Norway’s Grenland wins contract for Pluto LNG

Tuesday, 27 November 2007

The Norwegian company said the contract was worth up to 75 million Norwegian crowns ($14 million). The subsea structures to be fabricated and assembled by Grenland will have a total weight of more than 700 tonnes and will be delivered around the first quarter of 2009.


Norway’s Grenland is a leading fabricator of subsea structures, process packages and modules. It has eight fabrication and assembly yards in Norway and 600 employees.


The $10-billion Pluto project is for an initial single LNG production Train with output of 4.8 million tonnes per annum at 100 percent capacity and connected by a 180-kilometres, 36-inch offshore pipeline to a platform in 85 metres of water.


The Pluto platform will be connected to five subsea big bore wells on the Pluto field, with first gas to be produced in late 2010.
