Aker Solutions

Aker Solutions has been awarded a five-year supply agreement from Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) for supply of subsea production systems equipment and services.

SSB has several existing platforms offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, as PSC operator to Petronas and with partners Petronas carigali and Nippon Oil Exploration (M) Ltd, where new subsea wells will be tied back to. The wells are found in water depths down to 200 meters.

"This supply agreement is a significant milestone for us as it is our first collaboration with Shell in this country. It is also an important recognition from one of the world's major oil and gas companies to our Malaysian operation and unique subsea manufacturing center," said president of Aker Solutions in Malaysia, Egil Martinussen. "The potential in the Sarawak area is big, and we look forward to working with SSB to develop it further over the coming years."

The scope of work for the five-year supply agreement includes design, manufacturing, testing, installation, commissioning, follow-on support and maintenance of wellheads, subsea trees, subsea control systems, flow bases and tie-in equipment.

Manufacturing and testing of all equipment will take place at Aker Solutions' hi-tech subsea manufacturing centre in the Port Klang Free Zone, Malaysia.

Contract party is Aker Solutions Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.
