Norway: Aker to Tie Dagny Gas Production into Sleipner
Aker Solutions has been awarded the second call-off project under the Sleipner Modification Portfolio Agreement, involving the tie-in of gas production from Dagny. Contract value is NOK 650 million and the work will commence immediately.
The contract involves modification work on Sleipner A. In more detail, this includes engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) to tie the gas production from the Dagny platform into Sleipner A.
“We are very proud to be selected by Statoil for another tie-in project. Modification work is part of our core business and it is important for us to stay competitive and be awarded key projects such as this,” says Tore Sjursen, head of maintenance, modifications and operations (MMO) in Aker Solutions.
Engineering work will be carried out at Aker Solutions’ offices in Stavanger, Bergen and Mumbai and will also engage prefabrication resources at the company’s yard in Egersund. Work under the contract will be completed in 2016.
The Sleipner Modification Portfolio Agreement was awarded to Aker Solutions in August 2010 and the company is currently working on the first call-off project named Gudrun tie-in to Sleipner.
“Aker Solutions is no stranger to the Sleipner area and we look forward to continue a good working relationship with Statoil both here and on other fields,” Sjursen ends.
The Sleipner area is the second largest gas producer in the North Sea, after the Troll field. The Dagny field is located approximately 30 km northwest of Sleipner East. Dagny was discovered in 1974.
