Aker Solutions Secures Utgard Tie-in Work



Aker Solutions has secured a services contract for the tie-in of the Utgard gas and condensate field to the Statoil-operated Sleipner facilities in the North Sea.

Under the agreement, Aker will provide engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) services. The work, valued at about $61 million (NOK 500 million), has already started and will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Aker Solutions in April won a contract for preliminary engineering work to enable the tie-in. The contract included an option for EPCIC work which Statoil has now chosen to exercise.

"We've worked closely with Statoil to find the most cost-efficient solution for this project, which builds on our capabilities in complex modifications," said Knut Sandvik, head of Aker Solutions' maintenance, modifications and operations business.

"We're very pleased to continue working with the customer to help secure important resources from this development,” he added.
