Aibel Working on Johan Sverdrup Concept Study



Oil and gas services company Aibel announced Tuesday that it is working on a concept study for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup development.

As part of the study, Aibel's will design a module based solution for a new process platform at the field centre. The results of the study will form important input in the decision making process for Statoil's choice of concept for the next development phase, according to an Aibel statement.

Aibel EVP of Field Development, Nils Arne Hatleskog, commented in a company release:

"This is a significant assignment. We're proud to be one of key participants to supply the terms for this giant investment. Our work will provide important guidelines for Statoil's choice of its future solution for the phase two development.” 

Aibel's team started working on the concept study in January and will continue throughout June. On average, the study will involve around 35 employees. This is Aibel's third Johan Sverdrup assignment following an EPC contract for the field's drilling platform awarded in February 2015, and an EPC contract for the Haugsneset converter station, which was awarded in October last year.
