The two parties had announced on 29 October 2000 that they had entered into a conditional agreement whereby Coflexip Stena Offshore will acquire the shares of the companies making up the Deepwater Division of Aker Maritime ASA for a value of $513 million plus the assumption of debt of $112 million at December 31, 2000.
