Offshore Canada Contract for Aker

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions reported Friday that it has won a five-year, $150 million contract with Husky Energy to support Husky's activities at the White Rose field offshore Canada.

Aker said the project will employ around 70 management and engineering employees onshore, as well as 20 people on rotation offshore. The scope of the work includes studies, modifications and campaign maintenance services. There is also an option to extend the contract for as many as 10 one-year periods.

"We are delighted that Husky has chosen us as their preferred partner for offshore engineering services at the White Rose field," said Tore Sjursen, head of maintenance, modifications and operations at Aker Solutions.

"Our presence in North America is increasing and the award will be a good foundation for further growth in Canada."

The White Rose field is located approximately 215 miles southeast of St. John's, Canada, and uses a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
