Norway-based communication systems provider Jotron AS is pleased to announce that the company has entered a frame agreement with Statoil Petroleum AS for the supply of a Public Address & General Alarm (PAGA) system for use on-board a new Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, Johan Castberg.
The Johan Castberg field is located in the Barents Sea, approximately 240km north of Hammerfest, Norway.
The proven volumes in Johan Castberg are estimated at between 400 million and 650 million barrels of oil.
The field production is scheduled to start in 2022 with an estimated operation of 30 years.
The PAGA system is scheduled for delivery in 2018 and has been designed to ensure easy operation and safety via alarm and message distribution, reliability and fault tolerance and speech intelligibility.
Jotron director of marketing and sales for energy markets Leif Morten Ramberg said: “Jotron is proud to be one of the suppliers to the Johan Castberg development. Jotron recently supplied the PAGA systems to the Johan Sverdrup projects.
“We look forward to continue working with Statoil Petroleum AS on this project and participate in the future of Norwegian offshore operations.”
Jotron AS has supplied communication systems to the oil and gas industry, and other offshore and onshore applications, since 1979.
After 50 years of focusing on product development, Jotron continues to enhance safety communication both today and in the future.
