Offshore staff

STOCKHOLM, SwedenHeerema’s heavy-lift vessel Thialf has completed installation of the topsides modules onto the Edvard Grieg field jacket in the central Norwegian North Sea.

The vessel lifted four modules – the main deck frame, the utility and living quarters module, the processing module and the flare boom, with a total weight of 22,000 metric tons (24,251 tons).

Final offshore hook up and commissioning of these modules has started, and Lundin continues to target first production during 4Q.

Two of the production wells have been drilled and completed and are ready to be tied-in to the platform.

Lundin operates in partnership with Wintershall, OMV, and Statoil.
