DSME, Aker awarded North Sea Dagny topsides

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Statoil (OSE:STL) has contracted Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) to design and build the topsides for the Dagny platform in the Norwegian North Sea.

Aker Solutions’ staff in Kuala Lumpur, Oslo, and Stavanger will provide detailed engineering and offshore hook-up and commissioning services. Hook-up is scheduled to be performed by Aker’s specialists in Norway in 2016. Total value of the contract is $1.1 billion.

Early this year Statoil submitted a plan for development and operation for the 225 MMboe Dagny field to Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, with total investments estimated at NOK 31 billion ($5.7 billion).

Mærsk Drilling will be responsible for production drilling on Dagny, Heerema Vlissingen will build the platform jacket, and Allseas will handle offshore pipelay.

Contracts for a floating storage and offloading unit, marine operations, and tie-ins will be issued this spring.

Aker Solutions will perform tie-in modifications on Sleipner, which will receive Dagny’s gas. DSME will assign the contract for the platform’s living quarters.
