The Norwegian company Aibel has been awarded with a letter of intent for engineering, procurement and construction of the deck for the process platform in the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup developement.
The Johan Sverdrup is an oil field 140 kilometers west of Stavanger and one of the five largest oil fields in the North Sea.
But although the initial installment will take place in the North Sea, the Thai department of the Aibel will also contribute to the construction. Aibel has an engineering office in Thailand, and in the peak the project will involve around 3.500 employees.
Naturally, the CEO of Aibel is very satisfied with the news:
“This is a day of celebration for Aibel as we have received the ultimate confirmation that we have both the required expertise and competitiveness to deliver such a large and important project. The organisation has gained substantial expertise from the delivery of the Johan Sverdrup drilling platform, which is currently undergoing completion at our yard in Haugesund. We are looking forward to continuing realisation of the next phase of the Sverdrup field along with Statoil,” says CEO and President of Aibel, Mads Andersen.
