Dec. 10, 12015 + + + Statoil, on behalf of the
Johan Sverdrup partners, has awarded contracts for the line pipe, coating
and pipe installation of the Johan Sverdrup oil field export pipelines. The total contract value is estimated at slightly less than NOK 2.5
billion (US$0.29 billion). The three contracts cover both the oil and gas
export pipelines for Johan Sverdrup, located in the North Sea,
approximately 140 km west of Stavanger, Norway.
The line pipe fabrication contract for the export
pipelines was awarded to Mitsui & Co. Norway A.S. Mitsui will deliver
220,000 tonnes of steel for the oil and gas pipelines, totalling 430 km.
Line pipe production will start at Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal
steelworks in Japan early in 2016
Malaysia Sdn Bhd was awarded the contract for external anti-corrosion
treatment and concrete weight coating for the oil and gas pipelines, as
well as internal flow coating for the gas pipeline. The work will be
performed at Wasco’s factory in Malaysia in 2017.
Saipem Ltd has been awarded the pipelaying contract for the oil and
gas export pipelines. The pipelaying operation is scheduled to start in
the spring of 2018, using the laying vessel CastorOne.
President for the Johan Sverdrup project Kjetel Digre said delivery of
first oil from Johan Sverdrup is anticipated from late 2019.
Stabilised oil will be exported to the Mongstad terminal through a new oil
pipeline connected to existing storage caverns. The oil export solution
consists of a 274 km, 36 inch pipeline to the Mongstad terminal, including
required modifications at the terminal.
Gas will be exported to
Kårstø gas terminal through a new gas pipeline. The gas export solution
includes a 156 km, 18 inch pipeline tied in to the Statpipe rich gas
pipeline, including a hot-tap hook-up to this pipeline. No modifications
are required at Kårstø for the reception of the Johan Sverdrup gas.
The oil and gas export development will meet the transportation needs
for all phases of the Johan Sverdrup development.
