Kvaerner has delivered the third jacket for Johan Sverdrup Phase 1 development in the North Sea.

Through the frame agreement entered into in 2014, and in international competition, Kvaerner was awarded the three largest substructures out of four for the first phase of the project.

The first delivery was the riser platform jacket in the summer of 2017. In March this year, Kvaerner delivered the drilling platform substructure, and on Friday the process platform jacket sailed away from Verdal.

“This is an important day for us. Close to four years after signing a frame agreement for delivery of steel substructures for Equinor projects, the last jacket for the Johan Sverdrup field for the time being, is delivered. The three substructures are delivered in good cooperation with the customer and subcontractors at the agreed time and quality. The deliveries from Verdal make up around 90 percent of the total substructure weight in the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development. Including the piles, we are not far from having delivered 100 000 tonnes of steel from Kvaerner,” said EVP Structural Solutions, Sturla Magnus.

Equinor is the operator of the Johan Sverdrup field, located in the North Sea around 155 kilometers west of Karmøy in Rogaland county.

Johan Sverdrup is one of the largest offshore oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf, with estimated reserves of up to 3.1 billion barrels of oil equivalent. The field is in development and production is planned to start in 2019.
