Aker Solutions, Kvaerner and Equinor celebrate the start of the fabrication for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup development. This is Norway’s largest industrial project in three decades.

Aker Solutions has worked closely with Kvaerner in a 50/50 joint venture to support Equinor’s Johan Sverdrup Riser Platform modification project since May 2018. The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a 5,000 metric-ton utility module, as well as modifications of the field center and integration of a second processing platform.

The utility module will be built at Kvaerner's yard at Stord. The prefabrication for the module will be done by various subcontractors in Poland. Aker Solutions' yard in Egersund will perform the prefabrication for the offshore integration.

'We are proud to deliver this giant industrial project together with Kvaerner and Equinor,' said Knut Sandvik, executive vice president, greenfield projects at Aker Solutions.

Peak manning for Aker Solutions will be approx. 300 employees.

Johan Sverdrup

Johan Sverdrup is estimated to hold 2.2 billion to 3.2 billion barrels of oil equivalents. It is expected to produce up to 660,000 barrels of oil equivalents a day when fully developed in 2022, equal to about a quarter of the current domestic output. Production is scheduled to start in 2019. It is predicted to last for about 50 years.

Equinor is the operator for the development, which spans over three licenses. Other partners include Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP and Total.

From FEED to Installation – Following the Development of Johan Sverdrup

Aker Solutions provided feasibility and concept studies for the Johan Sverdrup discovery in 2012-2013, supporting the partnership in developing a robust development concept. In late 2013, the company won a portfolio framework agreement from Equinor to provide engineering services, procurement and management assistance (EPMA) for the first phase of the development. The front-end engineering design (FEED) was executed in 2014, engaging one of the largest FEED teams ever assembled by the company to detail out the four platform field center concept.

In 2018, Aker Solutions completed the FEED for phase two of the development, including the module and work to integrate this with the riser platform. This work was secured in 2017 as part of a 10-year framework engineering agreement for Johan Sverdrup that was awarded to Aker Solutions in 2013.
