  2. 2. About the Project:Project BackgroundThe Valhall platform is located in the North Sea off the coast of Norway and is one of the largest offshorebrownfield projects ever attempted across the globe. The $2.4billion project was to build a newaccommodation/production platform, preserving a proportion of the existing infrastructure which was pendingeventual decommissioning and to stop reservoir subsidence in order to extend field life to 2049.The new production and hotel platform – has a design life of 40 years. It is sized for production of about120,000 barrels of oil and 143million cu ft of gas per day; water handling capability of 200,000bpd; a topsidesweight of some 16,000 tonnes, and jacket weighing in at 7,500 tonnes.Project DetailsWorking with renowned SLP Engineering, Gooding Aluminium were contracted to supply aluminium wallcladding Type WC2, combining perforated and plain aluminium sheets, for the atrium accommodationfacilities module(Perforated Aluminium Sheet GA P1632 & Plain Aluminium Sheet GA 1539).The living quarters house 180 people, they are powered from offshore for additional energy efficiency,but more importantly, the Gooding Aluminium lightweight, power coated finish perforated sheets weigh1.38 kg/m2, and the plain aluminium sheets are 5.5 kg/m2. The lightweight nature of the panels helpedto bring the platform within the specified weight limit, contributing to the ongoing subsidence controlprogramme.In total, over 950 aluminium panels were supplied, manufactured and delivered in 4 stages. Each stagedelivered ahead of schedule and once again celebrated Gooding Aluminium’s enviable 100% qualitycontrol, whereupon no panels were rejected.Gooding Aluminium Limited1 British WharfLandmann WayLondon SE14 5RSUnited KingdomT: + 44 (0)20 8692 2255 F: + 44 (0)20 8469 0031 Email: sales@goodingalum.com
  3. 3. Aluminium Awareness Information: Aluminium awareness information Key Facts: • Aluminium is great for incorporating into weight sensitive applications, such as this one. • Environmentally friendly aluminium is the only recyclable material that more than pays for it’s own recycling costs! • Recycling aluminium into new forms only requires 5% of the energy that originally produced it. • All manufactured aluminium is effectively a stored energy bank for future generations. • Aluminium is only 1/3rd the weight of steel. • Aluminium’s surface has a self generating and repairing oxide coating which makes it corrosion resistant and therefore less expensive to maintain than steel and other corrodible metals.Gooding Aluminium Limited1 British WharfLandmann WayLondon SE14 5RSUnited KingdomT: + 44 (0)20 8692 2255 F: + 44 (0)20 8469 0031 Email: sales@goodingalum.com
