Aker Wins Mariner Drilling Equipment Contract

change text size

Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions reported Wednesday that it has won a contract to supply a drilling equipment package to a production platform at the Mariner field in the North Sea.

Aker said the deal, which is with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, includes a complete topside equipment package. The firm will also provide support services to DSME's shipyard in South Korea as well as during the offshore installation phase. Delivery of the contract is expected to be complete during 2015.

The contract work will be executed mainly at Aker's Kristiansand and Asker facilities in Norway, as well as Erkelenz in Germany.

Aker added that the contract includes an option to supply an identical equipment package for the production facility at the nearby Bressay field. Mariner, which is located around 90 miles east of the Shetland Islands, and Bressay are both operated by Norway's Statoil.
