Thursday, April 25, 2013

Hertel Offshore signed a €70 million contract with Hyundai Heavy Industries for the engineering, design and construction (EPC) of the new accommodation for Statoil’s Aasta Hansteen platform.

 

This is another big Norwegian contract for Hertel Offshore and follows on from the award for Statoil’s Valemon Living Quarter (LQ) project in 2011 and the Shell Norge Draugen Additional Living Quarter project in 2012, both currently under construction in the Rotterdam facility. The project is on a lump sum EPC basis and will draw on the in-house capabilities of Hertel Offshore. Work has already started and delivery is scheduled for April 2015. Design will be based on the stringent Norsok standards and Statoil requirements. Several Hertel innovations will be used including prefab cabins to facilitate an efficient construction process.


 
The Aasta Hansteen Living Quarter will be made of steel and will accommodate 108 persons. The five storey building weighs approx. 2,600 tons and will be fully equipped with everything required for offshore operations, such as galley, recreational area, medical room, control room and heli deck.



The Aasta Hansteen gas field is located on Blocks 6706/12, 6707/10, roughly 186 miles (300 kilometers) from land in 4,265 feet (1,300 meters) of water in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. Statoil serves as the operator, holding a 75% interest; OMV holds 15%; and ConocoPhillips holds the remaining 10% interest.
