Friday, January 25, 2013

Aker Solutions awarded Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) Aasta Hansteen deepwater umbilical contract by Statoil.

Aker Solutions' scope of work includes the design, engineering and manufacturing of dynamic and static umbilicals, a riser base and ancillary equipment.

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. The umbilical riser base will be manufactured at Aker Solutions' facility in Egersund.

"The Aasta Hansteen field represents an important milestone in harsh environment development on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Aker Solutions is proud to be part of this major project and we look forward to safeguarding valuable infrastructure and securing production success," says Tove Røskaft, head of Aker Solutions' umbilicals business.

Aasta Hansteen is a deepwater project consisting of the three structures Luva, Haklang and Snefrid South at a water depth of 1300 metres. The structures are located 300 km west of Bodø and 140 km north of the nearest existing offshore infrastructure Norne.

The planned field development for Aasta Hansteen includes a SPAR platform, which will be the first such installation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The contract value is approximately NOK 280 million.

(SPAR is a floating installation consisting of a vertical column moored to the seabed. The installation features conventional topsides with processing facilities.

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