NorSea gets job to store ‘Johan Sverdrup’ pipelines
Norway’s NorSea Group has secured a contract with Norway’s largest oil firm Statoil, to provide intermediate storage for the export pipelines to be installed at the giant Johan Sverdrup field, off Norway.
The company said that the value of the contract was close to NOK 80 million ($9.7 million).
Under the agreement, NorSea will receive of over 36,000 pipe sections, 36 and 18 inches in diameter, at NorSea Stordbase AS. In addition, transportation to storage and load out onto pipe supply vessels heading for the lay barge at the field is included in the scope of work.
The completed pipelines will transport oil from the Johan Sverdrup field onshore to Mongstad, and gas onshore to Kårstø.
“The contract represents a milestone for us and will strengthen the company’s position in competitions for similar contracts linked to the construction of oil and gas pipelines, currently in the planning phase at different locations across the globe,” says Manager of the Project Department at NorSea, Stig Holgersen.
