    Heavy lifts completed for Visund

    Projects and Operations // August 5, 2005
    Two modules weighing a total of 600 tonnes were lifted onto Statoil's Visund production floater in the Tampen area of the North Sea towards the end of July.

    The gas compression and export units were installed with the aid of the Thialf crane barge.

    The latter will ensure that the platform has the equipment and facilities needed to transport up to 15 million cubic metres of gas per day from the field, starting this autumn.

    Gas injection capacity is also being expanded with the aid of the project in order to improve oil recovery from the Visund reservoir.
