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.
