Statpipe Filter Project (SFP)

Detail engineering and Follow-on

The Kårstø processing plant in Nord-Rogaland in Norway is the largest of its kind in Europe. The plant plays a key role in the transport and processing of gas and condensate/light oil from major sites on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The project introduces a Mercury Removal unit in the Statpipe pipeline to deal with possible future increases in mercury in rich gas from offshore supply lines. Increased level of mercury content has been reported in the rich gas Statpipe pipeline and are also expected to be in Johan Sverdrup rich gas which will be tied into Statpipe in Q4 2019.

Multiconsult have performed civil engineering for the project, comprising detail engineering, follow-on engineering and site supervision assistance.

Scope of work

Multiconsult have performed civil engineering for the Statpipe Filter Project (SFP). The works included design of all foundations, design of underground infrastructure and verification of existing bridges. The new process facilities are located in an area of the Kårstø plant with dense existing underground infrastructure. As a result, large amount of work was undertaken to map and re-route the existing underground infrastructure. Foundations where optimized to reduce the need of underground re-routing.
