Johan Sverdrup riser platform construction begins in South Korea

Statoil ASA said construction has begun at the Samsung Heavy Industries yard in South Korea on the riser platform for the Johan Sverdrup development in the North Sea (OGJ Online, June 6, 2016).

The riser platform will be 124 m long, 28 m wide, 42 m tall, and weigh 23,000 tonnes. It will be the largest of four Johan Sverdrup Phase 1 platforms and serve as the receiver of land-based power and the sender of oil and gas to land.

Statoil in January 2015 awarded Kvaerner ASA the contract for engineering and procurement management for the riser platform and the processing platform (OGJ Online, Jan. 20, 2015).

Construction of the processing platform will begin in July.
