Monday August 6, 2018
Dragados Offshore has delivered the 7,600 tons-steel jacket for the living quarter platform to be installed at Equinor’s (previously Statoil) Johan Sverdrup field project off Norway. The sail-away of the LQ Jacket took place last 30th of July from the North Pier of our yard in Puerto Real, Cádiz (Spain).
The Johan Sverdrup Field is located on the southern Utsira High in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. It lies at water depths ranging between 112-116 m and is located approximately 140km off the Norwegian coast.
Dragados Offshore’s scope of work included Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC), preservation, load out, transportation grillage, sea-fastening and sail-away preparations for transport to the final offshore location of the Johan Sverdrup field. This 4 legged lifted jacket will have an approximate total weight of 7,600 tons, a top of Jacket geometry of 40m x 28m and bottom of Jacket geometry of 45m x 45m, with a design life of 50 years.
The project was completed before the scheduled date and with no incident or accident during the project duration.
