Aker Solutions to Supply Statoil Umbilicals in North Sea

Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Statoil to supply control umbilicals to the Norne field located in the Northern part of the North Sea. The contract value is approximately NOK 200 million.

The scope of work for the Fossekall-Dompap project includes a control umbilical system with a total of 26 kilometers of dynamic and static sections. The control umbilicals provide hydraulic, electrical and fiber optic functions for three planned four-slot templates and have a 2.5 inch MEG line (mono ethylene glycol) for hydrate prevention and inhibition during shutdowns.

The Norne field is located 200 kilometers west from Sandessjøen in a water depth of 380 meters and occupies blocks 6608/10 and 6608/11. The field has been developed with a production and storage off-loading ship tied to subsea templates.

"This contract signifies our leading position in the control umbilicals market. We are delighted to be awarded this fast track project from Statoil in the North Sea," said Tove Røskaft, senior vice president of Aker Solutions' umbilical business.

Engineering of the control umbilicals will be managed out of Aker Solutions' facility in Oslo, Norway and control umbilicals will be manufactured at Aker Solutions' facility in Moss, Norway. Final deliveries will be made in Q2 2012.

Aker Solutions holds a market share of more than 50% within steel tube umbilicals. This position has been backed by a strong focus on health, safety and the environment (HSE) which has been exemplified through reaching an important milestone of five years without a lost time injury (LTI) at both production sites in Moss, Norway, and in Mobile, Alabama.

Aker Solutions' contract party is Aker Subsea AS.
