OSLO, Norway – Construction is under way at the Bull Arm yard in St. John’s of the gravity-based structure (GBS) for ExxonMobil’s Hebron platform offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
Kvaerner ASA says the GBS steel skirt installation has been completed and rebar installation in the base slab is proceeding according to plan.
In Europe, Kvaerner expects sail away before mid-year of two jackets it has built for BP’sClair Ridge project west of Shetland.
