Aker Lands Troll B Work

Aker Solutions has secured a contract from Statoil to deliver a compression module for the Troll field in the North Sea, which will help boost output at the offshore Norwegian field.

The contract is valued at $44.9 million (NOK 370 million) and is an option in a front end engineering and design (FEED) agreement awarded to Aker Solutions in January. The scope includes engineering, procurement, construction and instalation (EPCI) work to boost the gas treatment capacity at Troll B to increase oil recovery.

"This project has targeted key cost savings to create the sustainability the industry depends on and is looking for during these challenging times," said Knut Sandvik, head of Aker Solutions' maintenance, modifications and operations business.

The engineering work will be carried out by Aker Solutions in Bergen and module construction will start at the company's yard in Egersund in 2017. The module will be delivered in the third quarter of 2018.
