Aker Wins Umbilicals Contract for Aasta Hansteen Field

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions announced Friday that it has won a $50 million (NOK 280 million) contract with Statoil to supply deepwater umbilicals for the Aasta Hansteen field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Aasta Hansteen is a deepwater project consisting of three structures – Luva, Haklang and Snefrid South – at a water depth of 4,265 feet. The structures are located 186 miles west of Bodø and 87 miles north of the nearest existing offshore infrastructure Norne.

The planned field development for Aasta Hansteen includes a SPAR platform, which will be the first such installation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. SPAR is a floating installation consisting of a vertical column moored to the seabed. The installation features conventional topsides with processing facilities.

Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any system requiring remote control.

The scope of Aker's work includes the design, engineering and manufacturing of dynamic and static umbilicals, a riser base and ancillary equipment. The steel tube umbilicals will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker's facility in Moss, Norway – supported by project management, design and engineering in Fornebu – while the umbilical riser base will be made at Aker's facility in Egersund.

Tove Røskaft, head of Aker's umbilicals business, commented in a statement:

"The Aasta Hansteen field represents an important milestone in harsh environment development on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Aker Solutions is proud to be part of this major project and we look forward to safeguarding valuable infrastructure and securing production success."
