Samsung Heavy Industries successfuly completed the North Sea bound offshore platform within the scheduled delivery date in the original contract.
SHI revealed on February 25th 2018 that one of the two offshore platform topside modules, worth KRW 1.18 trillion together, left its Geoje shipyard. SHI-built ‘Johan Sverdrup’ topsides are for a 26,000-ton process platform and a 23,000-ton riser platform.
The newly left topside is for the riser platform. It will arrive in Norway after about six weeks to be integrated on top of the already installed jacket. The process platform is to leave Geoje in December 2018.
The riser platform is for Johan Sverdrup field located 140km west to the shore near Stavanger.
