On behalf of the license partners in Krafla, Gina Krog, Asterix, and Gassco at Kårstø, Equinor has signed contracts with Aibel on Nov. 23 worth around NOK five billion (US$557 million), including options. Aibel estimates the contracts and options to require 3500 person-years in total.

Signed in a ceremony at Aibel’s premises at Forus, the contracts indicate high activity in Norway for several years ahead.

Aibel has been awarded a contract for FEED for the unmanned processing platform at the Krafla field. The award is a continuation of the pre-FEED contract they were awarded in 2020. The study will form the basis for tying an unmanned platform to the Aker BP-operated platform on the NOA field. The study is valued at just above NOK 180 million (US$20 million).
