Flux Group was established in 2014 and has grown through three acquisitions including Norwegian Piping in October 2014.

«The contracts validates the strategy behind establishing Flux Group and strengthens our position as an attractive partner to leading companies on the Norwegian continental shelf », says Ådne Grødem, CEO at Flux Group.
Norwegian Piping will provide pipe, fittings, flanges and special items to the utility and living quarter (ULQ) platform for the Johan Sverdrup field. Kellog Brown & Root (Norway) AS and Kværner Stord AS were awarded the main fabrication contract in June 2015. Norwegian Piping’s deliveries commence during the summer next year. First oil from the Johan Sverdrup-field is planned for 2019.
Norwegian Piping is based at Sotra, near Bergen, with a branch office in Busan, South Korea. The company has established a strong position as a supplier of high quality pipes and related components to the oil- and gas industry, shipyards and land-based industry. Norwegian Piping cooperates closely with leading European pipe manufacturers and is actively engaged in NORSOK M-650 qualification processes.
«Norwegian Piping’s leading position within the pipe-market is fortified by the Johan Sverdrup contract. We have grown significantly in South Korea over recent years. We are however very pleased and motivated by having success at home and to be able to work on a mega-project such as Johan Sverdrup », says Gert Chr.
