Hebron GBS project

6. mars 2015 kl. 10:30 - 12:00

NPF Oslo/PF Olje and Kvaerner have the pleasure of inviting you to a lunch meeting on Friday 6 March 2015 about the Hebron GBS project.

In 2010, Kvaerner was awarded a FEED and site preparation contract by ExxonMobil Canada Properties for the Hebron GBS, followed by a contract for the full EPC scope in 2012/13 in a joint venture with Peter Kiewit Infrastructure. Construction of the GBS is currently ongoing offshore Newfoundland, where the biggest deep water slip carried out since Gullfaks C in the late 1980’s was successfully completed in October 2014. First oil is anticipated in 2017.

The Hebron oil field is located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s. The field was first discovered in 1980, and is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources. The Hebron co-venturers are ExxonMobil Canada Properties (36%), Chevron Canada Limited (26.7%), Suncor Energy Inc. (22.7%), Statoil Canada (9.7%) and Nalcor Energy (4.9%).

The Hebron field is being developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). The GBS consist of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand sea ice, icebergs and meteorological and oceanographic conditions. It is designed to store approximately 1.2 million barrels of crude oil. The GBS will support an integrated topsides deck that includes living quarters and facilities to perform drilling and production.

Kvaerner is a leading provider of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, and delivers offshore installations and onshore plants for upstream oil and gas production around the world. The company has a long track record for offshore concrete structures, with a series of concrete structures, both fixed and floating designed, constructed and installed on the Norwegian Continental shelf between 1971 and 1993. Recent offshore concrete projects by Kvaerner are substructures for two platforms installed in 2005 east of Sakhalin in Russia for Sakhalin Energy, the Adriatic LNG terminal installed in 2008 outside Venice in Italy, and the Arkutun-Dagi GBS for the Sakhalin-1 project constructed in Nakhodka, Russia and delivered to Exxon Neftegas Limited in June 2012.

We invite you to a lunch meeting where the management of the Hebron GBS project will give us an overview of the Hebron GBS project.

The presentation will be held in English.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The presentation will take place Friday 06 March at 11:30 – 13:00 at Drammensveien 260, Vækerø, Oslo (the building housing Sweco Norge AS and AS Klaveness Chartering at Vækerø), next to Kvaerner’s offices.


Deadline for registration: 5 March at 10:00.

Participating at this event is free.
