Kvaerner, Dragados scoop remaining Johan Sverdrup jackets

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Statoil has awarded contracts for two more platform jackets for the Johan Sverdrup complex in the central Norwegian North Sea to Kvaerner Verdal and Dragados Offshore.

The scope of Kvaerner Verdal’s contract, valued at around NOK 1 billion ($122 million), covers engineering, fabrication, and construction of the 17,700-metric ton (19,511-ton) steel jacket for the processing platform.

This will be constructed at the company’s yard in Verdal, Norway, with prefabrication and assembly due to start next summer. At peak the following summer, around 180 employees will work on the project.

Delivery is set for summer 2018. Kvaerner is also building Johan Sverdrup’s drilling and riser platforms.

Dragados Offshore, which earlier this year completed the jacket for Statoil’s Mariner platform in the UK sector, will engineer, fabricate, and construct the 7,600-metric ton (8,377-ton) steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup utility and accommodation platform.

This will be built in Cadiz, southwest Spain, and installed on the field during summer 2018.

All four first-phase platforms will be bridge-linked, and connected to three subsea water injection templates.
