The Stavanger region has become a key international cluster within the energy industry. Both Dusavik and Risavika have excellent port facilities and are strategic locations for oil and gas activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The southern part of Western Norway centers around the city of Stavanger and the Greater Stavanger region, Norway’s third largest metropolitan area. The region comprising ten municipalities and approximately 345,000 inhabitants is known as an international cluster for the energy and maritime industries. The region has a strategic location for oil and gas activities on the NCS and short sailing distances to Europe and the UK, which has made it an attractive region for the offshore, container and cruise industry.
The two main locations for energy and maritime activity in the region are Dusavik and Risavika located approximately 10 and 15 minutes from Stavanger city center:
Risavika is a modern logistics port that operates as a broad hub for several industries. The base includes two offshore supply ports (ASCO and NorSea) that serves 10 oil and gas fields across 6 hubs operated by Aker BP, Lundin Petroleum and ConocoPhillips.
Dusavik is the main base for offshore supply and support activities for Equinor and Vår Energi in the southern North Sea. The base serves 14 oil and gas fields across 7 production hubs, including the major Johan Sverdrup field, the third largest oil field on the NCS.
ABP has secured solid footholds at both Dusavik and Risavika, including portside land, supporting industrial facilities and mission critical infrastructure.
Ideally located in Stavanger, Dusavik base is center for supply and support activities in the Southern North Sea for Equinor, Total and Vår Energi.
Dusavik is located about 10 minutes from Stavanger city center and is the main base for offshore supply and support activities for Equinor and Vår Energi in the southern North Sea. The base serves 14 oil and gas fields, including the major Johan Sverdrup field, the third largest oil field on the NCS. In addition, Dusavik base supplies the following fields: Sleipner, Gudrun, Draupner, Volve, Grane, Heimdal and Gina Krog, as well as exploration activities in the Southern North Sea.
Dusavik broadly consist of two main sections: (1) the portside supply base area and (2) a sizeable industrial, logistics and storage facilities cluster located next to the portside base. The portside supply base is owned and operated by NorSea Group, while ABP is the dominant landlord in the adjacent industrial cluster. ABP’s main customer is Baker Hughes, and this location is Baker Hughes’ main industrial site in Norway for subsea activities, and global Centre of Excellence for subsea manifolds and connection systems.
Risavika logistics base is a modern port just outside of Norway’s oil and gas capital, Stavanger. The base operates as a broad logistics hub, serving various industries, e.g. oil and gas, wind industry, general logistics and international ferry services.
Risavika is situated about 15 minutes outside Norway’s oil and gas capital, Stavanger, and operates as the city’s cargo port, freight terminal and broad hub for several industries. It has a strategic geographic location with short distance to mainland Europe and the UK. Over 30 energy and maritime service companies are active at the base, offering essential services to the tenants located at the premises.
The base includes two offshore supply ports (ASCO and NorSea), an international ferry terminal and a large adjacent cluster of storage and office buildings. ABP has a solid foothold in Risavika, owning a major section of ASCO’s portside facilities, the land let to Gasum’s LNG plant and fueling station, and a combination property fully let to the world’s leading energy services provider, Schlumberger.
Forus is one of the world’s leading energy clusters. The companies located at Forus account for a large proportion of Norway’s value creation. Over 2 million sqm of commercial property houses around 3,000 businesses and 40,000 employees at Forus.
Forus is a business area that developed following the discovery of oil and gas in the North Sea in the late 1960s. The area is situated at the intersection of three municipalities, with short distances to airport, railway and ports, and public transportation services. Forus accommodates more than 3,000 companies, among them several of the country’s leading energy companies, including Equinor’s Norwegian HQ.
ABP owns a flexible office building at Forus, fully let to Vår Energi on a long-term contract.
