Statoil is today awarding, on behalf of the Njord license, a contract to Aibel for upgrading of the Njord Bravo floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessel in the Norwegian Sea.
The contract value is around NOK 1.3 billion.
“We are pleased to award Aibel this contract today. After several good deliveries, Aibel has proven that the company has both the expertise and ability to handle this type of complex projects,” says head of project development in Statoil, Torger Rød.
The storage vessel will be prepared for extended operation of the Njord and Hyme fields, as well as tie-in of two new field developments in the Norwegian Sea, Bauge and Fenja.
The job involves extensive upgrading and maintenance of the vessel, in addition to installation of equipment on board for reducing emissions to air (VOC facility).
