Johan Sverdrup drilling platform
The Tanzania Ministry of Energy and Minerals announced that the Mdalasini-1 exploration well drilled by Statoil (Operator) has resulted in a new natural gas discovery offshore Tanzania.
2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract by Statoil for tieback conductor, platform conductor and surface riser engineering analysis on the Johan Sverdrup field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. 2H had already conducted engineering studies for Statoil to support wellhead specification on the Johan Sverdrup development.
The field extends over 200 km2 on the Utsira High, in a water depth of 110 - 120 m. It is one of the largest oilfields on the Norwegian continental shelf, and is expected to come onstream in late 2019. Phase 1 of the development consists of four bridge-linked platforms, as well as three subsea water injection templates.
