Aibel lands Johan Sverdrup second phase concept study

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway Aibel said it is one of the companies working on a C study for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development in the central Norwegian North Sea.

Aibel’s assignment is to consider a module-based solution for a new process platform at the field center for future phases of Johan Sverdrup. This is a similar concept to the one used for the Johan Sverdrup drilling platform, which is currently under way. The results of the study will form important input in the decision making process for Statoil’s choice of concept for the next development phase.

The company started working on the C study in January and will continue throughout June. On average, the study will involve around 35 employees, and it will be managed from its Oslo office.

This is Aibel’s third Johan Sverdrup assignment. The EPC contract for the field’s drilling platform was awarded in February 2015, while the EPC contract for the Haugsneset converter station was awarded in October 2015.
