Marketex Offshore Constructions starts up Johan Sverdrup Phase2. The company will built 3 Integrated Template Structures, which will serve as foundations for Subsea Production Systems on Norwegian Continental Shelf. Marketex Offshore Constructions will also deliver several other steel structures within project scope of work.
Ruslan Diduhh, Board Member of Marketex Offshore Constructions, noted that the project’s purpose is to increase oil recovery and production efficiency of the large Johan Sverdrup oilfield in the North Sea.
According to him, one of the project key-success drivers will be efficient HSE system established during project execution, supported by own employees and all sub-contractors. He adds, that “to achieve this, we, together with Equinor, TechnipFMC and Agility Subsea Fabrication, will breathe new life into the “Always Safely Home!” campaign with a goal to remind everyone that HSE role in the project cannot be ignored otherwise we will suffer the consequences”.
He holds that the factors affecting the project outcome, such as project risk management, team motivation and mutual respect, simply can’t be ignored. “Undoubtedly, the key to success is job-proved technical solutions backed by innovation, as well as satisfaction from the working process and from attaining performance targets,” summed up the member of the Board of Marketex Offshore Constructions.
It is worth mentioning that the Johan Sverdrup oil field is located in the North Sea, 150 kilometers from the Norwegian city of Stavanger. It is one of the five largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf. Its resources are estimated at 2.2–3.2 billion barrels.
The first phase of construction began in 2016, and installation of subsea equipment was completed in 2018. The first oil reached the Mongstad terminal just a few days after beginning of production. Last year, Marketex Offshore Constructions shipped a part of onshore pipeline system to the Mongstad terminal.
