Ivar Aasen topside installation time-lapse

Written by  OE Staff Monday, 08 August 2016 08:24

In this video from Det norske oljeselskap, the company shows a time-lapse of the topside installation on Ivar Aasen on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The 15,000-tonne topside, which was installed late last month, has now been installed on the jacket, in two lifts using the Saipem 7000

First oil is expected in December 2016.

The Ivar Aasen field is west of the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea and contains approximately 204 MMboe, in five blocks: PL 001B, 028B, 242, 338 and 547; and three deposits: Ivar Aasen, West Cable and Hanz. The economic life of the Ivar Aasen field could be 20 years, depending on oil prices and production trends. The operator is Det norske, holding a 34.8% ownership interest.

Last week, Det norske received consent to use Safe Zephyrus as a flotel at the Ivar Aasen development, about 175km west of Karmøy in Rogaland county, Norway.
