WorleyParsons to handle modifications on Edvard Grieg platform

Rosenberg WorleyParsons is set to win a contract from Lundin Norway and licence partners in PL338 to handle modification works on the Edvard Grieg platform in the North Sea. 

Rosenberg WorleyParsons is set to win a contract from Lundin Norway and licence partners in PL338 to handle modification work on the Edvard Grieg platform in the North Sea.

Following modifications, the offshore platform will be capable of receiving and processing oil and gas from nearby fields.

The first discoveries being tied into Edvard Grieg are Luno II and Rolvsnes.

Located 19km south of Edvard Grieg, Luno II will be developed as a subsea installation with a pipeline back to the platform, with the plan for development and operation (PDO) set to be submitted early next year.

Initially, for Rolvsnes, a long-term well test will be conducted where oil and gas are processed on Edvard Grieg.

According to WorleyParsons, the so-called EPC contract will consist of engineering services, purchasing and construction work offshore.

“It will enable us to achieve profitable development of smaller fields in the area.”

Engineering for prefabrication of steel structures, pipelines and other necessary material is expected to begin with immediate effect, while offshore installation work is set to start during the first half of next year.

Works are scheduled for full completion in the first quarter of 2021.

Lundin Norway managing director Kristin Færøvik said: “The work to prepare the Edvard Grieg platform to receive oil and gas from nearby fields is very important for us.

“This will ensure both good utilisation of the infrastructure we already have in the platform and export pipeline, and it will enable us to achieve profitable development of smaller fields in the area.”

Designed as a field centre, the Edvard Grieg platform will enable processing oil and gas from other fields in the area.

The platform processes hydrocarbons from the Ivar Aasen field. Once these modifications are complete, the platform will be able to handle the Lundin Norway-operated satellite fields Luno II and Rolvsnes.
