Kværner Verdal gets Johan Sverdrup jacket contract

Kvaerner has signed the final contract for delivery of the drilling platform jacket to the Johan Sverdrup field. In June 2014, Kvaerner signed a frame agreement for delivery of steel jacket substructures for future Statoil projects. At the same time, LOI were signed for the steel jackets for the Johan Sverdrup riser platform and drilling platform. 

With the two contracts for delivery of steel jackets to Johan Sverdrup in order backlog, Kvaerner Verdal has a solid and predictable foundation as basis for continuous improvement and long-term planning in connection with further development of Kvaerner in Verdal, says Jan Arve Haugan, Kvaerner’s President & CEO.

The new contract establishes Kvaerner’s position as the market leader for large steel jacket substructures to the North Sea region. The drilling platform jacket is scheduled for delivery in the spring of 2018. The engineering has now started at Kvaerner’s offices in Oslo. Kvaerner Verdal is the contract party, and the project management will be based at the company’s specialised jacket facility in Verdal in Mid-Norway, where fabrication will be executed. Prefabrication will start in the summer of 2016, and assembly will take place from the spring of 2017.
