The project will be managed by Aker Kvaerner Subsea's umbilical and riser group in Mobile, Alabama, USA, with the first riser to be delivered in January 2008, followed by delivery of the second riser in January 2009.
The CLIP riser connector is a proven technology in deep water. Aker Kvaerner has successfully delivered the CLIP riser technology to Pride and Global for deep water operations.
