Aker Wins 5-Year Umbilicals, Cables Contract with Shell

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions announced Tuesday that it has won a contract with Royal Dutch Shell to deliver subsea umbilicals and cables globally.

The size of the frame agreement is dependent on call-offs and the number of projects that Shell decides to execute. However, Aker Solutions estimates that the frame agreement could generate revenues between $200 and $400 million. Order intake will be booked whenever the specific contracts are signed, the firm added.

The Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell is signed for the duration of five years with an option for an additional five years. Aker Solutions will deliver dynamic and static steel tube umbilicals for both shallow and deepwater applications.

"We look forward to safeguard Shell's valuable assets and contribute to their production success globally. Aker Solutions has developed market-leading umbilicals technology, proven to provide the widest range of functionality. We are extremely pleased and honored by this award," Tove Røskaft, who heads Aker Solutions' umbilicals business, commented in a company statement.

The umbilicals and cables will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker Solutions' facilities in Moss, Norway and Mobile, Alabama, supported by project management, design and engineering in Fornebu, Norway and the Mobile office.
