Statoil with Total & Det Norske contract DSME to build the topsides for the Dagny platform, with Aker Solutions as a major sub-contractor.

The total contract value is estimated to be NOK 6.1 billion and comprises detailed design, procurement, engineering services, construction, hook-up and commissioning. The assignment will begin immediately and will be completed in the first quarter of 2017.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has been assigned to design and construct the topsides and Aker Solutions in Stavanger and Oslo, Norway and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will be close partners in the detailed engineering services and offshore hook-up and commissioning.

"Dagny is one of Statoil's new, major developments with an estimated 225 million barrels of oil equivalent," says Ivar Aasheim, senior vice president for field development on the Norwegian continental shelf. "This shows how important it is to explore and develop fields in mature areas with infrastructure in place. This field development is tied to Sleipner and will help to extend its lifetime for many years to come."

Mærsk Drilling was awarded the contract for production drilling on Dagny in 2012. In January 2013 it was announced that Heerema Vlissingen was to build Dagny's platform jacket.

The contract for pipelaying has been given to Allseas. Based on design studies performed by various Norwegian and international suppliers, the contracts for a floating storage and offloading unit (FSO), marine operations and tie-ins will be awarded in the course of this spring.

Aker Solutions has also been awarded the contract for tie-in modifications on Sleipner which will receive gas from the Dagny field. The contract for building the living quarters will be awarded by DSME.
