Rosenberg WorleyParsons has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract (EPCI) by Lundin Norway ASO in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The services include planning, engineering, prefabrication, offshore installation and commissioning support. The objective of the modification is to prepare Lundin’s Edvard Grieg platform to receive and process oil and gas from nearby offshore fields.
The project starts immediately and has a duration of two and a half years. The services will be executed from WorleyParsons Rosenberg in Stavanger.
“WorleyParsons is proud to be selected to execute this important brownfield modification project for Lundin Norway”, says Andrew Wood, Chief Executive Officer of WorleyParsons.
This is a so-called EPC contract, which comprises engineering services, purchasing and construction work offshore. Rosenberg WorleyParsons will start engineering related to prefabrication of steel structures, pipelines and other necessary material immediately, while the installation work offshore will start first half of 2019. The work is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.
“The work to prepare the Edvard Grieg platform to receive oil and gas from nearby fields is very important for us,” says managing director in Lundin Norway, Kristin Færøvik. “This will ensure both good utilisation of the infrastructure we already have in the platform and export pipeline, and it will enable us to achieve profitable development of smaller fields in the area.”
The Edvard Grieg platform was designed as a field centre, enabling processing oil and gas from other fields in the area. Today, in addition to own production, Edvard Grieg processes hydrocarbons from the Ivar Aasen field.
With these modifications to be implemented, the platform will be able to handle the satellite fields Luno II and Rolvsnes, both operated by Lundin Norway. Also, preparations for additional satellite fields will be made.
