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.
