Aibel has secured a modification contract to ready the Heidrun platform to receive the production from the Dvalin field, located in PL435, blocks 6507/7/9 and 6507/8 off Norway.

The Dvalin field, formerly named Zidane, will be developed as a subsea tieback to the Heidrun platform in the Norwegian Sea.

Aibel will build two new modules to be installed on the Heidrun platform. The modules will be 4,000 tons (M40) and 400 tons (H25) respectively. H25 is to be installed in 2018, while M40 is to be installed in 2019.

In addition to building the modules, Aibel will clear the area on Heidrun and manage integration on the platform.

According to Aibel, the work will start immediately and the project will be managed from the company’s Oslo office while the construction work will be carried out at the its yard in Haugesund.

DEA Norge, the operator of the Dvalin field submitted the plan for development and operation (PDO) of the field to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Norway on Monday.

The Dvalin licence plans to produce a total volume of approximately 18.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas from two reservoirs, with planned production start in 2020.

Gas from the field will be transported via Heidrun through the Polarled pipeline to the Nyhavna processing plant before being sent to the European market.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
