Viking Queen to Support Castorone’s Johan Sverdrup Campaign

Norwegian vessel owner Eidesvik has been awarded a contract with Saipem for the PSV “Viking Queen” to support the pipe-laying vessel “Castorone”.

Castorone will be engaged in laying pipes from the Johan Sverdrup field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea to Mongstad and Kårstø oil and gas terminals in Norway.

In December 2015, Statoil, on behalf of the Johan Sverdrup partners, awarded Saipem an installation contract for the Johan Sverdrup export pipelines project.

Saipem is responsible for the installation of a 156 km 18-inch gas export pipeline for the Kårstø gas terminal, as well as approximately 282 km 36-inch oil export pipeline for the Mongstad terminal.

The duration of the contract for the Viking Queen is estimated to be between 100 and 160 days, with start-up in March/April 2018.
