Equinor awards NOK700-million Johan Sverdrup contract to Kaefer Energy


STAVANGER -- Equinor awards a contract for services within insulation, scaffolding and surface treatment (ISO) on  Johan Sverdrup field to Kaefer Energy AS. Awarded under an already existing framework agreement for operations the contract has an estimated value of more than NOK700 million. This includes both ordinary operations and maintenance work, and work associated with Phase 2 of the project.

Kaefer Energy AS was selected as an ISO supplier based on high-quality performance under the existing framework agreement, combined with their competitiveness. In addition, the supplier has distinguished itself through good HSE work and a clear improvement agenda.

“The ISO disciplines contribute to safer and more efficient operations on our facilities.
