Baker Hughes
Gulen Industrial Harbour
Baker Hughes in Sløvåg
We started up in 1998 in an up-to-date facility for handling of explosive for perforating equipment. During
the last 12 years there has been a stable workload in
regards to perforating, mainly for Statoil. The explosives are used before the production phase of the oil
starts. We have also achieved the record of length of
perforating with one firing head (2300 meters).
Gulen Industrial Harbour
Gas pipeline
A two hour drive from Bergen, near Mongstad,
you find Gulen Industrial Harbour. Gulen Industrial
Harbour has approx. 1 000 decare area regulated for
industrial activity.
Gulen Industrial Harbour has the potensial to establish
gas pipeline to the site.
We own a tie-point in Fensfjorden on the pipeline
from Kollsnes to Mongstad.
The harbour has 400 decare levelled site ready to
welcome industrial operations within the maritime
sector. The area has today 5 quays (2 deep-water
berths), and quay no. 6 (deep-water) will be ready
end 2012.
All our personnel are trained and drilled in
handling of explosives

Sløvåg Posten
til Oljemessa i Stavanger
Sløvåg-bedriftene har i år felles profilering på Sogn og
Fjordane sin fellesstand på oljemessa i Stavanger 28-31
august 2012. Derfor er denne utgåva av Sløvåg Posten ei
ONS-utgåve og kjem berre ut på engelsk.
Development and production “go hand
in hand”...
...and we are working to:
In 2005 extended our services and started with preparation of screen here in Sløvåg.
Screen is pipe with a filter inside to stop penetration
of sand when the oil flows, to explain briefly.
Since then we have been sending approximately 7000
screens offshore every year. We mainly have been
supplying the TROLL field, but we have also delivered
to other fields like Grane, Oseberg and Heidrun. These
are all Statoil fields and in addition we serve other
operator companies like BP, Exxon Mobil and Talisman.
Here are Baker Hughes personnel preparing screens to
go offshore.
We have a pressure testing unit for equipment up to 15
meters length and a torque machine for machining connections up to 42000 lbs/ft.
The Baker Hughes Drilling Fluids product line opened
in June 2007 a mixing station for brine here is Sløvåg.
Brine is a salt solution which is the basic component in
most fluids used when drilling. We transport the brine
with boats to Baker Hughes bases along the coast
from Stavanger to Sandnessjøen. There they mix the
brine with mud before they send it offshore.
Fleire av bedriftene i Sløvåg er viktige og seriøse aktørar
i Offshoremaknaden. Med kvalitet og kundefokus har me
ambisjonar om å vekse vidare i denne bransjen, i godt
samarbeid med både det offentlege og næringslivet.
expend the industrial area to 1 000 decare
create new activity
increase the employees from 250 to 500
build a dry dock

as a resource in the production/ with large power demand
Sløvåg- Industrien vil satse offensivt framover under
namnet Gulen Industrihamn!

Gulen & Masfjorden Utvikling AS
New terminal
Stimulating growth
After the well-known Vest tank accident in Sløvåg
2007, Alexela Sløvåg AS has invested more than
MNOK 500 into the rebuilding and upgrading of
the terminal.
Gulen & Masfjorden Utvikling AS is a development
company for the business in Gulen and Masfjorden.
The company is situated in Gulen Industrial Harbour
and its purpose is to stimulate growth among the
industry in the area.
This has been a long and demanding process which
has finally come to an end. In general one can say
that we now have a complete new terminal,
compared to what was here in 2007. The new terminal has a 94.000 m3 capacity.
Alexela Sløvåg AS New terminal
With history clearly in mind, our main focus has of
course been safety for personnel and environment.
This is implemented in all stages of the rebuilding
and last but not least, in the complete new firefighting system.
Gulen Industrial Harbour is an engine for the region,
and GMU has, amongst other things, been initiator
for the establishment of Sløvåg Næringsbygg. With
a floor space of 8000 m2, 30 businesses are
planning to establish in the building.
Landing of gas to Gulen Industrial Harbour has been
another of GMU’s priorities. The pipeline is preplanned with its connection point 4 km into Fensfjorden. The industrial area will be pre-levelled by
2014, and is a strategically good area for establishment with easy approach and a nice quay area.
The new firefighting system is a deluge valve based
system with a combination of foam and water used
as extinguishing agent. Fresh fire water is provided
from a 5.000 m3 fire water tank, that can be refilled with sea water if needed during the extinguishing process. The foam and water is pumped
into the 19 different extinguishing systems, by the
means of four pumps each driven by separate 575
BHP diesel engines, and it delivers 58.000 l/h if
needed. This combined with a highly advanced fire
& gas detection system delivered by Origo solutions, gives a state of the art firefighting system
very well suited for its tasks.
4x575 BHP Fire water pumps delivering 58 000 l/h
At Matre in Masfjorden BKK has extensive developing plans, and GMU has been the initiator for
Matre Næringsbygg. Feel free to contact us for an
informal talk if any of our projects is of interest.
