This is the 7th living quarter module Statoil has ordered with LEIRVIK MT, the first was Gullfaks A which was delivered in 1985. Statoil has per today 12 living quarters in operation which have been delivered by LMT. (Statfjord A/B/C were ordered by Mobil, Snorre A/B by Saga and Visund by Norsk Hydro).

The contract value is more than 450 Million NOK.
