CGG Wins Johan Sverdrup Contract

Subsurface Imaging, part of CGG’s Geoscience division, has been awarded a contract by Equinor for the processing of seismic data from the Johan Sverdrup Permanent Reservoir Monitoring (PRM) system in the North Sea, CGG announced on Tuesday.Managed out of CGG’s Oslo office and located inside Equinor’s offices in Stavanger, a dedicated team of CGG processing experts, working together with Equinor, will deliver time-lapse 4D images to the Johan Sverdrup asset team within days of acquisition. By analyzing these ‘snapshots’ of the reservoir during production, Equinor geoscientis

NKT to Supply Shore Power Cables for Equinor

NKT has been awarded the turnkey project from Equinor for the 132 kV high-voltage cable connecting the oil and gas platforms Johan Sverdrup 2 and Gina Krog.Equinor has selected NKT as the turnkey supplier for the high-voltage cable project connecting the Norwegian offshore platforms in the North Sea. The order has a value of approximately €29 million in market prices (approximately €25 million in std. metal prices) and comprises supply and installation of 62 kilometers of a 132 kV AC XLPE high-voltage power cable solution.Connecting the platforms allows Equinor to power Gina Krog from shore

Pioneering Spirit Gets a Scrub Down

;s largest vessel, Pioneering Spirit, received a robotic hull cleaning during a recent port call in Rotterdam.The Allseas owned multipurpose vessel, which is on a temporary break from Nord Stream 2 pipelaying activities, made a stop in Rotterdam to prepare for upcoming topsides lift works at the giant Johan Sverdrup project offshore Norway. While in port, a robotic Fleet Cleaner vehicle cleaned the 382-meter-long vessel's hull despite stormy weather, cold temperatures and wind force 7 Bft. Although the storm increased turbulence in the water, causing almost zero underwater visibility, the Fleet

Pioneering Spirit Shifts to the North Sea

vessel, Pioneering Spirit, will take a temporary pause from Nord Stream 2 pipelaying activities in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone to perform planned platform lift work in the North Sea.The Allseas-owned vessel, which in 2018 installed the 22,000 t drilling platform topsides for Equinor’s Johan Sverdrup development on the Norwegian continental shelf, will now return to the field to install the 26,000 t processing platform topsides and the 18,000 t living quarters platform topsides. This third-party engagement was already stipulated in Nord Stream 2's contract with Allseas signed in April

Enhanced Seismic Monitoring at Johan Sverdrup

Cabled subsea instrumentation will help increase the accuracy of time-lapse seismic data for Norwegian energy firm Equinor at the giant Johan Sverdrup oil field in the North Sea, about 87 miles west of Stavanger, Norway.From first production at the development, Equinor plans to use seafloor based seismic cable permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM) technology from Sonardyne International Ltd. to observe what is happening in the reservoir over time to help maximize recovery rates.While PRM technologies increase the amount and quality of data that operators have about their reservoirs, processing it can
