Aker Wins Shetland Gas Plant Contract

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions announced Wednesday that it has won a three-year contract to provide operations and maintenance services to the new Shetland Gas Plant.

The plant – which will receive gas from the Laggan and Tormore fields, west of Shetland – is operated as a joint venture by Total E&P UK and DONG E&P (UK).

The contract, valid for three-and-a-half years with an optional two-year extension, will see the creation of up to 150 positions both onsite at the Shetland Gas Plant as well as onshore at Aker's Aberdeen operation.

"This is a significant contract for us and I am delighted that Total E&P UK has chosen to build on our long-standing partnership with the award of this important contract," said Mike Forbes, UK managing director of Aker's maintenance, modifications and operations business.

"The Shetland Gas Plant will be an integral part of the future UK gas supply and we are pleased our expertise and track record for delivery have been recognised and we can continue to be a part of the UK oil and gas success story together with Total E&P UK."
