Valemon topside loaded on Dockwise Triumph vessel (VIDEO)

The topside destined for the Valemon field offshore Norway, has been loaded onto the heavy transport vessel Dockwise Triumph in Korea.

The topside was loaded on the 216.75 meters long vessel at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea on June 1.

“This represents a milestone in the project, and both Statoil and Samsung employees proudly watched as the topside slowly moved,” said Statoil in the description of the time lapse video of the operation, shared on their Youtube channel.

This summer the topside will arrive Norway to be lifted onto the jacket, already in place in the North Sea. According to the plans, the Valemon field, operated by Norwegian oil company Statoil, will come on stream Q4 2014.

The Valemon field is located west of Bergen, approximately 12 km west of the Kvitebjørn installation. The Valemon development is currently one of the largest industrial projects in Norway.

The recoverable reserves are estimated at 206 million barrels of oil equivalents – including 26 billion cubic metres of gas, five million cubic metres of condensate and one million cubic metres of natural gas liquids (NGL).
