The Jotun FPSO production vessel has been producing oil in the North Sea since 1999. Vår Energi is the owner of Jotun and is thus responsible for the refurbishment of the ship.
The upgrade takes place at Rosenberg Worley in Stavanger. Jotun is scheduled to return to production on the Balder field during 2022.
