Sembcorp Announces Clarifications Relating to Johan Castberg Project

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/24/2021, Location: Europe

Sembcorp Marine Ltd refers to various media reports on the Johan Castberg hull project and would like to provide the following clarifications.

Sembcorp Marine’s scope of work for the Johan Castberg Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel comprises the construction of the hull and living quarters and installation of the turret supplied by its customer, Equinor. The construction of the topside modules, module integration and final completion are not part of the Company’s scope of work and have always been intended by Equinor to be performed in Norway.

The work on the hull and the living quarters was in an advanced stage when the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, resulting in various work restrictions which caused delays in the project. During the construction of the hull, there were variations and additions to the scope of work and these also required additional time to complete. The remaining scope of work left is small relative to the base scope and variations that have been completed by the Company.

Presently, the Johan Castberg hull and living quarters are largely completed. However, due to the available transportation window for the towing operations to Norway, Equinor has requested that the Company plan the remaining scope of work to accommodate the towing window. Such adjustments are provided for in the terms of the Contract and the Company and Equinor are presently finalising these arrangements.
