It's Christmas in July for Aker Kvaerner

Aker Kvaerner said that it has won a two-year frame agreement to supply subsea Christmas trees to Petrobras. The contract has a value of approximately US$84 million.

The scope of work comprises 30 subsea Christmas trees with associated tools. The first call-off is to comprise nine dual-bore Christmas trees designed to 2,000-meter water depth plus associated sets of tools. Deliveries are to be completed from Aker Kvaerner's facility in Curitiba, Brazil, for delivery in the next 12 months. The duration of the frame agreement is two years, with an option to extend by one year.

“This award confirms not only Aker Kvaerner's performance and close cooperation with Petrobras on previous similar projects, but also Aker Kvaerner's established position as a strong supplier of Christmas trees in Brazil,” says Raymond Carlsen executive vice president of Aker Kvaerner Subsea.

Aker Kvaerner has extensive experience delivering subsea trees in Brazil, having delivered more than 130 subsea Christmas trees to Petrobras since the start of operations in Brazil.

The agreement is signed between Aker Kvaerner Subsea Brazil and Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.
