Kvaerner to support West White Rose installation

October 12, 2017

Husky Energy has awarded Kvaerner a contract for engineering and marine operations to tow and install the concrete gravity structure (CGS) for the West White Rose Project offshore Canada. The installation is scheduled for Q2 2021.

The Husky West White Rose Project will use a fixed platform - an integrated topside on a concrete gravity base - tied back to the SeaRose floating production vessel. The main White Rose field is about 350km (217mi) east of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, on the eastern edge of the Jeanne d’Arc Basin in water depths of about 120m (393ft).

Dockwise is contracted to transport the West White Rose topside from Texas to Newfoundland and Labrador while TechnipFMC has a contract for the supply and installation of subsea equipment including tie-in manifolds, flexible flowlines, and control umbilicals, which will connect the West White Rose platform to the SeaRose. 

Kvaerner has previously been the main contractor for installation of all of the world’s largest concrete platforms. Under the contract with Husky, Kvaerner will perform engineering, analysis, planning and execution of marine operations related to tow and installation of the CGS. At its final location offshore on the Grand Banks, Kvaerner will be responsible for installing the concrete gravity structure on the seabed.
