Aker Solutions Splits into 3 Separate Companies

December 9, 2010

Aker Solutions has decided to create three separate companies., a strategic direction announced at the company's capital markets day in Oslo today. This is the conclusion of a strategy process initiated by the Board in second quarter 2009. "We have listened carefully to feedback from our customers and investors and analyzed how we should position ourselves to meet their expectations," says Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman of Aker Solutions. "Their feedback is consistent. Our company enjoys strong positions in several market segments. However, to further accelerate our growth, we should be more focused, more flexible in our approach to customer specific requirements, and much more transparent," he said.

Leading on from this, the next step is to cultivate the current Aker Solutions business into three separate companies:

The future Aker Solutions will be a fully-fledged provider of engineering, technologies, solutions and services for the upstream oil and gas industry. Its range of offerings will include deepwater drilling technologies, subsea oil and gas production systems, well services, mooring and offloading systems, wellstream processing technologies, as well as life-of-field solutions through its maintenance, modification and operations business. 

Aker Contractors will be a specialized EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) company with a strong position in the North Sea field development market, key positions in selected international target regions, and a strong offering of distinct offshore products with a global market. The new company will continue to target offshore and onshore EPC field development projects with the ambition to maintain its strong position in the North Sea and further grow its international presence

Process & Construction International, a leading global supplier of engineering and construction services to onshore industry segments.
