Norwegian fabrication company Kvaerner has released a time-lapse video showing the transport of Edvard Grieg’s main deck to barge. 

Namely, on March 20, 2015, the main deck frame of the Edvard Grieg platform topside was transported on barge at Kvaerner Stord.

According to the company, 16000 tonnes of platform deck and equipment was moved by 1800 wheels.

Edvard Grieg is an oil field in block 16/1 in production licence PL338, in the North Sea, 180 kilometres west of Stavanger. It is operated by Lundin Petroleum.

Kvaerner was also in charge of building a jacket for Edvard Grieg platform. The construction was completed in April 2014. Two weeks later, the jacket left the yard to be installed in the North Sea.

According to Lundin, the Edvard Grieg field consists of a platform resting on the seabed (steel jacket), with a full process facility, dry wellheads with external jack-up drilling and living quarters. Planned production start-up is in the fourth quarter of 2015.
