first_imgOn behalf of the Johan Sverdrup licence, Statoil on Thursday awarded contracts for two Johan Sverdrup jackets to Kvaerner Verdal and Dragados Offshore S.A.The contract awarded to Kvaerner Verdal has a value of approximately NOK 1 billion ($121.7 million) and covers engineering, fabrication and construction of the steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup processing platform.Weighing 17,700 tonnes, the jacket will be constructed at the yard in Verdal and installed on the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea in the summer of 2018.“This is the third delivery based on the letter of intent signed by Statoil and Kvaerner for delivery of jackets. This means that Kvaerner will deliver 3 of 4 jackets for the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development,” says Kjetel Digre, senior vice president for the Johan Sverdrup development project.“Having documented learning and synergies in connection with existing contracts, Kvaerner has become the supplier of these three jackets and will contribute to improved competitiveness and maximised value creation from Johan Sverdrup,” says Digre.Jan Arve Haugan, Kvaerner’s President & CEO, says: “The contract has been won in international competition and confirms Kvaerner’s position as one of the industry’s leading contractors of steel jacket substructures. The improvements we have implemented the last years enable us to offer new steel substructures to the same price as fifteen years ago. We will at the same time focus on continuing to deliver with safe execution, predictable schedule and agreed quality. The result is that we have a strong competitiveness combined with sound margins. I am pleased that our clients confirm that we are a contractor who offers an attractive combination of technological expertise and cost effectiveness.”Jacket for utility and accommodation platformThe contract awarded to Dragados Offshore S.A. covers engineering, fabrication and construction of the steel jacket for the Johan Sverdrup utility and accommodation platform. Weighing 7,600 tonnes, the jacket will be constructed at the yard in Cadiz. Field installation is scheduled for the summer of 2018.“We are pleased to include Dragados Offshore in the Johan Sverdrup project, which is a complex puzzle requiring precision and quality in all deliveries. We have good experience with Dragados Offshore from construction of the jacket for the Statoil-operated Mariner project. We are looking forward to resuming our good cooperation, and from day one we will focus on utilizing our experience and ensuring the same quality in this Johan Sverdrup assignment,” says Digre.The investment costs in the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development are estimated to be in the order of NOK 117 billion (2015 value) with expected recoverable resources in the range of 1.4 – 2.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent. The ambition is a recovery rate of 70% for Johan Sverdrup.The first phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development will consist of four installations, including a utility and accommodation platform, a processing platform, a drilling platform and a riser platform, as well as three subsea water injection templates.

first_imgHuman rights groups should try to build bridges with lawyers in North Korea – even though such efforts will almost certainly be rebuffed, the International Bar Association conference in Tokyo heard today. Michael Kirby, the retired Australian high court judge who headed the UN’s commission of inquiry into the communist state, told the meeting of the IBA’s human rights committee that lawyers ‘should be reaching out’ to the two official bar associations that exist in North Korea, even though ‘they are going to refuse, time and time again’. Offering free places to conferences might be a way to build person-to-person contact, he said. This would necessarily be a long-term project ‘for when the cloud lifts’ he said. Kirby read harrowing passages from his commission’s hard-hitting report published last May. They were corroborated by an escapee from North Korea, speaking under the name of ‘Mr Lee’, ‘I have seen public executions, starvation, the deaths of children,’ he said. ‘In North Korea we are well aware of what is going on in the government but we have never heard of human rights.’A leading British human rights barrister, Steven Kay QC of 9 Bedford Row, told the meeting that future charges against Pyongyang could include genocide as well as crimes against humanity.This was the conclusion of an independent opinion by international firm Hogan Lovells in June this year, which identified genocide against three identifiable groups, defectors, the so-called ‘hostile class’ and members of proscribed religions. Kirby defended his report’s decision not to make accusations of genocide at this stage. ‘Our approach was to take the rule of law approach,’ he said. He hinted at difficulties with the ‘very 1948′ definition of genocide, which excludes attacks on political groups. ‘We have so much evidence of crimes against humanity and that’s enough. That triggers the process of the [International Criminal Court] and that’s what we should be concentrating on.’ A UN statement on North Korea is likely to appear by December – but could face a veto by China. Kirby said that this is not a foregone conclusion, pointing out that Peking had used its veto only 10 times since becoming a Security Council member. Using it to protect North Korea would fit badly with Chinese ambitions to play a role on the world stage, he said.  More than 6,000 lawyers from around the world are attending the IBA annual conference in Tokyo.last_img read more

first_imgChallenger firm Keystone Law today announced its intention to float on the London Stock Exchange. Shares will begin trading on the AIM market on 27 November; the firm hopes to raise £15m from a placing price of 160p per share.The flotation is designed to increase brand recognition and enhance the group’s future growth potential, the firm said. Net proceeds of the placing of around £9m will redeem outstanding loans and leave the group debt-free. Existing shareholders who sell at the placing price stand to gain a total of £5m.James Knight (pictured), chief executive of Keystone Law Group plc, said: ‘Our decision to list on the London Stock Exchange will provide us with the most resilient and stable platform to support our ambitious growth plans long into the future. The UK legal services market is the second largest in the world and I believe the Keystone model is well placed to take advantage of this significant opportunity.’Launched in 2002 as Lawyers Direct and rebranded as Keystone Law in 2008, the business is designed around lawyers working remotely under one brand and accessing core back-office functions from a central facility.The firm’s 250 lawyers have no fixed remuneration, but receive between 60% and 75% of fees once Keystone has been paid for the work. Keystone reported annual revenue for 2016/17 of £25.6m and £2.1m profits.The firm converted to an alternative business structure in October 2013 and secured a £3.15m cash injection from private equity firm Root Capital the following year.On admission, the company will issue more than 31m shares, with Panmure Gordon Limited acting as financial adviser, nominated adviser and broker.Firms are allowed to seek external investment through the 2007 Legal Services Act. City firm Gateley was the first existing law firm to float on the stock exchange back in 2015, with London firm Gordon Dadds making the same move in August this year.last_img read more
