSO and a subsea development with a total of 30 wells, 10 subsea templates and two satellite structures. Recoverable resources are estimated at 450 – 650 million barrels of oil equivalent. First oil is scheduled for 2022.
