Aker Solutions has been awarded the contract for upgrading the Mongstad terminal for Johan Sverdrup oil from late 2019.

The contract valued at NOK 350M ($42.6M USD) includes EPC of a pig receiver for the oil export pipeline from Johan Sverdrup. In addition, the scope of work includes connecting the Johan Sverdrup oil pipeline to the existing storage caverns at the Mongstad terminal.

The engineering work will be performed at Aker Solutions’ office in Bergen. The pre-fabrication of pipes and steel structures will take place at Aker Solutions’ yard in Egersund, whereas the bulk of the construction work will take place at the Mongstad terminal.

"Starting in early 2017 the work at Mongstad will provide opportunities for local suppliers in the Mongstad area," says Kjetel Digre, project director for Johan Sverdrup.

"It is also gratifying that we can include Egersund as a location and contributor delivering on the enormous jig-saw puzzle that the Johan Sverdrup project represents. In Norway all of the big yards along the entire coast are now involved in developing one of the biggest industrial projects in Norway in recent years," says Digre.

Contracts at a value of more than NOK 60 billion have been awarded for Johan Sverdrup, more than 70 % of this won by Norwegian suppliers.
