PHOTO: Kvaerner Receives Johan Sverdrup Riser Jacket Parts


Four piling cluster and two sets flotation tanks, with a total steel weight of close to 7,000 tons, arrived at Kvaerner’s yard in Verdal from Dubai this week .

The structures will be installed on the first and largest steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup projects, currently under construction at Verdal. This is the first of two shipments to arrive at Verdal.

Kvaerner has delivered 43 steel jackets for offshore platforms over the past 43 years. The riser platform for Johan Sverdrup will be the biggest and most complex jacket from Kvaerner so far.

In January 2015, Statoil awarded a contract to Kværner Verdal for delivery of the riser platform jacket for the Johan Sverdrup field.

Scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2017, the jacket’s contract value is close to NOK 2.0 billion.

The contract is an execution of parts of the letter of intent which Statoil entered into with Kværner in 2014 for delivery of two of the four jackets for the Johan Sverdrup field development.

Kvaerner Verdal was also awarded a contract with a value of approximately NOK 1 billion that covers engineering, fabrication and construction of the steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup processing platform.

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.
