Aibel secures Johan Sverdrup bridge option
Equinor has awarded Aibel the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract for the final bridge on the Johan Sverdrup field.

The 100-meter bridge (YB005) will connect the P2 Process Platform with the Riser Platform (RP) at the field and weighs around 1,350 metric tons. The contract was included as an option in Aibel’s initial contract for the Johan Sverdrup P2 Topside awarded by Equinor in April 2018 and has an estimated value of approx. NOK 200 million.

“This marks another important contract for Aibel at the Johan Sverdrup field. By awarding us the seventh consecutive contract to one of Norway’s most important industrial projects it confirms that Equinor is satisfied with our previous project deliveries and the ongoing work. We highly appreciate being given yet another opportunity to continue our good collaboration and are thoroughly committed to successfully deliver all of our ongoing commitments to Equinor,” says Nils Arne Hatleskog, EVP Field Development & Offshore Wind in Aibel.

Aibel’s earlier awards on the Johan Sverdrup field are Drilling Platform EPC (JSDP), Power from Shore Phase 1 (JSPfS), Offshore Hook-up JSDP, Offshore Hook-up JSLQ & JSP1, P2 Process Platform EPC (JSP2) and Power from Shore Phase 2.

The work with the bridge will be organized under the ongoing P2 project led by project director Stig Jessen.

“The design work in Asker is already well underway while the construction phase in Aibel’s yard in Thailand will start in the middle of 2020. The finished bridge is scheduled for delivery at our Haugesund yard in the end of 2021 together with the 23,000 tons P2 platform deck. The timing of the bridge construction is perfect as it comes on the tail end of the ongoing construction work in Thailand,” Jessen says.

The bridge is part of the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup project. This includes the jacket-based processing platform P2, modifications to RP and to the field centre and phase 2 of the onshore power plant at Haugsneset (PfSP2). These developments will expand production capacity from 440,000 barrels of oil per day to 660,000 barrels of oil per day. Production start for phase 2 of the field is expected Q4 2022.
