Ivar Aasen-Edvard Grieg pipelines in place offshore Norway

Offshore staff

TRONDHEIM, Norway – Main activities for the Ivar Aasen development in the Norwegian North Sea are progressing as planned, according to operator Det norske oljeselskap.

The jackup Maersk Interceptor started pre-drilling of production wells in mid-July, batch setting five deep set conductors, and the drilling program is ahead of schedule.

By end-September, all three pipelines between Ivar Aasen and the Edvard Grieg complex had been installed and tested, while this year’s planned subsea activity is expected to be completed soon.

Construction of the platform topsides in Singapore is around 85% complete, and piping insulation has begun.

Last month, the helideck was lifted into place on the living quarters at Stord, Norway.

In late July, the jackup Maersk Integrator began pre-drilling production wells on Statoil’s nearby Gina Krog field, where Det norske is a partner. Here the development is based around a steel jacket and integrated topsides platform with living quarters and processing facilities.

Exploration wells were completed this summer on the East-3 segment, and the partners are assessing future tie-in possibilities.
