TONSBERG, NORWAY — Grenland Group has delivered seven subsea structures to Technip for use at the Gjøa field offshore Norway. Technip will use the structures to tie in the Gjøa platform with the subsea systems on the field.
The NOK 40 million (US$6.7 million) contract, which called for the fabrication of structures for the Gjøa development, tie-ins and RFO project, was awarded to Grenland last summer. The total weight of the structures was around 500 tonnes (551 tons) at delivery.
Previously Grenland delivered five large subsea structures with a total weight of more than 1,700 tonnes (1,874 tons) to FMC Technologies for StatoilHydro’s Gjøa project.
StatoilHydro is the development operator of Gjøa, while Gaz de France Norge takes over as production operator when the field comes on stream next year. Gjøa is an oil and condensate field situated north of the Troll field, about 65 kilometers (40.4 miles) southeast of Florø, Norway.
