North Sea's Valemon Platform Successfully Hooked Up
Wood Group Mustang Norway (WGMN) reported Tuesday that the hook-up of Statoil's Valemon platform in the Norwegian North Sea has been successfully completed on schedule.
WGMN worked with Korean contractor Samsung Heavy Industries to provide detailed engineering support for the topsides in addition to delivering the flare boom and providing hook-up and commissioning assistance.
WGMN President Otto Søberg commented in a company statements:
"The Valemon platform is the first to be delivered directly from a fabricator in Asia to installation offshore on the NCS and is a credit to the Statoil, SHI and WGMN teams that collaborated so well together. Safe, efficient hook-up was critical to bringing the platform on-line successfully and the more than 1,000 people involved in the hook-up process accomplished that with zero lost-time incidents."
