Aker decided to change the set-up of the two business and Products & Technologies to reinforce its deepwater position.

The changes involve an integration of Aker Marine Contractors and our Well Service and Geo business units into the Subsea business area. In combination with our ownership and cooperation with Aker Oilfield Services, the new structure will also leverage Aker’swell intervention services offering.
