Ormen Lange/Nyhamna

Project phase 1 and 2

Ormen lange (Project phase 1)

Ormen Lange is the second largest gas field and the largest industrial project ever realized in Norway.

Multiconsult has been involved in development of the onshore gas plant for the Ormen Lange project since 2003 through three large multidiscipline contracts directly for Hydro for the main civil contract, for Aker Kværner for the main installation contract, and for Aker Stord for the gas reception area.

Our work covered the civil and related areas with responsibility to develop, design and engineer all civil and infrastructure for the onshore plant. The work has comprised basic, detail, follow-on engineering and site supervision assistance.
