Kvaerner: Johan Sverdrup platform sets new completion standard
Operator Equinor and the other licensees, KBR and Kvaerner celebrate the sailaway of the platform, with a symbolic release of the mooring lines of the platform. In the following days it will be towed out of the dry dock at Kvaerner’s advanced facility at Stord and transported to field by the heavy lift vessel Pioneering Spirit.

The topside for the Johan Sverdrup Utility and Living Quarter (ULQ) platform was mechanically complete as early as October 2018. Through the winter, all systems have been thoroughly tested and made ready for sailaway. The topside was formally handed over to operator Equinor already on 15 February at 12:00 o’clock, exactly as agreed when the initial contract was signed three and a half years ago.

“The contract was signed on 8 June 2015, in the middle of the oil and gas downturn. We entered the project with high ambitions with regards to safety, productivity and cost improvements. I am proud to say that the joint team between Equinor, Kvaerner and KBR has met those goals for the project,” says Kvaerner CEO Karl-Petter Løken.

The advanced control room and various systems inside the Utility and Living Quarter platform makes it the nerve centre for the entire Johan Sverdrup field centre. In addition, the platform contains a 560 bed accommodation module.

The platform is one of four platforms of the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development. The platform is a complete delivery from the Kvaerner-KBR joint venture, with Leirvik AS as a key supplier of the accommodation module. A close cooperation between Equinor, KBR, Kvaerner and Leirvik has been key to the successful delivery of the platform.

“The project has met every milestone along the way and is a text book example of good cooperation between client and contractors. We have delivered a platform that is as close to plug and play as it gets, and that is in large parts due to the open and constructive dialogue between all parties of the project,” says Project Director Jan Tore Elverhaug.

The Johan Sverdrup ULQ is one of the first Norwegian platforms to be transported to field by Pioneering Spirit. The large lifting capacity of the vessel enables field installation in one single lift, making it possible to complete and test almost all parts of the topside while still at the yard. The project will now move into the next phase with hardly any carry-over work, which in turn has a positive impact on cost and HSSE.

The contract had a value for Kvaerner and KBR of NOK 6.7 billion. At peak, the project involved around 2000 persons, from Kvaerner, KBR, Leirvik and subcontractors.

Kvaerner has utilized the project to implement a wide range of improvements, not least a building method tailormade for the large Storen assembly crane at Stord. The method has enabled larger sections, more work on the ground and fewer integration zones.
