Aker Solutions Awarded Umbilical Contract with Petrom

Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract to supply steel tube umbilicals to Rumanian oil company Petrom. The fast-track project, which will see the delivery being made as early as July 2008, is worth approximately NOK 55 million.

The contract is for the supply of 12 kilometers of steel tube umbilicals to the Petrom's Delta field development project in the Black Sea.

"There is a lot of activity in the market, with emphasis on early deliveries becoming an increasingly prominent feature. Our ability to be flexible and forward-thinking is what secured us this short-lead contract," says Svein Haug, senior vice president for Umbilical & Riser in Aker Solutions.

The umbilicals will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker Solutions' facility in Moss, Norway.
