Kvaerner to Hook-Up Eldfisk Platform
ConocoPhillips has confirmed options in the Eldfisk 2/7 S topside contract for Kvaerner to perform offshore hook-up and commissioning assistance, as reported in a press release.
In March 2011, ConocoPhillips awarded Kvaerner a contract to perform engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the topside for the Eldfisk 2/7 S platform. The operator has now confirmed options in the contract for the performance of hook-up and commissioning assistance.
Eldfisk, one of the oldest fields in the Norwegian North Sea, has been producing since August 1979. In June 2011, Norwegian authorities granted ConocoPhillips approval to install a new platform for the Eldfisk II project and upgrade existing facilities in the field. The new platform will have a design life of 40 years and a capacity of 70,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
The new topside consists of one combined living quarter and utility module and a combined process and wellhead module, with a total weight of 15,500 tons. The new contract includes the fabrication of two bridges, one bridge support module and a flare.
Offshore activities are schedule to take place in 2013 for hook-up of the bridges and in the second half of 2014 for the topside modules.
