Equinor and the Johan Sverdrup licence have awarded a jacket contract for the processing platform for Johan Sverdrup phase 2 to Kværner.
The contract value is around NOK 900 million.
“With this contract, Kværner and the Norwegian supplier industry has once again proved it is competitive in an international market. In the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development more than 70% of the contracts were awarded to suppliers in Norway. With this contract to Kværner, we expect an even higher share of Norwegian suppliers in the second phase of the development,” says Trond Bokn, senior vice president for the Johan Sverdrup development.
This is an EPC contract covering engineering, procurement and construction of the steel substructure for the second processing platform for the Johan Sverdrup field. The 12,300-tonne substructure will be constructed at Kværner’s yard in Verdal and installed at the Johan Sverdrup field during the spring of 2021.
