Edvard Grieg generates significant socio-economic benefits for Norway
Operation of the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea is expected to provide around 800 jobs annually, according to estimates prepared for Lundin Norway by Menon Economics. This illustrates that the field will yield significant socio-economic benefits far beyond the revenues from actual petroleum production.
Efficient precision drilling at Edvard Grieg
The Lundin Norway team has broken new ground with the last two production wells on the Edvard Grieg field. Thanks to innovative thinking and new design, the A19 well could be drilled in a type of reservoir where no horizontal wells have been drilled before on the Norwegian shelf. Extremely high precision drilling made it possible to navigate through the narrow A7 well, in some places only 1 metre thick, to reach the reservoir located almost 2 kilometres below the seabed.
Johan Sverdrup field centre is taking shape
The first steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup field centre left the shipyard in Verdal Sunday, and set a course for the North Sea. This is the first part of the field centre that will be visible above the sea surface. Development of the Johan Sverdrup field is one of the largest industrial projects ever undertaken in Norway.
Good ideas paid off
“An unforgettable moment!” This is how the three winners of Lundin’s ‘idea competition’ summarised their trip to Edvard Grieg. A visit to the platform was the first prize in the contest.
