Derrick@ Partners with new distributor in Norway for Statfjord A Shaker Upgrade

May 5, 2020 – Houston, TX. Archer Limited (Archer) has awarded Derrick and their distributor partner, Rotor Offshore, a contract to deliver three Dual Pool® 626 Vapor Extraction (VE) shakers for the flowline and one Dual Pool 616 VE shaker for the cuttings reinjection system on the Statfjord A platform. Statfjord A was originally planned for decommissioning in 2022, but in January 2020, Equinor and its partners chose to extend the life to 2027. Derrick and Rotor Offshore are working closely with the drilling contractor, Archer, to deliver and install the new shakers in late summer 2020.

The change to Derrick Dual Pool 626 VE shakers on Statfjord A will mark the sixth consecutive time that Equinor has selected Dual Pool 626 VE for a platform drilling facility upgrade. It will also standardize the flowline shakers on all three Statfjord field platforms with Statfjord C (2015) and Statfjord B (2019) having already been equipped. The shaker upgrade for Statfjord A, along with previous upgrades to B & C platforms, are part of Equinor’s plan to drill about 100 new wells in the field through 2030.
