LYSAKER, Norway – Statoil has confirmed Kværner for delivery of the drilling platform jacket to Johan Sverdrup.
Kværner signed a frame agreement in the middle of 2014 to deliver steel jacket substructures to Statoil and also got a letter of intent for the Sverdrup riser platform and drilling platform at the same time.
The drilling platform jacket is scheduled to be delivered in the spring of 2018. The engineering has now started at Kvaerner's offices in Oslo. Kvaerner Verdal is the contract party, and the project management will be based at the company's specialised jacket facility in Verdal, where fabrication will be executed.
Prefabrication will start in the summer of 2016, and assembly will take place from the spring of 2017
