Lundin Petroleum has completed installation of the topside modules on the Edvard Greig field.
The company said four modules had to be lifted into place on the pre-installed jacket – the main deck frame, utility and living quarters module and the processing modules and the flare boom with a total weight of 22,000 tonnes.
Heerema’s heavy lift vessel Thialf carried out the lift operation.
Final offshore hook-up and commissioning of modules has now begun with production expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Lundin said two of the production wells have been drilled and completed and are ready to be tied-in to the platform.
Wintershall Norway and Statoil are both partners with a 15% share in the asset while OMV Norway has a 20% share.
Lundin is the operator with a 50% working interest.
Earlier this month, the full-scale of Shell’s incredible Prelude FLNG project began to take shape as the last of the topside modules were moved into place.
The oil giant has captured footage of the moment the module was safely installed.
