Alfa Laval’s pumping system for Johan Sverdrup platforms
Alfa Laval, Swedish heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling company, has won an order by Statoil to supply its Framo pumping systems to several oil platforms in the North Sea.
The company says that the order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Pumping Systems segment, has a value of approximately SEK 200 million ($24.25M) and delivery is scheduled for 2016.
The order comprises the delivery of fire-water pumping systems to four oil platforms operated by Statoil in the Johan Sverdrup oil field in the North Sea.
“I am pleased to announce yet another large order from the offshore oil and gas industry for our Framo range,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “These reliable and efficient products fit very well into our product portfolio.”
The Johan Sverdrup discovery is one of the largest oil discoveries ever made on the Norwegian continental shelf that is estimated to last for over 50 years. The production is expected to start in 2019.
Norwegian government recently approved the plan for development of one of Norway’s largest oil discoveries in decades.
