Ocean Installer has recently completed the very first permanent subsea installation at the Johan Sverdrup field, marking the kick-off of the Johan Sverdrup offshore work.
The offshore campaign took place late January in line with project plans and schedule and involved the installation of a subsea template for water injection. The template weighed 290 ton and was installed making use of the CSV Normand Vision.
“This was a very complex lift, taking place during what is normally one of the most challenging offshore months in the North Sea. But thorough planning and excellent cooperation with Statoil ensured that the campaign went very smoothly,” says Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.
This is the first offshore campaign Ocean Installer will be executing for Statoil on Johan Sverdrup this year, and before the summer Ocean Installer will have installed two more subsea templates for water injection on the field.
“We are very happy that Statoil have chosen us as one of the contributors to this important project on the Norwegian Shelf and we are looking forward to the next offshore Sverdrup campaign,” says Riise.
Ocean Installer was awarded the Johan Sverdrup work February last year as part of a larger Statoil contract for subsea installation works that also covered Gina Krog and Oseberg Vestflanken. Together this constitutes a significant portion of Statoil’s planned subsea construction work on the NCS for the 2017 season.
