Boskalis inks Johan Sverdrup deal

April 1 - Royal Boskalis Westminster has secured a USD40 million contract to transport topside modules for the Johan Sverdrup project from South Korea to Norway.

A Dockwise Type I heavy transport vessel will transport two topside modules, which have a total weight of 20,000 tonnes, for the riser platform. A third 6,000-tonne module will be transported to Norway on a Dockwise Type II ship.

Dockwise Vanguard will execute the delivery of one topside for the Johan Sverdrup processing platform during the first half of 2019. Following its arrival in Norway, the module will be offloaded in a fjord near Stavanger.

Johan Sverdrup, located approximately 150 km offshore Stavanger, Norway, is one of the five biggest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf with expected resources of between 1.7 and 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent. It is a joint development by Statoil, Lundin Norway, Petoro, Det norske oljeselskap and Maersk Oil.
