World’s largest crane vessel lifts Wintershall Dea’s Nova topside module

first_imgThe world’s largest crane vessel, Sleipnir, has lifted Wintershall Dea’s Nova field topside module from the Rosenberg WorleyParsons yard in Stavanger, Norway. The German oil company began a new Nova subsea campaign earlier this week with the installation of two manifolds in the templates on the seabed. To remind, Neptune awarded a contract to Rosenberg WorleyParsons for construction and installation of the Nova topside module on the Gjøa platform back in May 2018. First steel for the project was cut back in November 2018. The Nova field, operated by Wintershall Dea, is developed as asubsea tie-back connecting two templates to our Gjøa platform. The Nova field is located inthe Norwegian North Sea, 120 kilometres northwest of Bergen. The expectedrecoverable reserves from the field are around 80 boe, of which the majoritywill be oil. The Nova field is expected to come on stream in 2021. In August 2019, Wintershall Dea completed the installation of the subsea pipelines and umbilicals for the Nova project. Neptune Energy, the partner in the Nova field, said via its social media channels on Friday that Sleipnir was sailing towards Neptune’s Gjøa platform in the North Sea where it would be installed. When it comes to the project’s previous milestones, Wintershall Dea in May 2019 installed two subsea templates on the ocean floor in Norway, marking a major milestone for the Nova project. Wintershall Dea holds a 45per cent share in the Nova project. Other project partners are Capricorn, SpiritEnergy with 20 per cent each, and Edison Norge with the remaining 15 per cent.last_img read more

For the love of dog sledding at the Arctic Winter Games

It’s just so they don’t poop on the trail.”However, some issues came up they couldn’t account for.A minimum of four teams are needed for dog sledding at the games, according to the official rules.In 2016, host Greendland didn’t offer the sport.But it appears the games are making an exception this year with only two teams entered.“We are already prepared, we already paid, we got sponsors, we got all this stuff to do, you can’t just cancel it at the last minute,” said Scott [email protected]last_img read more
