Aker Wins Heidrun Platform Contract

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions reported Thursday that it has won a four-year deal with Statoil to supply, refurbish and store equipment for the control of production risers on the Heidrun platform in the North Sea.

The contract includes delivery of new equipment as well as maintenance and storage of existing materials. Aker will provide new tapered stress joints and a complete tension system for the Heidrun tension-leg platform. The contract also includes refurbishment and preservation of numerous stress joints, tension cylinders, tensioner frames and associated components.

The work will be carried out by Aker Solutions' drilling technologies business in Horten, Norway, with storage being handled by facilities in Kristiansund on the Norwegian west coast.

The contract has an option to be extended by a further four years.
