Aibel and Aker Solutions have, on behalf of the licence partners, been awarded contracts for hook-up and commissioning assistance for the Johan Sverdrup field centre, phase 1. The contracts have a total value of slightly less than NOK 1.3 billion, excl. options. The scope of work for the riser platform accounts for an estimated 70 % of the total scope committed in both contracts.

“These contacts are the last construction contracts in Phase 1 of the Johan Sverdrup development. The competent supplier team now in place will help us develop a project for several generations on the Norwegian continental shelf. Norwegian suppliers have demonstrated competiveness, and have together landed more than 70 % of all awarded Johan Sverdrup contracts,” says Margareth ?vrum, Statoil’s executive vice president for Technology, Projects and Drilling.

Aibel has been awarded the contract for hook-up and commissioning of the drilling platform on the Johan Sverdrup field centre in 2018. The contract includes an option for hook-up and commissioning of the processing and accommodation platforms in 2019.

Aker Solutions has been awarded the contract for hook-up and commissioning of the riser platform on the field centre in 2018. The contract includes an option for hook-up and commissioning of the processing and accommodation platforms in 2019.

Preparations start immediately. Kicking off in the summer of 2018 the hook-up work offshore represents the final and crucial phase prior to first oil on the Johan Sverdrup field. In this phase the jackets, platforms, wells, subsea equipment, export pipelines and power from shore will be hooked up to form a fully functioning field centre that will come on stream in late 2019.

Two mobile accommodation facilities in addition to the Johan Sverdrup accommodation platform combined have the capacity to accommodate more than 1,200 people offshore.

“The scope of work is extensive and in the peak period an estimated 650 positions will be needed offshore, rotating on three shifts, i.e. almost 2,000 offshore workers. The entire Johan Sverdrup development puts the industry to the test again due to the size of the project.

The Johan Sverdrup commissioning will be the most complex and extensive commissioning project offshore that Statoil has ever been responsible for over its 40 years as an operator on the NCS. It will be demanding, but we have solved complex tasks before with our suppliers,” says Kjetel Digre, project director for Johan Sverdrup.
