LONDON – Aker BP has contracted ABL Group to provide marine warranty survey services for the Yggdrasil and Valhall PWP-Fenris development projects in the Norwegian North Sea.
ABL’s division in Stavanger will supply services related to transportation and installation operations, due to take place between 2024 and 2026.
Yggdrasil is a multi-field, 55-well development in the Hugin, Fulla and Munin licenses, between the Alvheim and Oseberg field centers, and 160 km west of Kollsnes in water depths of 110-120 m.
Facilities will comprise the Hugin A processing platform with well area and living quarters, the Hugin B normally unmanned wellhead platform, the Munin unmanned production platform, nine subsea templates, pipelines and umbilicals.
Valhall PWP-Fenris involves adding a new central platform, PWP, at the Valhall field, bridge-linked to the existing Valhall PH platform; and an unmanned platform at the Fenris field, 50 km to the north.
Production from Fenris will be tied-in to the new PWP platform.
Both developments are pending approval from the Norwegian Parliament.
Peter Kingsland, managing director of ABL’s Norwegian operation, said: “Our key role will be to help ensure that all transportation and offshore installation work is conducted safely and smoothly.
“Although each project is different, we bring with us several decades of experience from similar offshore projects into these area developments.”
