NorSea Vestbase’s location offers optimum conditions for providing efficient services for the oil & gas industry. The terminal and quay facilities ensure accessibility and capacity for bulk handling and handling of large individual jobs.
We have developed a total concept that includes all logistics-related tasks which must be solved at or from the base, such as efficient transport, shipping and customs solutions. NorSea Vestbase possesses expertise within core activities of terminal operations such as management, equipment coordination, purchasing, rig coordination and transport/forwarding.
Our infrastructure includes 11+2 quays, gross 570.000m² area, with 100.000m² workshop/storage/offices. Major bulk provider companies are established with lines directly to the main quays. Both MGO and LNG are supplied from Vestbase.
We offer a wide range of port services, including loading and unloading of vessels and trucks, internal transport, bulk handling and bunker deliveries. We also offer handling of OCTG as well as personell and transport sevices.
NorSea Vestbase offers a range of technical services, including industrial cleaning, preservation and inspection. Efficient solutions obviate the need for inefficient transport or exposure to damage, and Vestbase has the necessary facilities to achieve this. Partners are adept at working in teams, meaning that multi-discipline maintenance can be performed «on the spot».
NorSea Vestbase has long experience with mobilisation and demobilisation, inspection and certification of risers. In conjunction with contractors, we undertake all kinds of service and re-certification needed on workover risers to meet current standards, including DNV-RP-E101.
NorSea Vestbase has developed a unique system, depot and equipment for the disposal of rejected flexible risers. The disposal depot is located close to quay #2 where the risers are stacked, and this means that emissions can be cut to a minimum and operations can meet appropriate safety standards.
Equipment often needs to be preserved prior to storage, inspection, or before shipping to other locations. Among the operations are desalination, flushing to remove algae, mollusks and other marine growth, anti-corrosion measures, removal of flaking paintwork and simple assembly and disassembly.
Preservative coating, NDT inspections and other relevant services are offered for equipment, as necessary, in partnership with specialist contractors. Vestbase has a state of the art cleaning facility, including an ultra-high-pressure cleaning unit.
The offshore industry is dependent on specialised equipment, which requires significant investment. This equipment is stored on a standby basis. Vestbase offers recognised preservation methods to prevent atmospheric or weather damage, also for outdoor storage. Preservation is a cheap and effective investment to keep and conserve equipment.
NorSea Vestbase offer tailor-made warehouse services with a dedicated unit managing the multi-client warehouse. This provides warehouse services on behalf of clients which need local support.
