ENI signs umbilicals contract with Aker Solutions for an offshore Angolan (W. Africa) deep water region field.

The contract with ENI for the Block 15\06 West Hub development is worth approximately USD 50 million (NOK 300 million).

ENI has the operatorship of Block 15\06. The West Hub development project, which is part of 15\06, is located approximately 350 kilometres northwest of Luanda and 130 kilometres west of Soyo in Angola. The West Hub consists of the main field Sangos and two additional satellite fields called Cinguvu and Ngoma.

The steel tube umbilicals will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker Solutions' facility in Moss, Norway supported by project management, design and engineering in Fornebu, Norway.

Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any subsea system requiring a remote control.

"This contract reflects our strong ambitions for West Africa and our capabilities in Angola where Aker Solutions has invested for several years. We look forward to executing this project together with the client ENI," says Tove Røskaft, head of Aker Solutions' umbilicals business.
