Kanfa clinches Dvalin work
Kanfa has received an order from Aibel for the Nitrogen Generator unit for the DEA Dvalin tie-in to Statoil’s Heidrun platform, offshore Norway.
KANFA Ingenium Process will be responsible for the EPC delivery of the Nitrogen Generator unit.
After first being awarded the TEG Regen skid, this is the 2nd package Aibel has ordered with KANFA for the Dvalin project.
Norwegian oil services company Aibel has recently started construction of the first of two modules for the DEA-operated Dvalin project, formerly known as Zidane, located in the Norwegian Sea.
The two modules will enable the Statoil-operated Heidrun platform to receive production from Dvalin.
DEA, the operator of the Dvalin field, submitted the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for the Dvalin field to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Norway in October 2016 and the authorities approved it in March this year.
The plan entails a four wells subsea template, which is connected to the Heidrun platform where the gas will be partially processed in a new module before it is transported in a new export pipeline to Polarled, going to the Nyhamna onshore gas terminal. At Nyhamna, the gas will be processed and transported to the European market.
Aibel got the contract to build the two modules last October. These will weigh 4,000 tons (M40) and 400 tons (H25), respectively. H25 was scheduled for installation in 2018 and M40 in 2019. In addition to building the modules, Aibel was put in charge of clearing the area on Heidrun and manage integration on the platform.
