Apply Leirvik to construct Peregrino II living quarters for Statoil
- Business & Finance
Norway’s Apply Leirvik has been awarded a new living quarters engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract from Statoil with a total value of 400 million NOK ($48 million).
Apply Leirvik said that Statoil awarded the company a contract for the delivery of the living quarters module for the Peregrino II platform in the Campos Basin in Brazil.
The contract includes delivery of a five-floor accommodation module with a total area of 2.600 square meters, a capacity of 120 beds, recreation areas, change rooms, helicopter deck, lifeboats, and other facilities required for operation of an offshore hotel.
Apply added that the company would perform the work at its facilities in Stord, Norway, and that engineering work would begin immediately with delivery scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.
Apply Leirvik CEO Helge Gjøsæter said: “We are honored that Statoil has selected Apply Leirvik for delivery of the Peregrino II accommodation module and that our client has appreciated the advantages of an aluminum construction.”
According to the company, this is the first complete delivery of an aluminum module from the Stord yard to the international market. The new deal adds to Apply Leirvik’s order book along with the ongoing Johan Sverdrup contract.
“This contract, in addition to already ongoing contracts for Statoil both for Apply Leirvik, Kværner Stord, and other companies, secure the further development of the region, workplaces and offshore competence,” said Apply.
To remind, Dutch contractor Heerema Fabrication Group was awarded a procurement and construction contract for the Peregrino II jacket in mid-May.
As for the field itself, the Peregrino field, discovered in 1994, is a heavy oil field situated in the South and South West section of the Campos Basin, approximately 85 kilometers of the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Statoil is the operator of the Peregrino field, which is presently developed with two wellhead platforms and a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO). A system of pipelines, risers and cables connects this FPSO and the two wellhead platforms.
The Peregrino Phase II Field Development will add a third wellhead platform, as this area is not accessible by the existing two platforms. It contains an 8-legged jacket and a wellhead platform with a drilling unit (WHP-C) tied-back to the existing FPSO.
