Husky Energy has awarded Kvaerner a contract for engineering and marine operations to tow and install the concrete gravity structure (CGS) for the West White Rose Project offshore Canada. The installation is scheduled for Q2 2021. The new multi-million Canadian dollar contract confirms Kvaerner’s leading position for demanding marine operations.
Husky Energy is the operator of the White Rose oilfield offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. Husky is developing the West White Rose Project utilizing a fixed drilling platform consisting of a concrete gravity structure supporting an integrated topsides.
Kvaerner has previously been the main contractor for installation of all of the world’s largest concrete platforms. Under the new contract with Husky, Kvaerner will perform engineering, analysis, planning and execution of marine operations related to tow and installation of the CGS. At its final location offshore on the Grand Banks, Kvaerner will be responsible for installing the concrete gravity structure on the seabed.
'Kvaerner was one of the main contractors for delivery of the floating production and offloading storage vessel SeaRose FPSO to Husky’s White Rose field. We are very proud that Husky has again selected Kvaerner for a key project. Demanding marine operations is one of Kvaerner’s core areas of expertise, and we have a track record for such projects from around the world. We will continue to strengthen our offering to this segment', says Jan Arve Haugan, Kvaerner’s President and CEO.
