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.

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

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