KBR Announces Sail-Away of Johan Sverdrup ULQ Topsides

Source: 3/18/2019, Location: Europe

KBR, Inc. announced the sail-away of the Johan Sverdrup Utilities and Living Quarter (ULQ) Platform for Equinor (formerly Statoil) in the North Sea.

In 2015, KBR in a joint venture with Kvaerner (K2JV), signed an EPC contract with Equinor for the complete delivery of Utilities and Living Quarters platform topsides in the Johan Sverdrup field development in the Norwegian continental shelf. This is one of the largest ULQ platforms in the world and will also serve as the field center for the Johan Sverdrup development.

KBR's London Office, supported by its Jakarta office and Kvaerner, led the detailed engineering, design and procurement scope for the utility module upon signing the contract with Equinor. The accommodation module was subcontracted as an EPC lump sum subcontract to Apply Leirvik.

The complete topside was assembled at Kvaerner Stord with KBR providing engineering and procurement support during the construction and mechanical completion phase through its team collocated at Kvaerner Stord. KBR was also actively engaged in providing onshore commissioning assistance to Equinor to meet its ambitious targets of onshore commissioning and early habitat of the platform offshore.

"I am proud that KBR, working as a joint venture with Kvaerner, has contributed to this ground breaking field development for Equinor," said Stuart Bradie, KBR CEO and President. "To have safely completed this project to such high standards of quality, on time and in budget is a testament to the highly skilled teams at KBR, Kvaerner, Leirvik and Equinor that worked collaboratively through-out the project execution."
