Lifting over launching, how we installed a 12,050 metric ton jacket

In June, 2021, Sleipnir lifted Equinor's 12,050 metric ton P2 jacket, which was the heaviest jacket in the world so far to be lifted directly from the transport barge. This installation method made it possible to reduce the jacket weight considerably, compared to a more traditional launch jacket, resulting in significant fabrication cost savings.

Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 development

Johan Sverdrup is the biggest field development on the Norwegian continental shelf since the 1980s. The Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 development will capture the full potential of the huge Johan Sverdrup oil field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The new processing platform, which will be the second of its kind at the field center, will make for a total of five platforms when the development is completed.

 

Once again, Heerema delivered with precision and safety.
