Eldfisk 2/7 S topside en route to southern North Sea

The Kvaerner ASA-constructed Eldfisk 2/7 S topside, completed in April, has departed the company’s yard in Stord and is en route to the Greater Ekofisk area of the southern North Sea.

Operator ConocoPhillips, which let a 5.5 billion kroner contract for the topside to Kvaerner in 2011, will receive one combined living quarter and utility module, and a combined process and wellhead module for its integrated production platform (OGJ Online, Mar. 18, 2011).

The contract also included the fabrication of two bridges and one bridge support module and a flare, all of which were delivered in 2013 directly to the field from Kvaerner’s subcontractors in Poland.

The topside will be towed to the field and lifted onto the steel jacket substructure in two separate lifts. Kvaerner will then perform the offshore hook-up work to prepare the platform for the start of production. The company said this work has already commenced and will continue through the summer and into the fall.

ConocoPhillips in 2011 also let a 1.3 billion kroner contract for modifying the existing Eldfisk 2/7 A, Eldfisk 2/7 FTP, Eldfisk 2/7 B, and Embla platforms as a consequence of the installation of the Eldfisk 2/7 S platform (OGJ Online, Mar. 23, 2014). Both contracts are part of ConocoPhillips’s Eldfisk II 35-40 billion kroner redevelopment plan.

Eldfisk was discovered in 1970 and has been in production since 1979.
