Topsides pact let for renamed Luno field

By OGJ editors

Lundin Norway AS has signed a letter of intent with Kvaerner Stord AS serving as an engineering, procurement, and construction contract covering topside installations for a steel platform on Edvard Grieg oil and gas field, previously called Luno, offshore Norway.

Edvard Grieg, in 110 m of water on PL338 in the Norwegian North Sea, encompasses the Luno and Tellus discoveries (OGJ Online, Jan. 19, 2012).

Kvaerner will use units of Aker Solutions as subcontractors for some of the work, which covers the deck frame, utility module, process module, and living quarters.

Lundin expects production to begin in 2015 and reach 90,000 b/d of oil and 1.5 million standard cu m/day of natural gas.

The platform will be designed to handle more than 130,000 b/d of oil and 4 million standard cu m/day of gas in anticipation of the start of output from nearby Draupne field operated by Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA.
