SNC-Lavalin to Perform Detailed Design Work on Gina Krog Jacket

HFG Engineering Europe B.V. (HFGE) awarded SNC-Lavalin a contract to carry out part of the detailed design of the jacket for Statoil's Gina Krog, formerly Dagny field, development in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

The engineering project will be executed as a joint effort of HFGE and SNC-Lavalin. Work on the 16,000-tone, barge-launched jacket is set to commence immediately.

"We worked with HFGE on the record-breaking Valemon jacket for Statoil, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to support them once again," said Hafez Aghili, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, SNC-Lavalin UK, in a released statement. "This most recent award is a testament to the expertise of our offshore engineering team for both lifted and barge-launched jackets."

Gina Krog, an oil, gas and condensate field located on Block 15/5, will be developed using a fixed platform tied into the Sleipner field for gas export with oil offloaded to shuttle tankers. The field was discovered in 2008, commenced development in 2012 and is expected to come online in the first quarter of 2017.

The field has resources in the range of 35 million cubic meters per day, and the recoverable oil resources can be increased substantially assuming that gas injection is selected in the development solution, according to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
